MSNBC Host Joy Reid was named in a police report filed by former NFL Star Jack Brewer due to her inflammatory comments earlier this week, billing it “child abuse” that several black children involved with Brewer’s mentorship program stood witness to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signing an anti-critical race theory (CRT) bill.
Brewer also penned a letter to the television host demanding she apologize for her “reckless” statements that he claims have endangered the children involved.
“Ms. Reid’s reckless statements placed these kids in danger. Certain people motivated by Reid’s comments are furiously trying to figure out their identities,” Brewer said in the letter sent by mail and email, and shared with Fox News Digital early Friday. “The families are forced to deal with harassment by the media, and being shamed by members of the community, for their presence at the event. My foundation was forced to add security and police presence at our facilities.”
The founder of the Jack Brewer Foundation asserted that because of Reid’s outrageous tweets, police protection has been required to keep the boys safe at the facility and as they travel between various after school programs.
“This mis-use of Black boys is tantamount to child abuse. 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 tweeted last Friday.

Brewer slammed Reid for her actions in his letter to her noting that “the only thing ‘extra sick’ is the offensive tweet by Ms. Reid that slandered my name as a child abuser, and recklessly and maliciously placed young kids in danger.”
“Ms. Reid should know the kids she exposed are victims of schools that limit their educational success based on their demographic makeup, as a result of public schools embracing CRT,” he added.
On Saturday Reid provided an update with background information linking them to a Miami charter school and alleging that they “may not have known in advance why they were there.”
“Update: heard from a Florida source today that these black boys who America’s most racist governor used as props came from a Miami charter school (I won’t name the school to spare them from MAGA harassment/threats) & that they may not have known in advance why they were there,” she wrote in the followup post.

But Brewer was clear that the children were well aware of the purpose of the visit and the vitriol that CRT promotes.
“Our kids are very aware of the divisive ideology of CRT and are instead trained on biblical based principles of equality and pouring into their anointing as mighty children of God,” Brewer said in an interview with Fox News Digital.
“I’ve had to deal with people just because I happen to support conservative Christian views. I get a lot of heat,” he said. “Well, now my kids are feeling bad in their circles and in their community, and I don’t like that.”
“Now they’re questioning why people are saying that by them going and standing against things that we’re teaching them is wrong and … that’s really unfortunate,” he noted.
“I tell them that as long as they’re doing things for righteousness and for good, just like they persecuted Christ, they will persecute them. And that that’s really helped them kind of understand the situation,” the philanthropist said.
Earlier in the week, Brewer threatened legal action if Reid didn’t apologize for her tweets.

“Joy Reid messed with the wrong boys,” he said, noting that he would pursue legal action for defamation if he didn’t get an apology from Reid.
