From the Dallas Morning News’ Calvin Watkins (h/t to David Roth, Brendan Flynn) :
Dallas Cowboys tight end Martellus Bennett released a song on YouTube that uses derogatory terms to describe African-Americans and gays.
Bennett, who is African-American, wears a white, autographed Cowboys helmet during the video, which lasts almost three minutes.
“I shouldn’t cuss that much,” Bennett said. “I’ve been listening to [rapper] Too Short too much.”
Dessie Brown Jr., Bennett’s friend, released the video to select media members and asked that they watch and also listen to a rap song on Bennett’s MySpace page. In an e-mail, Brown wrote, “excuse the language on both.”
