Lil Wayne is throwing shots at Philadelphia Eagles' wide receiver Riley Cooper for racial slurs he made. "Riley Cooper kan suk my ...." Weezy tweeted this week.
Cooper was caught on tape during a Kenny Chesney concert saying, "I will jump that fence and fight every n----r here!" Allegedly, Cooper was reacting to a black security guard who would not allow him backstage.

Since the scandal, Cooper was excused from NFL activities and fined, reports NFL.com. He is seeking counseling too. "Right now, I think it's important for me to take some time to reflect on this situation," Cooper said in a statement released by the team. "The organization and my teammates have been extremely supportive, but I also realize that there are people who will have a tough time forgiving me for what I've done. The best thing for me, and for the team, is to step away for a period of time. "
"That's no excuse for what I said. I don't use that term," Cooper said afterwards per ESPN. "I was raised better than that. I have a great mom and dad, and they're disgusted with my actions."
Lil Wayne has been rather vocal when it comes to sports. The rapper has a blog on ESPN and has appeared on the channel several times as a talking head.
