Buffalo Bills quarterback Jake Fromm confirms that screenshots of racist text messages he allegedly sent are authentic.
The rookie apologized on Thursday (June 4) after the texts in which he wrote that "only elite whites" should be able to buy weapons. The context of the conversation was not clear.
"Guns are good … they only make them very expensive so that only white elite people can get them, haha," he said in the text messages.
"I spoke to my teammates and coaches in a team meeting today and I hope they see that this incident is not representative of who I am," said Fromm.

"We don't tolerate what he said," said the team. "Jake was honest and open to text exchange."
