Arizona Cardinals star J.J. Watt had some issues with tight end Zach Ertz on Friday in the locker room.
Watt told a story about how Ertz said he was going to bring in donuts and asked the big man what he wanted.
“I am a big fan of the pink frosted, I think it’s strawberry, and maple glazed,” Watt told the camera. “He goes, ‘Cool, I will pick them up in the morning.'”
“He shows up with a boxful of donuts, no strawberry glazed, no maple glazed. I am extremely grateful for the free donuts, but do I have any ground to stand on to be upset?”
In regards to donutgate…
JJs first request, “pink/strawberry”, wasn’t even on the online ordering menu…
Therefore the rest of his order was disregarded 🤷🏼♂️
Let’s just focus on the part of me getting a dozen donuts and not focus on the rest 😂🤣 https://t.co/3vwvPHbN6s

Watt raises a fair question. Someone says they’re going to get you food, you are most likely expecting that food. Yes food is food but maybe Watt had built up his hopes a little too high.
Ertz had a quick and easy response when the camera panned over to him.
“No,” the tight end exclaimed.
Whose side are you on in “Donutgate?”
