Many people are wondering what NFL star Charles Leno Jr. is thinking today. The Chicago Bears’ offensive tackle proposed to his girlfriend live on national television this past Sunday, and just days later the woman’s old racist social media posts went viral on social media.
Charles Leno, a 27-year-old Oakland, California, native, got engaged to his girlfriend of five years, Jennifer Roth, in the grandest of ways. As seen via his Twitter post, Leno got down on one knee in the middle of Soldier’s Field and proposed before the world.
As you might have expected, Roth said “yes.”
Him : Will you marry me?
Her : Only if you , Beat the Pack & Win the North
Him : Done ✅ pic.twitter.com/hDW2LtYiSt

The public proposal comes on the heels of Leno signing a $38 million extension deal for the team he has played for since 2014 after being drafted in the seventh round out of Boise State.
Twenty-four hours after an emotional high from the proposal, several tweets surfaced of the girlfriend Roth liberally throwing around the N-word and calling Black people ghetto, according to screenshots captured by Perezhilton.com and theybf.com
In one post, Roth commented on NBA player Jimmy Butler getting a victory. She said, “Jimmy Butler got a win:) Loss for Nash, Melo and Griffin. Damn, all my n—–s took a loss in the NBA tonight.” In another post, she said “b—-es think they slick but they be acting like n—–s.”
Leno was already being buried with hate by White supremacists and Black women alike for propose to a White woman publicly. And now Leno has been ambushed by this latest news of his fiancée’s old messages.
Here is a sampling of Roth’s postings below:
After Roth’s private thoughts became public, social media pounced on her with fervor. One person came at Leno hard on Twitter, pointing out what Leno will and will not take a knee for:
Charles Leno's fiance looked like she calls him that, too

#JenniferRoth will secure the bag $$$. Have his kid & divorce him. Rinse & repeat. These black athletes never learn. #CharlesLenoJr will learn the hard & expensive way.

Leno, of course, had some backers to offset the detractors, but not many.
