Black Twitter took offense to NFL Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe saying that he only went to an HBCU because he had terrible grades.

Sharpe, who is considered one of the best tight ends in NFL history, created a frenzy on social media just hours after Deion Sanders’ announcement that he was leaving Jackson State for the University of Colorado two years after publicly advocating for HBCUs.


Some fans have called Sanders a sellout for allegedly abandoning the only place that would hire him after his alma mater, Florida State Univsersity, refused to even give him a look.

Sanders ended up taking a head coaching job at an HBCU, Jackson State University, in Mississippi. In three years, Jackson has was won back-to-back SWAC conference championships. But as soon as the confetti deluged the field, Sanders announced that he’s traveling over 1,200 miles to Boulder, Colorado, to take over the University of Colorado head football coaching job.


Black Twitter was highly offended that Sharpe referred to HBCUs in such a negative, “sloppy” way and they let the former Denver Broncos star have it.

Some interpreted Sharpe’s words differenty and more or less take up for the gridiron legend.
