Buffalo Bills quarterback Jake Fromm had to apologize on Thursday after a 2019 text message in which he used the phrase “elite white people” leaked out online.
Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk noted the leaked messages referenced guns and, on the topic of suppressors, Fromm wrote: “Just make them very expensive so only elite white people can get them haha.”
Buffalo head coach Sean McDermott discussed the situation:
“I’m disappointed. As a coach in the NFL, I know this hits very close to home, or hits directly home for a lot of the guys on our football team. When we talk about doing things the right way, I feel strongly about, as a country, right now we need to unify. I know emotions are very high right now and that’s to be expected, but as I shared with our players, let’s channel that energy into doing good in our communities.”
Here are those messages:
