“I am so ashamed and disgusted with myself,” Cooper said on Twitter. “I want to apologize. I have been offensive. I have apologized to my coach, Jeffrey Lurie, Howie Roseman, and my teammates. I owe an apology to the fans and to this community. I am so ashamed, but there are no excuses. What I did was wrong and I will accept the consequences.”
