Apparently out for blood, a “woke” NFL Hall of Famer has complained that the fine levelled against Jack Del Rio for comparing the one-day Jan. 6th riot to the deadly, months-long Black Lives Matter riots of 2020 is “not enough.”

NFL Hall of Famer Ed Reed, a “woke” social justice warrior who thinks racism is one of “America’s biggest issues,” issued the complaint in a tweet posted Saturday.

“Today, im sick and tired! A dust up! 100,000 is not enough, money ain’t nothing to a person who is recycled through coaching. Its always one, first it was Saban now its Jack to just remind US what it is! Man if u coached by him put your pants on! Its simple right and wrong, Wrong,” he wrote.


As previously reported, the drama surrounding Del Rio, who serves as the defensive coordinator of the Washington Commanders, began last Monday when he posted a tweet saying he’d “love to understand … why the summer of riots, looting, burning and the destruction of personal property is never discussed but [the Jan. 6th riot] is.”

A day later, he doubled down, saying during a press conference that “businesses are being burned down, no problem… and then we have a dust-up at the Capitol, nothing burned down… and we’re gonna make that a major deal.”

Combined, the remarks triggered massive backlash that culminated in Del Rio issuing a groveling apology late Wednesday.

Two days later on Friday, Washington Commanders coach Ron Rivera fined Del Rio $100,000 and issued a scathing statement condemning him for daring to compare the one-day Jan. 6th riot to the so-called “peaceful protests” of 2020.

But apparently, all of this punishment — being fined $100,000, being condemned by the Commanders’ coach, and facing reputational tarring and feathering from the media — isn’t enough for Reed.

Responding to Reed’s complaint, some critics blasted him for his faux outrage.

Look (*Language warning):

Other critics said that regardless of what Del Rio had said, he has a right to his opinion.


Responding to this whole controversy, Fox News host Tucker Carlson said late Friday that Rivera for his part is nothing more than a “fascist moron.”

“A few days ago, Del Rio pointed out that nobody seems to talk about the BLM riots anymore. Instead, they’re pretending to care about Jan. 6th. He was attacked for this because you’re not allowed to, like, tell the truth at any level whatsoever. So he came back and said he stood by his comments,” he said.

“He thought he had a right to respectfully express himself in the land of the free, but it turns out no. Just hours ago the coach of the Washington Commanders, a fascist moron called Ron Rivera, announced that Jack Del Rio has no right to talk, and he’s being fined $100,000 for doing it.”
