Jackson drew criticism Monday after sharing a fake Adolf Hitler quote that claimed he would start World War III to stop white Jews from oppressing the Black community. Snopes has identified that quote as fake.
The Eagles condemned Jackson’s actions Tuesday, saying Jackson would not only apologize for his actions, but would also use “his platform to take action to promote unity, equality and respect.”
Jackson apologized multiple times Tuesday. Jackson also personally apologized to Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and general manager Howie Roseman. Both Lurie and Roseman are Jewish.
In Jackson’s second public apology, he vowed to educate himself and “work with local and national organizations to be more informed.”
