Meet Riley Cooper. He’s a wide receiver with the Philadelphia Eagles and is set to play a bigger role with the team since Jeremy Maclin is out with a season-ending injury.
And from this point on, there will be added danger every time he runs a pattern across the middle of the field.
The above video shows Cooper at a Kenny Chesney concert this summer. And it shows Cooper clearly using the “N” word. What he says:
“I will jump that fence and fight every nigger here.”
Apparently Cooper had gotten into a skirmish in the parking lot before the concert. For whatever reason, he was in a fighting mood.
Once the video was leaked yesterday on the crossingbroad.com Web site, this was Cooper’s response via twitter:
Consequences? Cooper might have to face those tomorrow in practice, and during the rest of the season as he runs passing routes.
Mr. Cooper, get ready for a hard-knock life. Hope you’re in a fighting mood.
