LeSean McCoy took to Twitter on Tuesday to quickly deny accusations of domestic violence leveled against him by a friend of his girlfriend, Delicia Cordon.
The friend, who goes by Mia on Instagram, posted a disturbing photo of what appears to be Cordon, severely bloodied and bruised. In the caption for the post, she accused the Buffalo Bills running back of assaulting her, his son, and his dog. Additionally, she accused McCoy of “drug usage”, including steroids.
McCoy quickly tweeted a brief statement, flatly denying the allegations.
“For the record, the totally baseless and offensive claims made against me today on social media are completely false,” McCoy’s statement reads. “Furthermore, I have not had any direct contact with any of the people involved in months.”

@shadymccoy is THE DEVIL!!! YOU ARE AN ANIMAL!!!!!! We didn’t say anything about how you beat your dog “Henny” into kidney failure. Let’s not talk about all the times my best friend had to stop you from VICIOUSLY beating your son for small things like peeing in the bed. We kept quiet about your drug usage ... all the ILLEGAL steroids and needles you were using, but we will not keep quiet about this!!!!!! I can’t believe you did this to my best friend!!!!! YOUR KARMA IS GOING TO BE SO REAL!!!!!! The world needs to know what type of animal you really are!!!!!!! This was just her yesterday on the left and now this morning this is her on the right!!!! #WomanBeater #AnimalAbuser #ChildAbuser @nfl @tmz_tv @buffalobills
According to ESPN’s Dianna Russini, the Bills are aware of the accusations and are currently looking into it.
Needless to say, if any of the domestic violence claims against McCoy are true, then he would be in major legal trouble and his NFL career should be over. But at this point, it’s still only an allegation with investigations still to come. There’s a lot to unpack from the accusations.
But whoever did this to Cordon clearly committed an ugly, reprehensible act. Domestic violence against children and pets should never be tolerated, either. These things shouldn’t even have to be said. But if McCoy is involved in any of these allegations, it’s yet another black mark for the NFL and its continued issues with domestic violence among its players. No matter who’s responsible, this could once again raise questions of whether the league is doing enough to solve the problem.
UPDATE: ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted on Tuesday a statement from the Bills: “We have spoken to LeSean and have been in contact with the National Football League. We will continue to gather information.”
