Miko Grimes delves into antisemitism and trutherism

Miko Grimes doing a thing on Twitter is usually not worth a post, even if she’s the wife of Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Brent Grimes and a permanent lightning rod. She posts a lot of stuff, and much of it may be rude, but it is not particularly wrong or noteworthy. Her dunking on some rude dudes on Twitter is one thing, but it’s another when she delves into antisemitism and trutherism, as she did today.

That tweet reads “Gotta respect ross for keeping his jew buddies employed but did he not see how tannenbaum put the jets in the dumpster w/that sanchez deal?”, in case it gets deleted. ‘Ross’ references Stephen Ross, the owner of the Dolphins. It’s a plainly antisemitic tweet, and she followed it up with what appears to be some 9/11 trutherism after she was called out for said antisemitism.

This is an ugly look for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who haven’t commented yet. A statement denouncing her Tweets would be a good move, given that she is tangentially connected to the team. But ultimately, Miko Grimes is not a Bucs employee, and this has very little to do with her husband’s ability to do his job. It may be ugly, but Tampa Bay isn’t about to say goodbye to someone who’s contract they guaranteed for the year, just because their spouse says ridiculous and hateful things on Twitter.
