Eagles WR Riley Cooper yells at concert: “I will fight every ni&&er in here!” (VIDEO)
Yeah...that's EXACTLY what he said! If you don't believe us check out the video courtesy of Deadspin via Crossing Broad:Apparently Riley was on this rant after getting into an altercation with an African-American security guard. He allegedly used the word again outside of the concert. While this is yet another example of how racism has NOT been erased, the bigger question, is what should happen to Riley? After the public outrage at his comment and his stupidity given he plays a sport dominated by African-Americans, he issued an apology, via Twitter, of course:
So the question is, what should those consequences be? How will the NFL respond, and what will the locker room be like for Riley going forward. If you were his publicist what would you advise him? If you were Roger Goodell what would you do?
This story is not over.
