Browns RB Isaiah Crowell Shares Disturbing Image Of A Cop’s Throat Being Slit On Instagram

Browns running back Isaiah Crowell got himself into some hot water after he shared a controversial image on Instagram

Following the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, two black men recently shot to to death by police, Crowell shared this graphic image of a police officer having his throat slit open by a hooded figure.

Warning the image below is extremely graphic

Crowell eventually deleted the post and apologized for sharing the image.

Last week was an emotional and difficult week as we saw extreme acts of violence against black men across our country as well as against police officers in Dallas,” Crowell wrote. “I posted an image to Instagram in the midst of that emotion that I shouldn’t have and immediately removed it. It was an extremely poor decision and I apologize for that mistake and for offending people.

“My values and beliefs do not match that image. I am outraged and upset by the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile along with so many others. I am also outraged and saddened by the attacks in Dallas and the deaths of the 5 honorable police officers (Lorne Ahrens, Michael Krol, Michael J. Smith, Brent Thompson and Patrick Zamarripa) who were providing protection while trying to keep peace.

“We have to be better as a society, it’s not about color, it’s about what’s right and wrong. I was very wrong in posting that image. Every single life matters, every death as a result of violence should be treated with equal outrage and penalty.”

Hopefully Crowell is being sincere when he says that he regrets sharing the image because the image itself is pretty disturbing.
