Someone has clearly been hanging out with Paula Deen.
Riley Cooper, of the Philadelphia Eagles, was caught on video at a Kenny Chesney concert pointing off screen and saying:
├óΓé¼┼ôI will jump that fence and fight every n****r here, bro.├óΓé¼┬¥
And what├óΓé¼Γäós worse, moments later he got to join some fellow teammates and coach Chip Kelly on stage.
Well, since the video has gone viral, Cooper expressed his sorrow, saying:
“I am so ashamed and disgusted with myself. I want to apologize. I have been offensive. I have apologized to my coach, to Jeffrey Lurie, to Howie Roseman and to my teammates. I owe an apology to the fans and to this community. I am so ashamed, but there are no excuses. What I did was wrong and I will accept the consequences.”
At least he fully owned up to it! That├óΓé¼Γäós something.
But we’re baffled that people still say this horrible word.
Just stop it already!
It├óΓé¼Γäós hard to get the angry image or Riley out of our minds, but you can check it out AFTER THE JUMP!
