Despite the hand-wringing that followed Takkarist McKinley’s decision to say a very mean bad word at the 2017 NFL Draft, the league won’t fine the Falcons’ new first round pick.
Falcons' McKinley not facing fine for profanity https://t.co/AJq34SVFaE— vaughn mcclure (@vxmcclure23) May 1, 2017
Some were very disturbed by McKinley saying words that most people in the world probably say on a daily basis when they stub their toe, get caught in traffic, or find out someone ate the last slice of deli turkey out of the fridge. Some seemed offended that a man who overcame adversity to become a terrific football player worthy of being drafted in the first round might be a little excited and overwhelmed by the moment, because football players should be crew-cut robots beep boop. Still others...I dunno, took shots at a man for loving his deceased grandmother too much? I can’t keep up with all the really terrible, stupid takes out there.
Takkarist McKinley may or may not be a great football player when all is said and done, but he’s most assuredly not a bad person because he swore at the draft, and I’m glad he’s not being fined. Let us all move on.
