Miami Dolphins offensive line coach, Chris Foerster, has resigned shortly after an explicit video of him snorting cocaine was leaked yesterday. Ironically, the same person he was so inclined to share the obscure activities with is now being blamed for his outing, being accused of fame-seeking.
The 33-year-old Las Vegas model, Kijuana Nige, divulged the video on Facebook proclaiming “coaches should take responsibility for their actions” in a stand against the hypocrisy of public punishment of NFL players for taking-a-knee against police brutality. Foerster, ranked one of the highest paid assistant coaches in the league, bringing in an estimated $2.5 million a year. While the media and President Trump alike have blamed their shaming on the players’ large salaries and should behave conducive to their financial success as entertainers, this incident has very well put fire under other highly paid professionals in the same arena.
The video was allegedly taped inside the Dolphins campus, as Foerester dressed in work attire stated “How about me going to a meeting and doing this before I go?”. In outrage of Foerester being granted the opportunity to resign instead of being fired, ESPN analyst Stephen Smith, responded to the news saying “If this were a player, I don’t care what ethnicity he is, we’d be all over him! We need to be all over him!”
Nige, a woman of color, was cyber attacked for leaking the video and in defense commented on Facebook “I have plenty of white friends so I’m not making this a race issue. People are missing my point. My point is everyone has to be accountable for their decisions they roast players over anthems while the coaches be [explicit] and probably can’t sing along.”
