Ex-NFL star Jack Brewer threatens to sue MSNBC host Joy Reid over CHILD ABUSE remark
Joy Ann Reid, an MSNBC host, might be sued after she sent out a tweet suggesting a former black NFL star was promoting "child abuse" when his after-school club attended the signing of an anti-critical race theory bill in Florida.
Jack Brewer, a former NFL player, demanded Reid to issue an apology for the remark she made that misinterpreted his club's "mis-use of Black boys is tantamount to child abuse". If not, she could be looking at a defamation case in her name.
On Monday, April 25, Brewer told The Washington Examiner, "She has completely humiliated my kids and my program. It's just so hurtful, and she needs to be held accountable. She does it so often. And you know, her words and the way that she comes across to black America leaves a stain on all of us. ... I won't put up with it when it comes to my kids."
Brewer clearly told the newspaper that he will send Reid a letter requesting her to issue an apology. In case, she fails to do so within 24 hours, Brewer will pursue legal action. In addition to specifics regarding damages, Brewer's legal team is working towards finalizing details pertaining to the suit.
Reid's tweet read, "This mis-use of Black boys is tantamount to child abuse. I would really like to hear the back-story on who these kids were and how they wound up at a DeSantis event. Given how anti-Black DeSantis is, using Black children this way is extra sick."

Last Friday, April 22, Florida GOP Governor Ron DeSantis signed the Stop WOKE Act into law, placed restrictions on training and credentials courses in schools, corporations, and other educational institutes that claim "an individual's moral character or status as either privileged or oppressed is necessarily determined by his or her race, color, sex, or national origin." Children from the Jack Brewer Foundations' after-school club were photographed holding up signboards that signified opposition to CRT.
Brewer is known to publicly oppose CRT. He explained that the mission of the American Heroes program is to promote Christian leadership among the youth in addition to offering academic mentorship. He made note of the fact that parents who have their children enrolled in his program are being provided resources that address the concerns surrounding CRT (critical race theory).
Brewer said, "I'm a vocal advocate against CRT — anything that teaches kids anti-Christ rhetoric and teaches kids to hate and to see each other based on the color of their skin. I have students in my program who have gone to school and been told that they can't accomplish something because of the color of [their] skin."
Brewer explained how these children face "hate and resentment and bitterness toward people that she knows nothing about."
Jane Halbritter, whose nephews were photographed, said, "'I mean, she's painting these kids like they're just little black boys that don't know anything and could be exploited like they don't even have their own minds. And I don't see her doing it with white kids."
Reid, on the other hand, said, "That sure looks like T Willard Fair in the background. But I've been told by a trusted source that these were not Miami Urban League kids, standing there looking like they were at the dentist. Any Florida journalists have insight into this?"
