The real reason
Kansas City Chiefs Running Back, Kareem Hunt, was let go today after video surfaced of the 23-year-old having a physical altercation with a woman at a Cleveland hotel. The video showed Hunt shoving a woman, shoving a man into the same woman and even kicking her in the leg when she was knocked to the floor
Hunt was sent home early from practice after the video of the altercation surfaced and was eventually fired later on in the evening. The Chiefs released a statement on Hunt, claiming that he wasn’t truthful with the team during discussions about the incident and that the organization was made aware of the incident earlier in the year.
While The Kansas City Chiefs doing the right thing and releasing Kareem Hunt is commendable, it seems like they only did so after immense public pressure. In fact, The Chief’s statement about Hunt’s release seems to show that the team would have been ok with the incident had Hunt been truthful about the situation. Not only is that disgusting considering the fact that Hunt was shown on video showing and kicking a women, but also by the fact that The NFL still doesn’t know how to cover issues of domestic violence
