Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper has issued an apology via Twitter for using a racial slur during a Kenny Chesney concert in June. Video of Cooper's outburst was obtained by Philadelphia blog Crossing Broad.

Here's a link to the video of the incident. (Warning: Video contains explicit language.)

During the concert, Cooper is seen on the video pointing to the crowd saying, “I will jump that fence and fight every [expletive] here.”

Cooper attended the June 9 concert at Lincoln Financial Field along with several Eagles teammates and coach Chip Kelly, who Chesney invited onstage to help sing "Boys of Fall."
