Brittany Brees Delivers Heartfelt Apology On Instagram: ‘WE ARE THE PROBLEM’
We've heard multiple apologies from New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and now his wife is issuing her own personal apology.
Brees apologized to teammates, fans, and others who ripped him over he made comments that accused NFL players who kneel of "disrespecting the flag." After receiving immediate backlash, Drew apologized twice in as many days for his insensitive words.
Brees even responded directly to Donald Trump after the President tweeted that he should have never apologized, telling Trump the "protests were not about the flag."
On Saturday, Brittany Brees issued her own statement.
Brittany vowed to "do better" as she apologized for not listening and boldly exclaimed, "WE ARE THE PROBLEM." She added that she has educated her kids about "the horrors of slavery" but that it was "not enough." Brees promised that she would "listen and do better."
Personally, I believe Drew and Brittany to be sincere—and not because of how much money they've spent or the work they've done in their community. For me, the measure of Drew's character has always been his accountability, on and off the field.
I'm here for it.
