NFL Anthem Kneeler Caught Kicking, Shoving Woman
UnderArmor may have dropped him, but Nike will be happy to pick him up.
Video footage published Nov. 30 shows Chiefs running back and Willoughby South graduate Kareem Hunt shoving and kicking a woman in a hallway.
The video of Hunt, obtained and published by TMZ Sports, is related to a February 2018 altercation on an early Saturday morning at The Metropolitan at the 9, Hunt’s hotel apartment in downtown Cleveland. Police were called and a report was previously made, but video footage was not available until it was published by TMZ.
In the video, Hunt is seen coming out of a room and talking to a woman off camera. When she approached him, he shoved her. When another man came out of the hotel room and tried to intervene, Hunt continued to lunge toward the woman. As more people came into the hallway, Hunt had to be restrained several times as he made advances toward the woman and other people. At one point, he appeared to knock two people over with a shove, including the woman he initially shoved. At the end of the video, Hunt kicks the woman as she’s crouched on the ground.
The Chiefs have not commented on the video, and the NFL did not take any action against Hunt after the altercation was reported to police in February.
Of course it didn’t. The NFL is a safe shape for criminals.
Wilson was among several players who took a knee at least once last year during the Chiefs season.
Along with Wilson, Chiefs players who took a knee last season included Justin Houston, Tyreek Hill and Kareem Hunt.
Hunt turned in a phenomenal performance but also opted to speak about what the Chiefs were trying to communicate with the national anthem protest.
“Just whatever everybody believes in. It’s kind of a bad situation going on right now. I really don’t like to talk about it much. We just go out there, we stay united as a team and don’t let that come on the field. We just go out there and play ball. We all love each other in the locker room and we know we’ve got to handle business.”
As the video shows.
