Riley Cooper Apologizes to Music Fans For Attending Kenny Chesney Concert
"I Am Deeply Ashamed of What I Have Done," Says Eagles WR
PHILADELPHIA – Backup Eagles WR Riley Cooper, responding to the outrage stemming from a viral video of him at a recent Kenny Chesney concert, apologized late Wednesday to, “all fans of quality music everywhere, for the inexcusable sin of actually attending a Kenny Chesney concert.”
“I am so ashamed and disgusted with myself,” Cooper wrote on his official Twitter feed. “I have offended the musical sensibilities of my teammates, my coach, Jeffrey Lurie, and the entire Philadelphia area. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a fan of dubstep, death metal, K-pop, funk-rock, techno, crunk, electronicore, Celtic punk or industrial hip-hop. We can all agree that my decision to attend a Kenny Chesney show was unforgivable, and I take full responsibility for my actions.”
Added Cooper, “I am deeply regretful of what I have done. I still can’t believe I actually sang along to the chorus of ‘Better as a Memory.'”
Cooper, in his 4th year out of the University of Florida, was expected to play a prominent role for the 2013 Eagles in the wake of the season-ending injury to starting WR Jeremy Maclin. The Chesney furor, however, has cast into doubt whether he can now fit in with his teammates.
“After what he’s done, Riley are obviously not on good terms at the moment,” said RB LeSean McCoy. “I mean, what the hell man? Kenny Chesney? If you have to go see a country act in concert, at least make it someone like Colt Ford or Bubba Sparxx.”
“He’s going to have a hard time winning back our trust, that’s for sure,” added OLB Trent Cole. “We take our rock, rap, synth and country hybrid crossover artists pretty seriously in this locker room. Cooper’s lost all credibility with us.”
