Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper could be getting a lot of dirty looks the next time he walks into his team’s facility. Cooper, who is expected to have a bigger role in Philly’s offense now that Jeremy Maclin is out for the year, attended a Kenny Chesney concert earlier this summer. Unfortunately, someone caught him on video saying something very racist.
Cooper reportedly got into an altercation in the parking lot before the concert, but that was a separate incident. He apparently got into an argument with someone inside the concert as well, and Crossing Broad has obtained a video of the 25-year-old dropping an N-bomb during the disagreement. Here’s the clip, which obviously has a NSFW word.
As The Big Lead pointed out, the guy in the video is definitely Cooper. You can see him in this video taking the stage with Chesney wearing the exact same outfit. Unless there was someone at the concert with the same exact outfit that looked exactly like him, it was him.
Cooper said he was talking about a black bouncer when he made the comment. The fact that there are people out there who still say racist things like this is enough to make you cringe, let alone someone who plays in the NFL and takes the field alongside several African-American teammates day after day. I’m sure Cooper will have plenty of explaining and apologizing to do.Google+
