Kofi Kingston posted the following video to his Instagram account, commenting on the New England Patriots losing in a playoff game on Saturday. He actually blocked the official FOX Sports Twitter account. He said,
“The amount of people that have come out of the woodwork and gone out of their way to make cruel comments to me about yesterday’s @patriots loss is unconscionable. It is unjustified, unnecessary and most importantly, unwarranted. Were the shoe on the other foot, I would never make anyone feel badly in any way shape or form. I live by The Golden Rule: Treat others like you want to be treated.
From social media posts, to texts, to WhatsApp messages; the response has been outrageous. And hurtful. All my Patriots have done is provide you all with the rare spectacle of true and pure greatness for nearly 2 decades. Can you not appreciate this precious feat? When did being the embodiment greatness become such a reprehensible act?
Please try to understand that I am in mourning. How so many of you lack the ability to show sympathy or empathy for me during this situation is painfully baffling. Please, I beg of you, tread lightly and courteously as I find a way to navigate this extremely difficult and sensitive time. Thank you.”
