This is one of those moments where the San Francisco 49ers should’ve just stayed quiet and posted nothing.
Former 49ers safety Eric Reid wasn’t too fond of NFL teams using the hashtag “Blackout Tuesday,” so he proceeded to call out several of them that tweeted the hashtag and an image of a black box, including San Francisco, his former team.
“I think you meant Blackball Tuesday…I digress,” Reid said.
Tuesday was set as a day for businesses to pause and reflect in the wake of the killing of George Floyd—a Black man who died last week in Minneapolis police custody after an officer pressed his knee into Floyd’s neck for eight minutes.
Aside from the 49ers — Reid also criticized the Texans, Cardinals, Falcons and Bears for their posts, believing teams blackballed his former teammate Colin Kaepernick for kneeling during the national anthem in 2016 to protest police brutality and racial injustice.
He is currently unsigned after two years in Carolina.
