Even with Tom Brady, the New England Patriots still have controversy following them.
Justin Rohrwasser was selected in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL draft at No. 159 overall by the New England Patriots and he immediately had to face questions on his controversial tattoo while addressing the media.
Justin Rohrwasser has a 3 percenter tattoo.
“The Three Percenters (also styled 3 Percenters, 3%ers and III%ers) are an American far-right militia movement and paramilitary group.The group advocates gun ownership rights and resistance to the U.S. federal government’s involvement in local affairs.
The group’s name derives from the disputed claim that only three percent of American colonists took up arms against the Kingdom of Great Britain during the American Revolution.
The Southern Poverty Law Center categorizes the Three Percenters as an “anti-government” group. Some Canadian experts consider the group the “most dangerous extremist group” in Canada.”
Rohrwasser said he got a tattoo of the Three Percenters symbol as a teen because he thought it was a representation of military support, according to NFL Network’s Mike Giardi.
He noted that he plans to get it covered up and added: “Turned into something I would never want to represent. Should have done way more research on it.”
