The video was reportedly leaked by a Las Vegas-based stripper by the name of Kijuana Nige, who says the footage was sent to her by Foerster. In a lengthy Facebook post, Nige explained why she chose to release the video.
Her Facebook post reads (H/T Heavy),
“I really don’t do this often but… since it’s NFL Sunday let’s talk about these coaches folks,” Nige wrote.
“Introducing Christopher Foerster Miami Dolphin offensive line coach Hey honey are you still high.”
“The white people mad at me like I forced blow down this mans nose and like I recorded it on tha low. … No those are his habits and he recorded himself and sent it to me professing his love. So quick to make excuses for him but will roast a minority player over an anthem, dog fights, weed, domestic issues etc. But y’all keep saying ALL LIVES MATTER STFU”
She added, “if his ass was black they would be dragging him thru the (mud) face 1st.” “They better leave ppl like Colin Kaepernick alone before I pick off more of’em you know this sh*t easy 4 me,” she wrote. Nige also posted the video to Instagram, writing, “What would Miami Dolphin coach Christopher Foerster do for the pwussy” She commented on the Instagram post, “they better leave my homie Colin alone and focus on this N*gga right here.”
