Jadeveon Clowney doesn’t want to talk about trash cans or the Jaguars

NFL: San Francisco 49ers at Houston Texans Shanna Lockwood-USA TODAY Sports

After the Jacksonville Jaguars beat the hell out of the Houston Texans 45-7 on Sunday, which included quarterback Blake Bortles throwing for over 300 yards and three touchdowns, Texans defensive end Jadeveon Clowney called Bortles “trash” after the game when asked about his performance. This opened up Clowney to being clowned by Jaguars fans, but one Jaguars fan decided to have some fun with it and troll Clowney.

Bonnie Upright, a Jaguars fan, decided to ship Clowney a trash can for his trash comment.

"It's Christmas. It's the season of giving," Upright told Mike DiRocco of ESPN. "Let's have a little fun with it. So I did. I was respectful. I didn't go at [Clowney] personally. Didn't say anything hateful or mean. I just wished him a merry Christmas from a trash-loving Jaguars fan."

Well, evidently Clowney didn’t think it was very funny.

“I’m done with the Jaguars. Don’t ask me no Jaguars questions. Any more questions?” Clowney told reporters on Thursday during the Texans open media session.

Some Texans fans have criticized Jaguars fans for the prank, saying they should have donated the money to charity instead in Clowney’s name, but between sending roughly 40 children to the Texans game thanks to fan donations rounded up by the Bold City Brigade/Teal Street Hooligans and those fan groups routinely donating to the Blake Bortles Foundation (That Ms. Upright used to work with), the Tony Boselli Foundation and an annual Toys For Tots tailgate drive, I think they’re just fine pulling a prank like this.

Clowney registered four total tackles in Sunday’s loss, with no quarterback sacks and left the game about three times due to being dinged up.
