Eagles Riley Cooper Caught Saying Racial Slur on Camera at Kenny Chesney Concert (Video)

Last season, Riley Cooper was targeted just 47 times when the Philadelphia Eagles offense had the ball.  And after footage of the 25-year-old wide receiver uttering racial slurs at a Kenny Chesney concert spread like wildfire over the internet today, he could probably expect to see even less looks in 2013 from his black quarterback, Michael Vick.

Last month, Crossingbroad.com unveiled footage of Cooper getting into a fight in the parking lot following the concert, and now they have unearthed the following video, which shows a presumably drunk and angry Cooper saying “I will jump that fence and fight every n*gger here, bro,” to a camera while taking in the concert from inside Lincoln Financial Field.

Yeah, that probably won’t help endear him to his Eagles teammates.

Now, for those wondering what could have made Cooper so angry, it has since been reported that he was mad because a security guard denied him backstage access.  And during a press conference earlier today, Cooper acknowledged that the security guard was in fact a black man.

In addition to the press conference, Cooper also issued an apology on Twitter, as is standard protocol for all athletes looking for forgiveness:

It sure sounds like Cooper is extremely sorry about his poor judgement and choice of words, but I wouldn’t expect that to stop all African-American defensive backs and linebackers from going headhunting for #14 in green whenever they take on the Philadelphia Eagles this season.
