All of America has stayed gripped by the unfathomably horrifying alt right protests, ensuing counter-protests, and terroristic violence that has overtaken the city of Charlottesville, Virginia this weekend.
And rather than stay silent, plenty have attempted to vocalize exactly how the nearly foreign events are affecting them.
America's athletes certainly were among the vocal as well, including those who once played at the University of Virginia and called the once-sleepy hamlet home.
Former 'Hoos pitcher Brandon Waddell offered calming words to the disgusted masses.
Sad, sad day in the city of Charlottesville. Such a great place has been infiltrated with hate. For those that are there, please stay safe.— Brandon Waddell (@BWaddell20) August 12, 2017
NFL star Chris Long, who also spent plenty of time starring in C'Ville, brought about a similar sentiment.
Hate these images... This isn't CVille.... The tantrum will be over soon #insecurity— Chris Long (@JOEL9ONE) August 12, 2017
All that any of us want is for this to be over.
But Long spent plenty of time deflecting some true nonsense from his mentions in the aftermath.
Love people explaining to a 24 year CVille resident who and who isn't from out of town.— Chris Long (@JOEL9ONE) August 12, 2017
UVA's current starting quarterback attempted to be as peaceful and biblical with his discourse as possible.
Plenty of other athletes chimed in, however.
Enes Kanter, no stranger to violence in his native Turkey, and detained just a few short months ago, offered up a symbol that's had plenty of alt right folks triggered in recent days.
Chalk Jeremy Lin up as another professional NBA player disgusted by what he's seeing.
#Charlottesville makes me sick...what world are we living in rn?!?— Jeremy Lin (@JLin7) August 12, 2017
Even some sports franchises were forced to speak out. Credit the Detroit Red Wings, who saw their logo being desecrated in the protest, and were certainly more forceful in condemning white supremacy than the President.
Good look for the Wings, who are doing their best not to be tainted by the proceedings.
Dodgers beat writer Andy McCullough kept it quite simple.
So, this is a bad day.— Andy McCullough (@McCulloughTimes) August 12, 2017
We hope dearly this will be the last time we're able to present a post like this surrounding an unconscionable American tragedy, but we're well aware it will not be.
