Will DeSean Jackson be Cut from the Team? Eagles Organization says They’re “Evaluating”
"I want to apologize to the Jewish community, Jeffrey Lurie, Howie Rosemnan, Doug Peterson, the Eagles organization and out fans for the insensitive and ill-informed posts that I shared on my social media." Those were the first words in Eagles player Desean Jackson’s apology after his recent Instagram post caused a lot of controversy.
Jackson came under fire a few days ago after he posted a screenshot from a book that quoted Hitler. Parts of the quote said that Jews will hold back America from conquering the world. Obviously, this is a terrible thing to post, especially when a former owner of the football team you play for is Jewish. Joe Banner posted a tweet about Jackson’s actions and called it inappropriate. The Eagles organization also issues a statement condemning Jackson's post and promised to take action.
Jackson did defend himself in another story, but it was not well received. According to TMZ, he then went on to record a video apology about what he wants to learn from this experience. "This apology is more than just words -- it is a promise to do better. I will fully educate myself and work with local and national organizations to be more informed and make a difference in our community. I will consider my words and actions moving forward. I will seek out voices from other communities and listen to their words, thoughts and beliefs. In a time of division, I am committed to doing my part in making this world a better place for our children." Jackson said.
What do you think about Jackson’s apology? The Eagles said they will be taking “appropriate action” regarding this, what that means, we do not know.
