Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson defended himself after posting anti-Semitic comments he attributed to Adolf Hitler and the leader of the Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakhan.
In an Instagram post on Monday, Jackson put forward a quote he linked to Hitler. It reads: “(White Jews) are going to blackmail America. They’re going to extort America, their plan for world domination won’t work if black people know who they were. ”
He also published on two occasions, Saturday and Monday, to show some form of admiration for the place of Farrakhan who is known to share anti-Semitic visions.
Jackson was heavily criticized for his publications and the receiver tried to rectify the situation by suggesting that he had not been understood.
“Anyone who feels that I hate the Jewish community has misunderstood my message,” he posted on Instagram. I have no hatred towards anyone !! Equality. Equality ”, can we read.
