Monica Matthews, a Caucasian talk radio host on Atlanta's 95.5 WSB-FM, apologized on Twitter for claiming Denver Broncos draft pick Jerry Jeudy was in a gang.

Matthews was among a record 55 million viewers who tuned in to watch the 2020 virtual NFL draft. The Broncos picked Jeudy 15th overall.

Jeudy, who is Black, wears a Star of David on a gold pendant around his neck. The jewelry is commonly worn by members of the Jewish faith. But Jeudy is not Jewish.

The former Alabama star wide receiver explained to reporters that he wears the piece because his friends nicknamed him "Jew," which sounds similar to the "Jeu" in his last name. He said he didn't wear the piece to be offensive to Jewish people.

In a tweet, Matthews suggested that Jeudy was a member of the Gangster Disciples, a notorious street gang that uses an altered Star of David as their logo.

Matthews retweeted Georgia gang investigator Ray Haim's post suggesting Jeudy's Star of David is a gang symbol. Haim advised his followers to "Always look for gang identifiers... I had no idea this football player was Jewish." #gangcrisis."

Matthews captioned her tweet, "Wow. Never ends. #criminalgangs @NFL."

Her tweets have since been deleted, but not before her followers screenshot the tweets.

Twitter activist Tariq Nasheed referred to Matthews as a "white supremacist."

In response to angry followers who accused her of racism, Matthews tweeted: "Why is it so hard to believe gangbangers come in all sizes incl military, police, teachers? I'm going to leave it there."

Less than 24 hours later, Matthews apologized profusely to Jeudy in a video explaining why she jumped to conclusions based on a piece of jewelry.

She claimed she consulted with a "trusted source" (Ray Haim), and did no further research before defaming Jeudy on Twitter.

Matthews congratulated Jeudy on being drafted and she wished him good luck on his future career in the NFL.

Social media is buzzing over video of CeeDee Lamb reacting to his girlfriend touching his cell phone during the 2020 NFL draft.

For the first time, the NFL draft was held remotely due to the coronavirus pandemic.

As the minutes tick by, the Oklahoma Sooners star was anxious that he hadn't been drafted by a team.

CeeDee was expected to go early in the first round. Both CeeDee and the Cowboys were surprised to see he was still on the board.

The star wide receiver was so nervous when his phone didn't ring that he nearly yanked his girlfriend's arm off when she reached over to check if his phone battery had died.

It wasn't just his aggressiveness when he snatched the phone, but the way he cut his eyes at her for having the audacity to touch his phone. The debates were so fierce online that CeeDee defended his woman in a tweet:
 


 

Below is another angle that shows his mother's reaction to CeeDee displaying his true colors on national television.

Michael Sam

Michael Sam will probably never play another down in the NFL -- and he has no one to blame but himself.

Sam, a 24-year-old SEC Defensive Player of the year out of Missouri, announced his homosexuality in February, leading many to believe it was a calculated attempt on his part to boost his chances at the NFL draft in May. Being an SEC standout was no guarantee that Sam would be drafted at all. Even more suspect was the fact that Sam apparently inked a deal with Oprah OWN Network to film a reality TV series before he was even drafted. Then there was the wedding cake incident when Sam tongue kissed his feminine boyfriend on national TV on draft day. ESPN's cameras were there to film the 7th round draft pick licking icing off his boyfriend's face.

Odell Beckham Jr

When the St. Louis Rams selected gay football player Michael Sam as the 249th overall pick in the NFL draft, some of us chuckled because we knew that several gay players were already chosen ahead of him.

The other gay players chose not to come out as openly gay out of fear that their sexual preferences might affect their draft status. Sam was hailed as a "hero," but he has since been exposed as an opportunist who came out for financial gain. There is no doubt that Sam's sexual preferences for men affected his draft status.

Sources claim NY Giants rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr (pictured above) was so worried about rumors of his sexual preference affecting his draft status that he, or someone in his camp, created an elaborate Manti Te'o-style hoax to deflect such rumors.

Michael Sam and Vito Cammissano

Grown men recoiled at the sight of St. Louis draftee Michael Sam licking cake icing off the lips of his boyfriend, Vito Cammissano. Only seconds before "the kiss", these same men cheered St. Louis for having the courage to draft Sam with its 249th pick in the NFL draft on Saturday. 31 other teams had bypassed the SEC Defensive Player of the Year who was projected as a mid- to late round draft pick.

ESPN taped Sam's reaction and aired the tape immediately after his draft pick was announced. Social media's reaction to "the kiss" was wildly mixed. Some applauded the NFL, St. Louis and Sam for their courage. While others -- including professional and college football players -- expressed their distaste with ESPN for repeatedly showing "the kiss" on air. Many believed ESPN went too far.

Manti Te'o

Former Notre Dame star Manti Te'o isn't having a good week at the NFL Combines. The NFL scouting Combine, which ended yesterday in Florida, is where the top college player's display their best skills for the pros to determine how high they are chosen in next week's NFL draft.

If you recall, Te'o was in the news for mourning a dead girlfriend who existed only on his computer screen.

A male friend later stepped forward to say he was responsible for the dead girlfriend's fake online profile, which he says he created because he was in love with Te'o. The bizarre incident led to speculation that Te'o himself was gay.
