The Las Vegas Raiders are now under fire after sending out a bizarre tweet in the wake of the George Floyd trial.

The Raiders official Twitter account tweeted an image with the phrase ‘I can breathe 04-20-21.’

As The Daily Wire reports:

The Las Vegas Raiders caused an uproar on Twitter after posting a tweet regarding the announcement of the verdict in the George Floyd case in Minnesota on Tuesday.

As The Daily Wire reported, “After a little over ten hours of deliberation, a jury on Tuesday found former Minneapolis Police officer Derek Chauvin guilty of second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter in relation to the death of George Floyd.”…

The tweet in question was pinned on the Las Vegas Raiders football team’s Twitter profile on Tuesday evening. The graphic in the tweet contained the phrase, “I Can Breathe 4-20-21”

Users took to Twitter to call out the team for its seemingly inappropriate response to the verdict in the George Floyd case.

Who cares the Raiders have sucked for years. The NFL is in it’s death throes as more and more people realize they don’t need these overpaid athletes turned politicians. Better to watch college – high school and/or Pop Warner games.

I agree with you 100%. But most of us are wary of college athletics because the NCAA is a known political pawn. Big money college sports provide all the rookie talent and will follow the NFL, NBA and MLB all the way to checkers.

Boycott. The only thing thankless, brainless, anti American, racist, entitled, gutter trash understand is MONEY. Make it hurt. Make it so owners CAN NOT PAY THE RIDICULOUS PERVERSE UNDESERVED SALARIES to blind owned wastes of life.

We cut all ties with the NBA and NFL 3 years ago and this year the MLB joined them. Of the NCAA wants to join that list go ahead and make the same stupid decisions they made. No sweat off our noses or money out of our pockets. We can live without them.

I can’t believe how American people let worthless politicians say will use tax dollars to pay for sport stadiums. America is lacking any common sense.

Now, they can use their sports stadiums to house all the illegals they are importing.

We had better get rid of the Dimocrat rulers ASAP.

I watched that Chauvin feller get convicted today. He stood up, got handcuffed and went to jail real peaceable like… I reckon that Floyd feller would be alive today if he’d a done the same thing.

Looking at your rhetoric that you can breathe, I find it very difficult to relate, since he was slammed a lot harder than they said he would be to begin with, but then again that it the left for you , THAT and the fact that so many of the jurors were afraid of what blm would do if they did not go along…..
george floyd was NO angel true, did he deserve to die, NO he did NOT, but he put himself in that position by fighting the police and the arrest, he was a small time stupid criminal, and when saying stupid, mean that it was his drug use, which got him there……..
On the other hand we have Derek Chauvin who was a cop out to stop criminals he got into a ruckus with a criminal and during the fight of trying to detain him got his knee from the shoulder to the neck, it should NOT happen, but it did….Does he now deserve to spend the rest of his life behind bars because of some overzealous jurors, I really do not see that as justice…..
we were told before the verdict that he would get one of the three, NOT all three slammed on top of each other…..and then the vegas raiders think they are being cute making fun of the whole damned thing……..Can only say “Hope they lose the whole damed season”………

I personally believe this case will be appealed, and reversed, or at least reduced to manslaughter. Then, brace for incoming riots!

There are already riots no matter what happens. It’s just BS to riot. It’s to scare us serifs into thinking the Deocraps can protect us. I think Mr. Winchester, Smith & Wesson, Colt, Ruger and many others can do a much better job. They are ALL EQUAL OPPUNITY and COLOR BLIND and NO PC! OPEN SEASON! NO LIMIT!

I used to love the Raiders…. back in the day (late 70’s-early 80’s)…. But, like so many actors who I enjoyed watching their “work”, when you are left, you just can’t help yourself… The deep evil inside of them just comes out unhinged….

But…. I woke up this morning, one day closer to the rapture! Are you ready?

Crap like this is the reason I no longer follow any sports at all anymore. It’s amazing how much time and freedom I have now to do other things. Life is much better now, so I guess that I owe them a thank you for driving me away. I think that I’ll stay away as well.

Hope elites are pouring their money down sports rat holes so they can’t fund BLM or Antifa with it.

NFL stands for national felony league and we the people do not have enough sense to not NOT attend these games. Notice that the NBL backwards is the same as the racist unamerican idiots blm…….If people did not attend a pro sport game for six months the price of a ticket would be reduce greatly as would the price of a beer. Six months is all it would take to show these over paid murders, wife beaters, druggies, sex perverts and racists that we the people have the power to end their B.S. and take our country back. In 6 months the price of a ticker would be 1/5th of what it is now. Show these racist rich sickos who runs this country. If they can not stand for the anthem or the flag they can go to hell.

Interestingly the black policeman who shot and killed Ashlii Babbit on January 6th in Washington D.C. has never been identified and he has not faced any charges. Black privilege and supremacy once again.

Statistics in mind, whichever cretin posted this remark is merely telling us that, whatever his race, sex, color, creed, or previous condition of servitude, he did not resist arrest.

In the spirit intended by the cretin, 99.9% of the time, law abiding citizens breathe just fine during and after interacting with police.

This is another reason I have not watched a pro sport event in person or on TV. Do not attend any pro sport event for 6 months and pay 1/10 of what you are paying now. Pay one dollar for a beer not 12. Wake up and wise up people we have enormous power and we need to use it to show people who do not like America how much we have.

Are ORGAN Grinders coming back to the street corners with these players with the cup collecting change? I want to see that. May be better show than when they play sports. Haven’t watch Pro sports in 30+ years. Can’t stand the over bearing over paid A-Holes.
