Kareem Hunt Released By Chiefs After Video Attacking Girl Surfaces

Yesterday we reported on the security camera footage that captured Kansas City Chiefs star running back Kareem Hunt attacking and kicking a 19-year-old Cleveland girl to the ground inside his hotel.

In response, the NFL put Hunt on the Commissioner’s exempt list which forbade Hunt from any team activities including practice, workouts, and games.

But that wasn’t enough. A much stronger message than “sit on timeout in the corner and think about what you’ve done” needed to be sent. Whether it be a result of a moral conscious attack or the unwillingness to endure the white-hot public backlash that would surely ensue, we’ll never know, but in either case, the Chiefs decided to release Hunt from his NFL contract according to ESPN. He is no longer an NFL player.

“Earlier this year, we were made aware of an incident involving running back Kareem Hunt,” the Chiefs said in a statement. “At that time, the National Football League and law enforcement initiated investigations into the issue. As part of our internal discussions with Kareem, several members of our management team spoke directly to him. Kareem was not truthful in those discussions. The video released today confirms that fact. We are releasing Kareem immediately.”

Last year Kareem Hunt lead the NFL in rushing and this season was among the league’s most explosive players across the board. Kareem is also an abuser of women as the video footage shows and for that he doesn’t deserve the privilege of playing in the NFL. The question is, do the other 31 teams in the league believe that…?
