NFL Star Doubles Down On Anti-White Comments Amid Criticism

National Football League (NFL) star Rashard Mendenhall recently doubled down on anti-White comments he made, saying that he’s sick of “white guys” commenting on football. He proposed for there to be an “All-Black vs. All-White Bowl” instead of the annual Pro Bowl.

On X, formerly known as Twitter, Mendenhall responded to critics over his race-baiting comments, writing that he’s “simply tired of being berated by people who aren’t experts in [the] game” after being called a “racist” by some of his follows for going after “white” NFL analysts.

“We [just] pretend like I’m the only athlete tired of fans talking trash?” Mendenhall continued. “You [this] upset over a single tweet. What about us? Like me or not, I’m a GREAT in football. This proves my point, [you] can’t speak on a ball alone.”

Mendenhall’s comments come after the Pittsburgh Steelers running back decided to denounce White individuals commenting on football.

“I’m sick of average white guys commenting on football. Y’all not even good at football,” he wrote on X. “Can we please replace the Pro Bowl with an All-Black vs. All-White bow so these cats can stop trying to teach me who’s good at football? I’m better than ur goat.”

Mendenhall’s anti-White post has become the center of controversy in the NFL world, garnering nearly 70 million views.

The NFL running back’s post was met with fierce criticism from some of his supporters, who wrote that they were “upset that you’re a racist,” demanding he apologize for his post.

“You literally made a living playing a game because of the fans and then you say racist things to those same people,” one individual replied. “You’re not the victim here.”

Another X user said, “You’re the one who made it about white people. Don’t complain now if you’re getting dragged. Frankly, you deserve it. Everybody knows why you chose to assign a [color] to the generic non-athlete with an opinion. Racist.”

“People aren’t upset over the majority of that tweet…They are upset over you bringing race into it. You could have easily called out any non-college athlete, non-pro football player, etc… but you turned it into a race focus. That’s on you,” another person wrote.
