For a second straight day, another member of the Philadelphia Eagles is getting blasted for something he said.
Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson has sent out several apologies and vowed to educate himself after posting on Instagram what he thought was a quote from Adolf Hitler saying, “the Jews will blackmail America. [They] will extort America, their plan for world domination won’t work if the Negroes know who they were.”
Jackson was condemned for what he posted, but not by fellow Eagles wide receiver Marquise Goodwin.
Goodwin made his own Instagram post claiming that “The Jewish community is lashing out at me.”
“I understand the Jewish community is mad at me for making a comment on Jacc page yesterday,” Goodwin wrote. “I honestly don’t see how I was being insensitive or disrespectful, or even supportive of his previous message. I never once said i agreed or disagreed with anything! I never mentioned Adolf Hitler or anything regarding the Jewish community. My comment under DJacc post read, ‘I wish people commented this much on a BLM topic’… In NO WAY do I condone anything Hitler related, AS I STRONGLY BELIEVE HE WAS IN THE WRONG. We all SHOULD come together in times like these instead of dividing.”
Here is what Goodwin said in the Instagram comments that got people upset at him:
Jackson has said he will meet with Jewish leaders in Philadelphia and educate himself. He should probably bring his teammate along with him as well.
