Take off the next few plays and just stop talking, Riley.
Philadelphia, PA – Chip Kelly decried any and all defenses of him by Riley Cooper in the past and near future, after the casually racist wide receiver spoke highly of him in an interview with the Delco Times.
“It’s definitely difficult and upsetting for sure,” Cooper said to Bob Grotz. “I know (Kelly is) not like that.”
Kelly visibly shuddered upon hearing the quote. Kelly has been defending himself against claims of racism by former Eagles running back Lesean McCoy.
“Riley is just trying to help, I know, but please, for the love of god, do not say nice things about me in public anymore. My goodness you are not helping at all,” Kelly said.
“Good god, Riley, just shut your mouth, please.”
Kelly doubled down on his comments and said Cooper was the last person in the world who should be coming to his defense.
“It’s like the KKK coming to the defense of Mark Fuhrman. It’s just not going to help anything,” Kelly said. “You’re not helping anyone, Riley.”
As of press time, Kelly was seen frantically running towards the Eagles media tent as several national media cameras were huddling around Cooper.
