Over the Fourth of July weekend, Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson shared an anti-semitic quote on Instagram that was attributed to Adolf Hitler and promoted controversial Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
The quote he shared from Hitler was attributed to the Nazi party leader in the image Jackson provided, but research shows the quote is not real. The screenshot appears to come from the book "Jerusalem" by Dennine Barnett, but the origin of the quote itself is somewhat a mystery. A Snopes article has a different version of the quote and concludes it is a "hoax quote."

"Anyone who feels I have hate towards the Jewish community took my post the wrong way," Jackson said. "I have no hatred in my heart towards no one!"
