DeAngelo Williams’s daughters wear pink in honor of grandma

Sunday November 1st, 2015

Pittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams was told by the NFL he could not wear pink year-round to honor his mother and aunts who died of breast cancer. Williams was also fined by the NFL for writing messages on his eye black.

Although the NFL has stopped Williams from honoring the breast cancer victims in his life, they can’t stop Williams’ daughters.

Williams’ daughters appeared in a photo Sunday wearing black shirts with pink No. 34s on the back, their father’s number. The two were seen holding a sign that read, “We wear pink because our daddy is not allowed,” on one side, and “The NFL cannot fine us,” on the other. 

The NFL has cracked down on violations of its uniform policy. Williams’s teammate Cameron Heyward was also fined for writing messages in honor of his late father on his eye black. Another Steeler, William Gay, was fined for wearing purple cleats in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
