‘He Sold Us Out’: Kaepernick-Backed Eric Reid Rips Malcolm Jenkins After On-Field Altercation

NFL players Malcolm Jenkins and Eric Reid had to be separated prior to Sunday’s game between the Carolina Panthers and Philadelphia Eagles due to some bad blood that turned into a confrontation.

According to Fox News, the two athletes had disagreements over a $90 million deal that the Players Coalition — an organization Jenkins cofounded — made with the league. The coalition agreed to stop kneeling in protest during the national anthem if the league would donate to player-supported organizations.

However, Reid left the organization over the deal and is now calling Jenkins a “sellout.”

Watch the video below:

“We believe a lot of players should have stepped up for [former San Francisco 49ers quarterback] Colin [Kaepernick],” Reid said after the game. “I believe Malcolm capitalized on the situation. He co-opted the movement that was started by Colin to get his organization funded. It’s cowardly. He sold us out.”

Kaepernick tweeted out his support for Reid and snubbed Jenkins:

When asked about the issue, Jenkins was very brief in his comments.

“I’m not going to get up here and say anything negative about that man,” Jenkins told reporters after the game.

Watch the video below:

However, Reid was very outspoken about his anger toward the issue and his opinion of Jenkins.

“It’s a combination. It’s systemic oppression, which is what I’m protesting, and neo-colonialism. Mad that it keeps happening. I would say he’s a neo-colonialist.”

Watch the video below:

The Players Coalition works to fix social justice issues and racial inequality. However, according to The Undefeated, Reid’s objectives didn’t match those of the organization, and he has directed his focus to helping Kaepernick get back in the NFL.

how is giving millions of $ to the black community so that some blood suckers can figure out a way to rip off their own people going to ease systemic oppression and neo-colonialism? Their issue is their perceived racism from all white people. How is giving money to the black community going to solve that one, if it even exists, which I don’t believe it does. I smell more greed, avarice and reverse racism at work!

So Mr. Reid objects to real funding of actual community service organizations versus the “idealization” of an idea and an “idolization” of an individual.
