If you are a fan of Fantasty Football or have even watched the NFL on Sundays, you’ve probably heard the name Isiah Crowell. Crowell, 23, is a running back for the NFL Cleveland Browns. Unfortunately for him and the Cleveland Browns, because of his recent stupidity, many others will know his name as well, but not in a good way.
Isiah Brown recently posted an image on Instagram of an police officer brutally getting his throat slashed in a similar way we have seen radical terrorists like “Jihadi John” beheading American victims. The image showed blood gushing out of the side of the police officer’s neck.
How careless and insensitive can Isiah Crowell be? What American, let alone a professional NFL player, would post an image of such brutality towards our police officers, when many families of in Dallas and other cities are still mourning the loss of their loved ones? How can one be so stupid? Or is your past felony weapon’s charge catching up to you?
Here’s Crowell’s post:
The Cleveland Browns running back, Isiah Crowell has recently apologized for his social media reaction. I’m guessing the Brown’s front office must have been livid. They probably had to persuade him to make a statement. Anyone can tell Crowell’s lines are specifically crafted for political correctness and the apology is at most insincere.
He said his reaction to the killing of two black men, Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, by police was “very wrong” and that he made an “extremely poor decision” when he posted the picture on Instagram of a police officer getting his throat slit from a hooded individual. He said he had “an emotional and difficult week”.
Here’s Isiah Crowell as he spoke to the press:
“Last week was an emotional and difficult week as we saw extreme acts of violence against black men across our country as well as against police officers in Dallas. I posted an image to Instagram in the midst of that emotion that I shouldn’t have and immediately removed it. It was an extremely poor decision and I apologize for that mistake and for offending people. My values and beliefs do not match that image,” Crowell said in a statement.”
DUDE! COME ON!
We all have “bad weeks” but did you really have to be THAT insensitive to the police officers who protect even your own butt while you have the privilege to play running back for the NFL Cleveland Browns? You can bet the NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell, will have something to say about this?
Hey Isiah, here’s a “radical” idea. Maybe next time when you are running out of the stadium onto the field, you could notice a few of those police officers that are positioned around your field and protecting your butt. Maybe a friendly and personal sincere “thank you” to them would be nice.
