Earlier this week, Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson used a gay slur during an exchange with a caller while Jackson was a guest on the “All Out Show with Rude Jude and Lord Sear” on Sirius XM Radio.
Jackson released the following statement through a public relations representative:
“In a recent radio interview a caller got really confrontational with me. I got very heated with the caller, took it a bit too far and did not mean to offend anybody. I meant no disrespect and a better choice of words was needed.”
Before releasing the statement, Jackson had addressed the issue with a pair (1,2) of messages on Twitter.
“WANNA BRING ME DOWN BUT IM OK!! THEY TRYIN KNOCC ME OFF BUT IM STILL ON!!,” Jackson wrote. “THEY LOOKN 2 TAKE YA DOWN AT ALL TIMES NO MATTER HOW POSITIVE AND WHAT U DO!! ITS ALWAYS AWAY THEY TRY TO GET YA…. IM STANDIN TALL”
