Any Philadelphia Eagles fans out there? Anybody? Well fans, you need to come get ya boy because somebody got some liquid courage at the country music concert and declared his desire to “fight” all us alleged “n-words.”
Oh, TMZ. Is there anything you won’t document? Thanks for looking out. It’s always good to know who you need to avoid.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper — who is white — is begging for forgiveness after a video surfaced showing the 25-year-old threatening to fight “every n**ger” at a country music concert.
The video was shot June 9 during a Kenny Chesney concert in Philadelphia … where a sleeveless Cooper turned to the camera and says, “I will jump that fence and fight every n**ger here.”
Now, after the video, which first appeared on CrossingBroad.com, began making the rounds on various websites, Cooper has released a statement saying, “I am so ashamed and disgusted with myself. I want to apologize.”
For your viewing displeasure you can hear the “threat” here:
Is it sad that I find this more funny than maddening? Cooper plays professional football. A sport. Filled. With black people. Black people who basically try to body slam you for a living and that’s without having insulted them! The Eagles have already “fined” Cooper for his statements, but what kind of “fines” will be racking up come football season in the form of full body checks? Only time will tell!
