Redskins WR Terrelle Pryor claims Chiefs fans were calling him racist slurs

The NFL players have been protesting the National Anthem because many players feel they are not treated equally. Terrelle Pryor was the most recent player subject to derogatory remarks from fans.  According to TMZ Sports, Pryor was cussed at as he walked into the tunnel following the ‘MNF’ game against the Chiefs. He shot back with a middle finger and an F-bomb.

Now, Pryor says he reacted after things had gotten racial.

“Being called a n***er several times to the point where an NFL employee had to step to me and stand by me the whole game from 2nd quarter on is the exact reason why guys are kneeling during anthem,” he wrote in a statement.

“As I walked in tunnel hearing some one call me a n***er and say F you to me … flicking the person off is more deserving.”

“I do apologize to my teammates and the organization. But at some point you keep calling us the N word .. we going to start acting up. #straightlikethat”
