Drew Brees has returned with a second apology over his statements regarding kneeling protests after his controversial remarks received backlash.
Over the last few days, we've watched plenty of people catch the wrath of the public after making controversial remarks. Drew Brees has had a rough time after he made statements about not agreeing with the peaceful protest of kneeling because he claims it's disrespectful to the flag, the military, the National Anthem while disregarding the reasons why Colin Kaepernick and others kneeled in the first place. Drew Brees was swiftly put in his place by players in the NFL, celebrities, commentators, and fans who couldn't believe that he would continue this false narrative that has been proven to be untrue. Brees returned with an apology, writing a lengthy statement on Instagram. However, people still weren't having it. Then, Brees came back once again, this time with a video apology to all.
"I know that there's not much that I can say that would make things any better right now, but I just want you to see in my eyes how sorry I am for the comments that I made yesterday," he said in the clip. "I know that it hurt many people, especially friends, teammates, former teammates... people that I care and respect deeply. That was never my intention. I wish I would have laid out what was on my heart in regards to the George Floyd murder, Ahmaud Arbery, the years of social injustice, police brutality, and the need for so much reform and change in regards to legislation to bring equality to our black communities."
"I am sorry, and I will do better and I will be apart of the solution and I am your ally," he added. Watch his clip below.
