A former Florida Gators player is under some heat about a racial slur he made that was caught on camera.
Riley Cooper, Eagles current wide receiver, said he is "ashamed and disgusted" with the racial slur he made at a Kenny Chesney concert after the video surfaced on the internet Wednesday.
"I want to apologize. I have been offensive. I have apologized to my coach, to Jeffrey Lurie, to Howie Roseman and to my teammates," Cooper said in a statement released by the team. "I owe an apology to the fans and to this community. I am so ashamed, but there are no excuses. What I did was wrong and I will accept the consequences."
Cooper is entering his fourth season in the NFL. He has 46 catches and five touchdowns in three years with the Eagles.
