Robert Griffin III is known for being one of the most polarizing NFL commentators around. Many sports fans like his insight into the game of football, and his jokes.
But others don’t like his overall demeanor, which they find cringeworthy. The critics of RG3 think that he plays into too many racial stereotypes, and that he tries to hard to impress white people.
Well yesterday RGII stepped out at an event with his lovely wife Grete. And Black Twitter immediately launched into a tirade. According to Black Twitter, he didn’t just marry a typical White women … he married the Whitest White woman that he could find.

Robert, nicknamed RGIII, is an American former football quarterback who played in the National Football League (NFL) for eight seasons, most notably with the Washington Redskins. He played college football at Baylor University, where he won the Heisman Trophy as a senior, and was selected second overall by the Redskins in the 2012 NFL Draft.
Griffin set league records for the highest rookie passer rating and touchdown–interception ratio, while leading the Redskins to their first division title since 1999. He received Offensive Rookie of the Year and Pro Bowl honors, but was unable to duplicate his success due to a severe knee injury he suffered during the playoffs. Plagued by further injuries and inconsistent performances, Griffin lost his starting position in 2015 to Kirk Cousins, which led to Washington releasing him after the season. Griffin signed with the Cleveland Browns in 2016, but his tenure was also afflicted with injuries, resulting in his release by the season’s end. After spending 2017 as a free agent, he joined the Baltimore Ravens in 2018 and played his last three seasons as a backup.
