Tyreek Hill is continuing to have issues with New England Patriots fans.

Five seasons after a Pats fan threw a beer on him after he scored a touchdown, Hill is still not feeling the love from the crowd at Gillette Stadium.

On Sunday after the game, the Miami Dolphins wide receiver, 29, waved goodbye to the fans, some of whom were hostile in the face of their team losing a second straight game.

"It felt tremendous, man," Hill said, when asked by a reporter about his farewell gesture, according to ESPN. "Those fans are some of the worst fans in the NFL. And I'm going to stand on that; they are real nasty.”

He added, “Some of the things they were saying, I wouldn't say in church. So yeah, it felt great to wave goodbye to the fans, and I'll do it again. Bye."

In October 2018, Hill's hatred of Pats fans began when a man threw a beverage at the then-Kansas City Chiefs star’s face, after he scored on a 75-yard reception.

The man was charged with disorderly conduct and was banned from attending future events at Gillette Stadium, per ESPN.

Hill, who is in his second season on the Dolphins, appreciated the outcome of Sunday’s game in which he scored a touchdown on five receptions and 40 yards — and the Dolphins were able to hold on and win 24-17.

"It feels good, man. It always feels good to beat probably one of the greatest coaches of all time," he said, referring to Patriots' head coach Bill Belichick. "To come in here in a tough environment, to win a game like this on a Sunday night, it feels good — especially the way this team played, the way this team battled through adversity.”
