Ex-Seahawks RB Adrian Peterson calls out Damar Hamlin for wearing “Blasphemous” jacket at Super Bowl LVII

Adrian Peterson, who is now a free agent, went after Damar Hamlin for wearing a Takashi Murakami work named “Travis Jesus” to the Super Bowl, which included a rendition of the crucifix on the back of the jacket.

Adrian Petersen, a devoted Christian, was offended by Hamlin’s choice of attire and stated bluntly, “You should be thanking God, son! This is Blasphemy!! We all fall short but cmon man! I find this disrespectful!! #grateful #goddid”

After friends suggested Peterson should talk to Hamlin, things quickly changed, according to TMZ, Peterson wrote “So I spoke with [Damar], and we were able to discuss our thoughts as men. I want to be clear, I’m the last person to judge anyone, and that was never my intention.”

He continued, “However, I do feel as if the jacket was disrespectful and it was something that I needed to share. I do realize everyone makes mistakes and falls short at times, so again, my intention was never to judge, just to share my opinion.”

Peterson also had a public message for the Bills player”Damar, I have respect and love for you and I wish you nothing but the best, but I just can’t rock with that jacket. I feel like there are a lot of people, young and old, looking up to you, and with power and influence comes great responsibility. I apologize for offending you.”

Adrian Peterson wrote directly about Hamlin. Peterson then ended his message with a peace offering, as he realized it was completely needless to create a fuss and be on the wrong side of the narrative. “After speaking with Damar, I have an understanding that it didn’t come from a place of ill intent!” he stated.

Peterson thought Hamlin, the Bills safety who had a very public cardiac arrest on the field against the Bengals in Week 17, was disrespecting God with the jacket.

About six weeks after his cardiac arrest incident, Hamlin said that he still hopes to play football again in the future. “Eventually. That’s always the goal, like I said, as a competitor, you know, I’m trying to do things to keep advancing my situation,” Hamlin said Sunday night. “But I’m allowing that to be in God’s hands. I’m just thankful he gave me a second chance.”

Throughout his recovery, Hamlin has not shied away from sharing his faith, thanking God several times until appearing publicly for the first time recently.
