Yannick Ngakoue accuses Richie Incognito of using racial slurs during playoff game

NFL: Houston Texans at Jacksonville Jaguars Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue tweets often during the season — typically to celebrate victories or to pump up the city or fellow teammates. But shortly after defeating the Buffalo Bills in a Wild Card playoff game, he accused opposing guard Richie Incognito of using racial slurs toward him during the game.

“Great win today!,” Ngakoue tweeted. “And 64, you goin have to come harder than some weak racist slurs. I’m proud of my African heritage, as are 70% of the other Black players in this league. #Iaintjonathanmartin!”

Ngakoue is of course referring to Incognito, who wears No. 64 for the Bills and his hashtag refers to Jonathan Martin, the player Incognito bullied in 2013 when both were members of the Miami Dolphins, which coincidentally also included racial slurs, such as allegedly calling Martin a “half-[racial slur]” among other things.

For what it’s worth, I believe Yannick. He has no reason to lie and Incognito has a history of this kind of stuff. If you need proof to stand behind Yannick’s accusation, I would ask why you’re more willing to give a self-proclaimed racist and all around garbage can of a person the benefit of the doubt over Ngakoue.
