We’re disgusted. In a video that’s almost too hard to watch, Jacksonville Jaguars player Dante Fowler is seen acting as a referee during a vicious fight between his girlfriend and baby mama. Since its release, he has apologized, but that doesn’t erase the footage from our memories. Watch it here.
Jacksonville Jaguars’ defensive end Dante Fowler, 21, should be ashamed of himself. Not only did he sit back and watch his girlfriend and baby mama violently attack each other, but he served as the referee in a video that has now gone viral. Watch it here.
After the video’s release by TMZ, Dante said he was completely “embarrassed” over it and he “apologized” for his “actions to everyone involved.” We’re just not so sure saying “sorry” is enough. The video is pretty brutal.
“I am embarrassed and have apologized for my actions to everyone involved. As a family, we have been dealing with this moment and the conflict that led to it since this occurred. The video surfacing is a sad reminder that emotions got the best of all of us. I take 100 percent responsibility for everything that happened,” Dante said in his statement, according to TMZ.
The Jacksonville Jaguars also issued a statement saying, “Dante brought the incident to our attention prior to the video being released and was embarrassed and remorseful. Violence of this type against others is unacceptable in our society and to our organization. We will continue to look into the incident while offering resources and providing support to Dante and his family to help them through this private matter.”
It’s unclear if the Jaguars will release Dante from his contract, but similar things have been done in the past with other sports stars. What do YOU think of Dante’s behavior, HollywoodLifers? Do you accept his apology? Tell us below.
