Randy Moss Honors Victims of Police Brutality at NFL Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony

HeadlineAug 06, 2018

Legendary NFL wide receiver Randy Moss paid tribute to African-American men and women killed by the police during the NFL Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Canton, Ohio, Saturday night. He wore a tie stitched with the names Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland, Akai Gurley, Freddie Gray, Walter Scott, Alton Sterling, Trayvon Martin and other victims of police brutality or white vigilante violence. This is NFL star Randy Moss, speaking in an interview after the ceremony.

Randy Moss: “What I wanted to be able to express with my tie is to let these families know that they’re not alone. You know, I’m not here voicing, but by these names on my tie and a big big platform as the Pro Football Hall of Fame, there’s a lot of stuff going on in our country, and I just wanted to let these family members know that they’re not alone.”
