HOUSTON (FOX 26) - More reaction from a racist Facebook post that a Texas school superintendent wrote. That comment in reference to Texans' quarterback DeShaun Watson.
Watson addressed the media today as Texans' coach Bill O'Brien responded to the post.
"I really don't want to waste a lot of time responding to outdated, inaccurate, ignorant, idiotic statements," said O'Brien. "In this day and age, it's amazing that that BS exists, but it does. But we're moving forward. But our fans, they love DeShaun and we're really concentrating on the Giants, but I wasted about a minute and a half responding to that BS.
Watson asked how he felt about the post.
"That's on him," said DeShaun Watson. "May peace be with him. I worry about me. I'm not worried what he had to say."
The comment, in part, saying "you can't count on a black quarterback."
"I'm all about love," said Watson. "Don't focus on that. I love all people."
Onalaska Independent School District superintendent Lynn Redden first saying he meant to send the comment as a private message. Texans Cornerback Jonathan Joseph responding to that claim
"The apology wasn't sincere when YOU make a comment like you thought it was a private message," said Joseph. "That makes you look even more silly than the whole statement itself."
Texans defensive end JJ Watt agreeing with what his teammates and Coach O'Brien had to say, throwing his trust and support behind Watson.
"I don't think that it deserves any attention from any of us," said Watt. "It's a very ignorant comment that doesn't deserve anymore play than what it should get. I mean, it's very unfortunate, but I trust him. I trust him a whole lot. We all trust him a whole lot."
As far as a response from Redden, who made the post, he's remained mostly quiet. Onalaska ISD saying appropriate action will be taken with a special meeting still scheduled for Saturday morning to talk about Redden's contract.
