Riley Cooper of the Philadelphia Eagles has become famous for the wrong reason. Instead of achieving notoriety for his play on the football field, Cooper is now a household name for using a racial slur. Cooper used the “N-word” while at a Kenny Chesney concert.
Cooper was caught on video by a cell phone camera after he became upset with a black security guard. He later apologized for using the slur and was fined by the Eagles organization. Cooper also caught flack on Twitter.
Michael Vick’s brother, Marcus, also gave his opinion on Cooper and offered a bounty.
“Hey I’m putting a bounty on Riley’s head. K to the first Free Safety or Strong Safety that lights his a– up! Wake him up please,” Marcus Vick tweeted.
He also tweeted, “Hahaha! Peace of s–. Who want to play on a team with guys like that? Riley Cooper you’re a f— boy!!! Racist peace of s–.”
Michael Vick responded by saying, “Marcus doesn’t need to show a level of ignorance himself.”
Marcus deleted his tweets and later said his Twitter page was hacked.
