Our intern Alex covered this, but Im sure you all know the drama thats hit Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson. Yeah, he only posted some anti-Semitic crap on his Instagram account. Yes, its Louis Farrakhan, a vicious anti-Semite who isnt all that bothered when people compare him to Adolf Hitler. Thats what he said in the clip that Jackson posted, which has now been deleted. Needless to say, thats problematic, right? Its wrong in so many ways, and the owner of the Philadelphia Eagles, Jeffrey Lurie, is Jewish. Jackson has apologized, but this notion that youre not anti-Semitic, but post their nonsense to your account is, well, trash. And he almost got away scot-free. There was a period where no one was covering this grave social media mishap that would have most being given a pink slip. Only Yahoo! Sports appeared to be the only ones covering until Kyle Neubeck of Philly Voice got on the story:
Football coach wears an OAN shirt and it's the biggest news of the day and leads to him losing $1 million of his salary.
Wide Receiver promotes Louis Farrakhan and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and it barely even trends on Twitter.

Different skin colors = different standards
I’ve heard that the Eagles are trying to figure out if they can get out of his guaranteed salary if they cut him. He’s a popular guy amongst fans but he missed the entire season last year (15 out of 16 games) and hasn’t finished a season in many years. I think the Eagles were already nervous about him actually playing meaningful snaps. Then he starts quoting Hitler. The ice under his feet is about one molecule thick at this point.
Where there is a will there is a way.
One America News is news.
People who think Hitler thought black people were the real Israel are barking mad moonbats.
Given that the Left does not like real news and loves moonbats It seems a foregone conclusion even if they had been of the same face.
Agree with you about the coach wearing the OAN shirt.
When he volunteered the cut in pay and cut in contract, I was really dismayed.
Even worse when he went on an apology broadcast - looked like a hostage video.

I’m about as certain about the OK State coach suggesting his own paycut as I am about the Nascar “Noose”. The lefties keep flipping the channel before any of this stuff gets resolved.
He didn't lose a million bucks, he offered it up to the mob so that they would stop picking on him.
This pussy is like a high school kid giving up his lunch money to the class bully.
If he was coaching my team, I'd fire his ass, not for wearing a tee shirt, but for caving like a soccer player, not a football coach.
I really don't follow college football, but I'll be eyeballing this weak sister and his demise.
“If he was coaching my team, I’d fire his ass, not for wearing a tee shirt, but for caving like a soccer player, not a football coach.”
Gundy was told to do and say all that he did by the athletic director and the college administration. He didn’t think of any of this on his own.
Even worse. So he caved under pressure.
If he had any balls, he'd have told them to piss off, get fired, and sue the ass off of them.
He is a pussy and gave up without a fight so that he could "protect his salary" for another weak kneed assault on him.
Jackson and other revisionists are the REAL racists, enemies of freedom, Marxists.

You got it. He should have quit when they told him what to do. It isn’t like he needs the money. And it would have opened doors down the road. Now is is known as a pussy, with no real recourse.
