Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper was recently caught on tape making a racist comment during what appears to be an argument. According to Philadelphia sports blog Crossing Broad, Cooper was at a Kenny Chesney concert in June when this incident took place.
WARNING: VIDEO CONTAINS OFFENSIVE LANGUAGE
Shortly after the video began going viral on Wednesday afternoon, Cooper tweeted what appeared to be a related apology.
A fifth-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, Cooper had 23 catches for 248 receiving yards last season for the Eagles.
UPDATE: Both Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and the NFL released statements on the video. Lurie said Cooper has been fined. More via Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer:
... in a civil society. He has accepted responsibility for his words and his actions. He has been fined for this incident."
