Confusion After LV Raiders Post ‘I CAN BREATHE’ On Twitter Following Chauvin Verdict

LAS VEGAS, NV. (THECOUNT) — The Las Vegas Raiders posted on Twitter following the guilty verdict of Derek Chauvin on Tuesday, but social media responded by collectively saying, “come again?”

After Chauvin was found guilty in the murder George Floyd, the Raiders’ social media account tweeted out, “I CAN BREATHE,” with the date and the team logo, reported TMZ on Tuesday.

Many people on Twitter were left confused while others were calling the Raider’s tweet an “insensitive post.” The overall reaction on social media has been overwhelmingly negative.

The problem … people feel it’s very tone deaf because Floyd told officers, “I can’t breathe” more than 20 times while being forcefully detained by Chauvin, who at the time was a member of the Minneapolis Police Department.

On top of that … while the verdict is a step in the right direction, there’s clearly so much work to be done.

The reaction to the Raiders’ social media post has been overwhelmingly negative … with THOUSANDS of responses piling in on Twitter.

NBA guard Isaiah Thomas voiced his displeasure … saying, “Y’all can’t be serious.”

NFL receiver Torrey Smith added … “Folks get paid to avoid stupid stuff like this smh delete this @Raiders”

Emmanuel Acho — “I keep double checking to see if the @Raiders verified account actually tweeted this.”

The tweet is still up as of 5 PM PT … but given the backlash, that could change.
