Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Westernjournal.com: “NFL Coach Jon Gruden Pressured Into Resigning After Years-Old Private Emails Come to Light”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Highlighting the extent to which cancel culture ensures that private opinions have public consequences, Las Vegas Raiders head coach Jon Gruden resigned late Monday after old emails were made public.

The emails contained slurs that mocked the masculinity of multiple NFL figures, including Commissioner Roger Goodell; criticized having women as referees; and railed against the league for pressuring a team to draft an openly gay player, according to The New York Times.

“I have resigned as Head Coach of the Las Vegas Raiders,” Gruden said in a statement released by the team.

“I love the Raiders and do not want to be a distraction. Thank you to all the players, coaches, staff, and fans of Raider Nation. I’m sorry, I never meant to hurt anyone.”
