The resignation of Las Vegas Raiders coach Jon Gruden hit the NFL community last week.

Minnesota Vikings legend Randy Moss isn’t the only one to suffer the aftermath of Gruden’s recent email scandal that led to his resignation as Raiders head coach on Monday. Gruden got caught up in a controversy over emails he had sent years ago that contained racist, sexist and homophobic language.

Moss spoke emotionally about the NFL Sunday Countdown after the emails leaked.

While Moss’ message was well received by his co-hosts, an internet personality mocked the Viking star for his emotional portrayal that led to Moss calling the troll.

Moss emotionally urged the NFL on Sunday to do better with its initiatives.

“I fell in love with football when I was six. I get emotional when I talk about situations like this. My civil rights were upset in high school because of the color of my skin, and now I’ve been able to play in the NFL for 14 years, ”said Moss. “Are we talking about leadership? We give guys these big assignments because they want 70 men, coaches, equipment staff and managers to achieve the # 1 goal – and that’s to win a championship. That we’re in the 21st. The clock is ticking, man. “

Jason Whitlock, a former sports reporter who became his show’s digital television host, Fearless with Jason Whitlock mocked Moss by beautifying his on-air response.

Whitlock has also referred to Moss as “Randi” and “Miranda” on his social media.

He wrote an opinion piece attacking Moss’ masculinity. He concluded the first paragraph by saying, “At least ESPN did not require the Hall of Fame recipient to wear a dress while pretending to be emotionally devastated by a 10-year comment in a private email that did nothing had to do with Moss. “

Moss replied and tweeted to Whitlock that there would be no conversation. It’s “on site!” Moss tweeted.

Moss later deleted the tweet, but Whitlock kept it as more ammunition amid growing animosity between the two.

Moss’ stance on Gruden is nothing new to the former Viking wide receiver.

When Moss was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2018, he wore a black tie with 12 names of black Americans killed by police or died in police custody.

His tie became a heated and controversial topic of conversation on social media, which was the opposite of his intentions.

“It wasn’t my intention to share. We are divided enough. My intention was to love. I just wanted to show these families that they are not alone and put some eyes and some light on the fact that there are still some families out there that really hurt out here. We’re in a crisis right now. Do you understand what I’m saying? Some people don’t want to see it, but all you have to do is open your eyes, “Moss told The Undefeated in 2018.” There’s so much going on, you know what I’m talking about and people have to understand that. Back in February (shortly after Moss learned he was being accepted in his first year of qualification) I told my tailor what I wanted to do. I just wanted some names on my tie. I knew there was going to be controversy about it and I didn’t care. “

Moss has been lauded by many professional athletes over the years for his foremost way of speaking on these topics after his playing career.

“Athletes are scared now. A lot of athletes, most boys, don’t want to talk about it. They are afraid of their careers. They are afraid of losing their job and use it to feed their families. Black athletes know that they are treated in a certain way. Most guys can’t really express their opinions. They worry about getting the same treatment as Colin Kaepernick, “Moss said in 2018.” Over 20 athletes in the NBA and the National Football League told me straight away what a great job I did. There are a lot of athletes in the National Football League right now who say to me, ‘Hey big buddy, it’s good man. One way to speak for us. ‘ I have black celebrities beating me up. I didn’t do it for the public. I did it for what’s right for families in need of this support. You need it now. And I won’t stop We can’t stop. “

Moss’ stance on Gruden is nothing new to the former Viking wide receiver.
