Unlike disgraced chef Paula Deen, a Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver was caught using the n-word on video. Riley Cooper, who heretofore was unknown outside of Philadelphia, was upset that a black security guard wouldn’t let him backstage at a Kenny Chesney concert.
A concertgoer who witnessed the 25-year-old Riley’s public meltdown sent this email to Deadspin.com:
Riley was going fucking nuts because he wasn’t allowed backstage. He didn’t have passes like some of the other players and was SO pissed that the stadium people wouldn’t let him back just because he was Riley Cooper.
He had had been drinking since 11 AM (Kenny didn’t go on until 8).
Feel free to use the attached pic of his car.
Cooper, who meant every word he said, was forced to apologize profusely on Twitter.com (not that anyone believes his sincerity).
Unlike Paula Deen, Cooper (who is just as racist as she is) won’t feel the wrath of civil rights leaders or corporate sponsors — mainly because no one has ever heard of him and he doesn’t have any sponsors.
That’s not to say that chewing tobacco sponsors aren’t lining up and waiting until this mess blows over to sign him.
Update: Now comes word that black security guards at the arena where the Kenny Chesney concert was held will be re-trained to recognize all 2nd string Eagles wide receivers to prevent a similar incident from occurring in the future.
