Things are going to get quite awkward around the Dolphins organization.
Kenny Stills is not a fan of Donald Trump and he’ll call out anybody for being a supporter of his, even if that person signs his check. The Miami Dolphins wide receiver condemned team owner Steve Ross for getting set to host a fundraiser supporting President Donald Trump’s 2020 re-election at his New York residence.
Via Sun Sentinel:
“Although Ross supports Trump’s re-election efforts and the two have been personal friends for decades, a source close to the Dolphins owner and wealthy New York real estate developer says Ross does not support Trump’s views regarding race.
“They agree on some things and disagree on others, specifically on the rhetoric around race,” the source told the South Florida Sun Sentinel. “With regards to race, Stephen’s record on fighting racism speaks for itself. It is possible to support someone on the basis of some things, and not agree with everything about them.”
Here’s what Stills had to say:
“You can’t have a non-profit with this mission statement then open your doors to Trump,” Stills posted on his Twitter account.
The tweet features a screenshot of the mission page on a website created for the Ross Initiative in Sports for Equality, a nonprofit that seeks to educate and empower “the sports community to eliminate racial discrimination, champion social justice and improve race relations,” according to its website.
Stills was one of the teammates who kneeled alongside former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick during the National Anthem in 2016.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
