Terricka Cromartie Posts Instagram Blaming Anthem Protest For Husband Being Cut
Baby-makin’ baller Antonio Cromartie no longer has a job with the Indianapolis Colts and according to his wife Terricka, it’s because Antonio got his Colin Kaepernick on and the team wasn’t with the s#!ts.
ESPN is reporting that Terricka Cromartie took to Instagram to air out her displeasure with Colts owner Jim Irsay’s comments about players who choose to use their professional platform to make social commentary.
Here’s what he told the IndyStar yesterday:
“I think it’s the wrong venue,” Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay told USA TODAY Sports. “It hasn’t been a positive thing. What we all have to be aware of as players, owners, PR people, equipment managers, is when the lights go on we are entertainment. We are being paid to put on a show. There are other places to express yourself.”
In her now deleted Instagram post, here is what Terricka said about Irsay and her husband:
“You are Nothing More than an Entertainer. Just Shut and do what we say. You have No rights as along as you are working for me.. there are other places for you to fight and stand for what you believe,” the post said.
The post added: “One things for sure I know my husband was told Not to take a Knee and he went with his heart and he took one. And that cost him his Job.. and Clearly this Statement backs that up… Just a Paid To put on a show.”
IndyStar Sports journalist Stephen Holder isn’t completely sold that the protest was the cause of Cromartie’s demise
Guess it would hard to prove that taking a knee cost Antonio his job, but as shady, janky and duplicitous as the NFL can be, it wouldn’t surprise us in the slightest if that was the reason Cromartie was cut.
