On Wednesday, Kenny Stills became the topic of conversation around the NFL for criticizing Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross. The former Oklahoma wide receiver shared his displeasure with the team’s owner on Twitter.
The reason that Stills took a few shots at Ross is because he’s hosting a fundraiser for President Trump.
Ross has a nonprofit with a mission statement that says “We are a national nonprofit that educates and empowers the sports community to eliminate racial discrimination, champion social justice and improve race relations.”
Stills told the Miami Herald that he’s received “five to 10” death threats on social media for criticizing Ross.
Despite all the criticism that Stills took from people on social media, he didn’t change his stance on the Dolphins owner.
He had additional comments to share to the public after the team’s preseason game on Thursday.
From the Miami Herald:
“If you’re going to associate with bad people, then people are going to know about it,” Stills told reporters after the Dolphins’ preseason game against the Falcons. “I think there’s ways you can support candidates without it being so public and without it being at your personal, private residence. I put it out there so everybody could see it.”
Regardless of his frustration with Miami’s owner, Stills has made it known that he wants to remain with the team.
