Riley Cooper, red-eyed and shaken, told reporters his parents in Florida are "very disappointed" in him Wednesday evening, after a video surfaced of Cooper vowing to "fight every N----- here" at a June 8 Kenny Chesney concert.
Cooper, who earlier apologized on Twitter, said he has been fined "a substantial amount" by the team. It is unclear if there will be league discipline. He characterized himself as "extremely sorry, extremely embarrassed, extremely hurt by my actions."
Cooper said the confrontation recorded on camera, which surfaced Wednesday afternoon on the Crossing Broad web site and was quickly picked up by Deadspin, ocurred between Cooper and an African-American security guard.
Cooper said he has not spoken with his teammates yet.
