Former NFL player threatens MSNBC host with lawsuit over ‘child abuse’ attack
Former NFL player Jack Brewer is threatening to promptly sue MSNBC host Joy Reid for accusing Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) of actions “tantamount to child abuse.”
After DeSantis signed into law the Stop WOKE (Wrongs Against Our Kids and Employees) Act last Friday, Reid attacked DeSantis over young black boys who held anti-critical race theory signs at the bill-signing ceremony.
“This mis-use of Black boys is tantamount to child abuse,” Reid said. “I would really like to hear the back-story on who these kids were and how they wound up at a DeSantis event. Given how anti-Black DeSantis is, using Black children this way is extra sick.”
Reid later said the boys were used as “props” by DeSantis, whom she described as “America’s most racist governor.” She even claimed without evidence the boys “may not have known in advance why they were there.”
Brewer, who played in the NFL from 2002 to 2006, is now demanding an apology from Reid — or else he will sue her for defamation.
Despite Reid claiming the boys were from a Miami-area charter school, Brewer told the Washington Examiner the boys are members of an after-school program operated by his foundation, the Jack Brewer Foundation.
“She has completely humiliated my kids and my program,” Brewer told the news outlet. “It’s just so hurtful, and she needs to be held accountable.
“She does it so often. And you know, her words and the way that she comes across to black America leaves a stain on all of us,” he added. “I won’t put up with it when it comes to my kids.”
