Benjamin Watson was like every other football fan on Sunday night watching the FSU vs. LSU game, but he came away upset with what he saw with a particular fan base.
The former NFL tight end, who played his college football at Duke and Georgia Tech, took issue with Florida State’s war chant or face paint. He believes it’s offensive to indigenous people.
“These kids on national tv with “war paint” on their faces, chanting and chopping their arms like all the indigenous people they’ve spent time with is killing me,” he wrote.
Unfortunately, not many people agreed with his take.
Florida State topped LSU in epic fashion on Sunday night as they moved their record to 2-0.
Watson was selected in the first round of the 2004 NFL draft by the New England Patriots. He played most of his career for New England, but also had successful stints with Cleveland, New Orleans, and Baltimore.
He won a Super Bowl and finished with 547 receptions, 6,058 yards, and 44 touchdowns.
