During ESPN's Sunday NFL Countdown, former NFL star Randy Moss ripped into the "losers" in our country "protesting racism" and applauded Texas defensive end J.J. Watt as a "winner" for his impressive charity efforts in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.
“Over the last month, we’ve had a lot of losers in our country out here protesting racism, doing a lot of negative stuff. It puts a lot of bad shame on our country," stated the former New England Patriot. "But when you see the things that J.J. Watt is doing — bringing winners together, bringing the community together, bringing the whole state together ... "
Moss went on to announce he was sending cleaning supplies to the surrounding areas of Houston which will not have access to adequate aid.
Moss' comments quickly blew up online, as Black Lives Matter activists and supporters felt the wide receiver was slamming them. Moss subsequently tweeted clarification that he was calling out the "white supremacists who were protesting in Charlottesville."
There were reportedly hundreds of neo-Nazis and alt-right members at the Charlottesville rally, which was a national event that took months to organize. The rally turned violent when attendees clashed with left-wing Antifa members counter-protesting the event. Heather Heyer, a woman protesting the "Unite the Right" rally, tragically lost her life after a man with white supremacist ties drove his car through a crowd of counter-protesters.
Watt has raised over $20 million for the relief effort in Texas.
