Isaiah Crowell donating first game check to Dallas police organization
After posting a graphic photo of an officer getting his throat slit on social media, Browns running back Isaiah Crowell has pledged to donate his first game check this season to Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation.
In a video sent to TMZ, Crowell revealed his plans to contribute to the charity and doubled-down on the apology he gave Tuesday.
“By posting that picture, I became part of the problem,” Crowell said. “I don’t want to be part of the problem, I want to be part of the solution. And to back that up, my first game check is going to the Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation. Also, I’m committed to doing whatever I can to create open dialogue between my communities and the police who serve us.”
The Browns called Crowell’s deleted post “extremely disturbing.”
Crowell, 23, was one of many athletes to react to the violence that dominated headlines last week.
