Riley Cooper Makes Every Country Music Fan Look Bad

: "I will fight every n***** here."
Who said it: Riley Cooper

Fair or not, country music fans get a pretty bad rap as it is when it comes to allegations of racism, so they couldn't have been too happy when the Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver was videotaped dropping the n-word at a Kenny Chesney concert this past summer. Using the word during an altercation with the show's bouncers after he attempted to go backstage, Cooper apologized profusely when video footage of the incident dropped, and was fined for an undisclosed amount by the Eagles. Just a quick tip to Cooper: When you're playing wide receiver in a league that's primarily African-American, you probably don't want to be too liberal with the racial slurs. Just something to keep in mind.
