Eagles’ DeSean Jackson accepts an invite to visit Auschwitz
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson made headlines last week on social media, sharing hateful messages and anti-Semitic beliefs that drew ire from fans, followers, and more. Several NFL players commented on the unexpected hate coming from Jackson, and the three-time Pro Bowl wideout later apologized along with accepting terms of a punishment handed down by his team.
On Monday, DeSean Jackson has reportedly accepted an invitation to reflect on the hatred his spread and learn more about the most horrific even in the history of the Jewish people: the Holocaust. Jackson will visit Auschwitz, the infamous concentration camp in then-German-occupied Poland (via ESPN).
