The franchise (Philadelphia Eagles) have also responded toward the anti-Semitic post. They said in a statement that Jacksons Post has no place in our society. Further in the statement, they said “We have spoken with DeSean Jackson about his social media posts, Regardless of his intentions, the messages he shared were offensive, harmful, and absolutely appalling. They have no place in our society and are not condoned or supported in any way by the organization”. Several think tanks feel that Eagles should suspend DeSean Jackson.

2003 NBA Champion posted a video on his own Instagram account to tell people that DeSean was just telling the truth. Stephen said “I just read a statement that the Philadelphia Eagles posted regarding DeSean Jackson’s comments. He was trying to educate people, educate himself, and he’s speaking the truth. Right? He’s speaking the truth. He doesn’t hate anybody but he’s speaking the truth of what he knows and trying to educate others. But y’all don’t want him to educate ourselves”

Fans were also quick enough to spot that Kevin Durant has also liked DeSean’s post and are skeptical about it.
DeSean may have to suffer major consequences as some of the top executives in Philadelphia Eagles are from Jewish Community.
