SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - Former University of Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm has issued an apology after a controversial message began circulating online.
Fromm admitted in his apology post that he did send the message that used the phrase “elite white people” when talking about guns.
The image circulating online shows messages about raising the price of guns and suppressors so only “elite white people” could afford them.
Below is Fromm’s apology:
Fromm was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the 2020 NFL Draft. The Bills released a statement regarding Fromm’s comments.
“Earlier today, we became aware of comments made in a text message conversation involving Jake Fromm in 2019. He was wrong and he admitted it to us. We don’t condone what he said. Jake was honest and forthcoming to us about the text exchange. He asked for an opportunity to address and apologize [to] his teammates and coaches today in a team meeting, which he did. We will continue to work with Jake on the responsibilities of being a Buffalo Bill on and off the field.”
