There is a reason people want athletes and entertainers to, for the most part, shut up and do their job. The reason is, most of the time when they open their mouths, they say something stupid.
And Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson is no better. What he said was not only stupid but worthy of an apology.
There are just some things you don’t talk about. And making reference to a President “not making it 4 years” can be construed by bad people in the wrong way.
But that’s exactly what Wilson did:
Barack isn’t coming back, Russell. Sorry ’bout that. Donald Trump is YOUR President now, whether you like it or not. Comments about him “not making it” through four years are borderline dangerous. You’d better hope nothing happens to him.
Be sure to share this with others. This kind of talk needs to be pushed back on. If he was talking about something else, than he needs to make clear that’s the case. Otherwise, he needs to apologize for this.
