“I can’t believe you did this to my best friend! Your karma will become so real!” Boykin wrote in the post, which has since been deleted. “The world needs to know what type of animal you are! It was just her on the left yesterday, and now it’s her on the right this morning!”
Boykin also accused Buffalo Bills running back McCoy of beating his dog and trying to “viciously” beat his young son.
“We didn’t say how you beat your dog ‘Henny’ into kidney failure,” the message continued. “Let’s not talk about all the times my best friend had to stop you viciously beating your son for something as small as peeing in bed. We’re silent about your drug use.”
McCoy has vehemently denied the allegations against him. Representatives for McCoy did not respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Another social media user who identified himself as a friend of Cordon’s claimed that the NFL player sent armed men to McCoy’s house.
Cordon’s lawyers said an armed man had targeted jewelry her estranged partner had given to their clients. The company also claims that the NFL star recently changed the home’s security system.
“The attackers demanded certain jewellery previously given to Ms. Cordon by Mr. McCoy, and Mr. McCoy has repeatedly requested their return,” the statement said. “In fact, after Ms. Cordon refused to return her gift of jewellery to Mr. McCoy , he would often suggest to Ms Cordon that she might be robbed because the jewellery was expensive.”
The Milton Police Department confirmed they were investigating the break-in at the home.
“Preliminary investigations indicate that the residence was targeted by a suspect or suspects, rather than a random incident,” the Milton Police Department said in a statement obtained by Yahoo Sports.
“When the police arrived, they found one victim being beaten by a lone intruder. During the altercation, the suspect asked the victim for specific items.
“An adult female victim was treated and discharged from North Fulton Regional Hospital. A second adult female victim also suffered minor injuries during the incident,” the statement said, without naming Corden as a victim.
