Comedian DL Hughley attacked the Dallas Cowboys, Dak Prescott and Zeke Elliott, for supporting Cowboys owner Jerry Jones’ decision to force players to stand for the National Anthem.
“Let’s see in about 12 years when your brains are scrambled and you’re a big dude who is addicted to drugs, or addicted to painkillers and you don’t remember your name and you have an episode in the middle of a restaurant or in your home and the police come and don’t remember who you are,” Hughley said. “Black men and people of color do not get to enjoy peace.”
“I understand you want to make your money. You could have said nothing, but you chose to speak for the master. You chose to speak for the master. And I say this — it’s perfect for that two players who would speak up for the Cowboys owner — at least you got the ’boy’ part right.”
