When the jury found Derek Chauvin guilty on all three counts for killing George Floyd, the reactions were swift.
Most celebrated, cheering a verdict that was anxiously awaited. Some exhaled and succumbed to their emotions. Others took to social media to sprout their ignorant, racist venom. Yet no matter the words of the trolls, the day would not be tarnished for everyone who waited so long for the legal system to finally punish law enforcement.
In the world of sports, the reactions were overwhelmingly positive. But some were woefully frustrating, limited, and embarrassing. None more so than the tweet by the Las Vegas Raiders.
