If you haven’t heard, Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper was video taped using the N-Word at a Kenny Chesney concert.
It’s a pretty inexcusable use of the word. Or is it? Cooper, who took heat for using the N-word, has since apologized and one of the Eagles top players has accepted his apology.
Quarterback Mike Vick took to twitter to let everyone know what he thought about Riley’s apology.
“Riley’s my friend Our relationship is mutual respect. He looked me in the eyes and apologized. I believe in forgiveness and I believe in him— Mike Vick (@MikeVick) August 1, 2013“
Marcus Vick, Mike’s younger brother wasn’t as forgiving. In a tweet that has since been deleted. Marcus had this to say:
“Hey I’m putting a $1000 bounty on Riley’s head. 1k to the first Free Safety or Strong safety that light his ass up! Wake him up please…..”
Now I’m definitely one for giving second chances to someone but I agree with both of the brothers on this one. Not the bounty part, but if Mike wants to forgive him good for him. And I also agree Riley needs a bit of a wake up too.
