Darrelle Revis has a message for Jets fans: Let it go and leave him alone.
Fresh off securing his new team’s first victory with a late interception Monday night, the former Gang Green All-Pro cornerback blistered “bitter” Jets fans in an exclusive interview with The Post for harassing him and threatening him on Twitter since his trade to the Buccaneers in April.
“I get harassed every day on Twitter [by Jets fans], and I barely even tweet. And you just get tired of it,” Revis said after Tampa Bay’s 22-19 victory over the Dolphins at Raymond James Stadium.
“You’ve got to have a backbone, because guys are saying, ‘F–k you!’ and ‘I want to kill you!’ It’s crazy, but I’ve been getting death threats from them since my first holdout [in 2010]. It’s just bitter Jets fans.”
