Outrageously Racist Richard Sherman Twitter Comments Hit Internet

The reaction from Seattle Seahawks football player Richard Sherman to advancing to the Super Bowl sparked controversy among some football fans, but the racist reactions to it on Twitter were beyond disproportionate in response. Sherman, who intercepted a pass from the San Francisco 49‘ers quarterback that sent his team to the Super Bowl. In a brief post-game interview on the field with Erin Andrews, his remarks that many felt were arrogant and over-the-top quickly went viral.

“When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, that’s the result you gonna get. Don’t you ever talk about me,” said Sherman. When Andrews asked who was talking about him, he said, “Crabtree. Don’t you ever open your mouth about the best or I’m gonna shut it for you real quick. L.O.B.”

After the game, several football fans unleashed outrageously racist comments at Sherman in reaction to his interview. “Richard Sherman just proved you can take the ni**er out of the hood, but you can’t take the hood out of the ni**er,” wrote @steveflei. The comment was particularly ironic since he attended Stanford University. Nonetheless, it didn’t stop @TheDonjT from tweeting, “I hate Richard Sherman man. Idc where he went to school. He’s a f*cking ni**er.”

At least 40 tweets involving Sherman and the use of the N-word could be seen within hours after the game. @Mrr_Jackson referred to him as a “f*cking porch monkey,” while @BMWyco wrote that “Sherman is still a ni**er..And my cotton still isn’t picked.” @Freshman_Nick3 even suggested that “Sherman should get lynched.”

    I hope Karma hits all involved!Whoever covers Sherman in the Super Bowl I hope WHIPS HIS BUTT. And I hope every racist who made the equally stupid remarks has it come back in some way to bite them in the ass.. Neither of them are right. None of them deserve anything good.

    • thomasbone63

      What did he say that was racist? All i heard was the man telling the truth. Why is it that White people hate even discussing the point that racisim is alive and well. Why do you fear this conversation? There’s a new buzz word out here. You don’t have to say the ‘n’ word, you’ve subsituted it with the term ‘thug’. Isn’t that a bitch.

      • jenn

        I work in a prison, I see all races of thugs.. “Thug” is not “another word for the N word” .. It’s a another word for Bully, for Bastard, Thief, Drug Dealer, Intimidator…. IJS

        • thomasbone63

          We are not talking about prison life. We know the meaning of the word “thug”. We are saying that word has now become the subsitute word for “n” by the people that are too coward to use it.

      • Marcus Vittitow

        I was talking about his cockiness about the guy that covered him all day in the 49er game! He won the damn game but he showed no class when his mouth went off at the end of the game!

      • jenn

        If your going to attempt to call people out, be brave and just say what you think.. “Gringo” really, you mean white people.. the word “Cracker” (just as offensive as the N word”, your post is riddled with the same racisim your trying to debunk. While I agree with you that JIHAD is an idiot, the way your posting, makes you look just as racist…

        • chocolatedrop

          you are. spell check

    • thomasbone63

      You love using that trashey ‘N’ word. I don’t know whether you are black or white, you need to drop the word out of your vocabulary. Its fuc**ing disgusting.

    • jenn

      1st, it’s “cheer”, Then you make a b/s statement.. I (a white woman) have never heard anyother white person say/claim “We brought Africans to civilization” … And there are savages in every race… I believe the Boston Marathron Bombers are savages, The Taliban, Hell, the GOP of our own government…

      • thomasbone63

        Jenn, I guess you are just part of the perfect race. The KKK believes the same thing. Oh, how’s the grammar?

  • Jason Williamson

    Lol I instantly became a Sherman fan! Hell someone with mad skills and emotion and an education to boot!! Stanford, really?

    “Haters hate, because they supposed to Hate, that’s their mother f%^*ing job! CAT WILLAMS, pimp chronicles!

  • Kaleo Heavyweightchamp Griffin

    Ha ha, lol. Showing thier true colors. Lol I am down with you rich! L.O.B.

  • thomasbone63

    For the people out here, stop saying racism dose not exist because there is a Black Man living in the White House. By President Obama being elected tiwise brought your closet racist out of the closet. These are facts. There was never so much hatred pointed at one President as it has with President Obama. It’s a damn shame.

    • jenn

      Twice and Does (not Tiwise and dose), I mean really does anyone on the internet know how to spell properly? The Potus being elected twice shows that not all people care about skin color, some actually want someone capable of not screwing the country more that G.W. did. Closet racist have come out of all races, there are even BLACK people calling for the Potus to be “hung” or “lynched”… #Sickening

      • chocolatedrop

        oh pease we are blogging! not in a spelling contest. did you understand what he meant?.. snuff said. go sit down

        • FalconTypo

          Wow… apply to YOU much?

          • thomasbone63

            You want to give grammar lessons too or can you read through the grammar errors?

          • FalconTypo

            When a person has to read a post twice to understand what he/she is saying, that’s pretty bad. Especially when errors are basic third grade-level issues.

          • thomasbone63

            can you understand this “kiss my ass”

          • FalconTypo

            When one is losing an argument and resorts to the metaphorical equivalent of sticking out his tongue, the other side rests. Case made by the ignoramus himself.

            Haava grate degih!

          • thomasbone63

            Hey, this to the guy that won’t use his name. Kiss where the sun don’t shine. Did you understand that or were there too many grammar errors?

        • thomasbone63

          No, Jenn wants to be a little bitch.

      • FalconTypo

        It’s also “POTUS” by the way… when it’s an acronym, use all capitals.

        • thomasbone63

          Jenn, Miss smart ass.

          • Guest

            That would be “Miss Smart…” (I do not call people names to make a point–that is a low, too obvious logical fallacy).

            She has a good point; however, she had a stark error IN her post.

          • Keeps’sReel

            Uncle Tom, please learn to spell, learn to post. Not all of us understand ghetto trash lingo. Don’t call women (wimminz, as you would say) bitches, Uncle Tom.
            In case some idiot doesn’t understand why I called Uncle Tom, Uncle Tom, I did so because that’s his name, Umm Kay…

      • thomasbone63

        Did you get the jest to what the hell i was saying. When i want a teacher, i will hire your ass. White people did not put the President in office and you know this this. You voted for Romney and lost. Yeah there are blacks. There were ignorant blacks during slavery, nothing new. However, the point still remains and you proved it today. It kills you white people that there’s a Black man living at 1600 Penn. Ave and there’s nothing you can do about it.

      • thomasbone63

        It only comes out the white race, don’t try to cover it up.

  • DD

    Amazing how low some people will stoop to insult someone. Throwing around insults and slurs is the lazy and stupid way to address an issue. It’s hard to actually THINK about something, so they throw around slurs instead. Distusting.

  • chocolatedrop

    wow! the com enters are truly racist and stupid. Mohammed Ali and a host of athletes did this type of talking and it was always laughed at. what a racist country we live in. seems worse. the guy was joking! go get them Sherman. Hope Sherman tears it up at the super bowl

  • William Bell

    Rush Limbaugh, Faux News and the Republican Party has made this a divided country for their own purpose, If a Republican starts the next WAR will Republicans only be required to fight? What have the repulsive right really done to this great country long term?

  • Keeps’sReel

    Sherman is not smart. They gave him a free ride because he played football. They always give them good grades, they don’t even show up for class.
    Now a days we can’t call ghetto trash, ghetto trash, because reality isn’t acceptable when it’s blacks involved. PC shit, from Democraps…
