After a video surfaced online from Philly sports blog Crossing Broad showing Eagles’ wide receiver Riley Cooper telling a group of friends at a Kenny Chesney concert in June: “I will jump that fence and fight every [n-word] in here, bro” (watch the video above), the NFL star has issued a string of apologies via Twitter.

Cooper is seen in the video with fellow Eagle Jason Kelce as well as a bunch of other people. At that show at Lincoln Financial Field, Cooper and his fellow Eagles, including Coach Chip Kelly, joined Kenny Chesney on stage for a rendition of the song “Boys of the Fall.”

The video was a follow-up to one published by Crossing Broad which appeared to show Cooper fighting on the same night:
