Seahawks’ Kam Chancellor Calls For ‘Character Over Color’ After 911 Incident

Seattle Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor is letting his voice be heard after a couple gym employees called the police on him earlier in the week after he looked through the window, because he was interested in purchasing it.

The lady on the 911 call described Chancellor and his friends to the 911 operator, “I don’t know if they’re homeless kids. I know that there used to be a lot of heroin addicts around here.” 

Once the Seahawks safety heard that audio, he posted this photo on Instagram that compared his friends to a photo of homeless meth addicts:

He then took to Twitter and posted these series of tweets:

Chancellor, in a radio interview with 99.1 FM in Seattle:

“We were like, ‘Can we just get information? That’s all.’ We don’t want to do anything else but get information,” Chancellor said. “We didn’t knock on the door anymore after that. We just waved them like, ‘Could you please come here?’ But they decided to stand 10 to 15 yards away behind a desk, saying, ‘We’re going to call the cops.’”
