BALTIC, Conn. (CBSNewYork) — Not excited about getting right into a dialogue about race, Giants large receiver Brandon Marshall stormed away from a Boston radio interview Thursday.
Marshall was a visitor on WEEI’s “Kirk & Callahan” present, which was broadcast from Johnny Damon’s movie star golf event at Mohegan Solar in Baltic, Connecticut.
The hosts tried to ask Marshall about feedback he made in 2015 after Tom Brady’s Deflategate suspension was overturned. On Showtime’s “Contained in the NFL,” Marshall stated then: “There are a number of gamers on the market that consider that white gamers, particularly on the quarterback place, are handled in another way.”
However on Thursday, Marshall stated: “I’m not moving into the race card with you guys, so if that’s what you guys need to do, then you possibly can go there. However black guys in America get handled in a different way, interval. So I’ll simply say that.”
The hosts then pressed Marshall, who joins the Giants this season after spending the previous two years with the Jets, about whether or not he believes black athletes are handled in another way when disciplined by leagues.
“We executed with this interview? Can I get off of this interview?” Marshall requested somebody close by earlier than saying, “All proper. I’m achieved with you guys.

“Change the topic or I’m getting off, I’m dropping the mic.”
Earlier than the hosts might ask their subsequent query, Marshall stated: “I’m completed with you guys. Bye.”
Seconds later, after Marshall had walked away from the desk, one of many hosts stated, “And he throws espresso on us.”
