A Pennsylvania fire chief is apologizing for calling Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin a “no good nigger.” Tomlin and the bulk of his team refused to take the field during Sunday’s game while the national anthem was being performed. The decision was to counter extremely offensive remarks made by Donald Trump on Friday.
Paul Smith, the chief of the volunteer fire department in Cecil Township, posted on Facebook that the Super Bowl winning coach “just added himself to the list of no-good n*ggers” by partaking in a show of solidarity with his team.
After being blasted for his disgusting remarks, Smith apologized. “I am embarrassed at this,” he said. “I want to apologize. I was frustrated and angry at the Steelers not standing [for] the anthem. This had nothing to do with my Fire Department. I regret what I said.”
