Weekend details surfaced and revealed how serious of a stunt Green-Beckham tried to pull off.
Players across the league took part in the My Cause, My Cleats campaign in Week 13 in which they wore designer cleats that helped promote charities and social issues that they care about. Green-Beckham wore a pair of cleats from Kanye West’s Yeezy brand and said they were in the name of “the Yeezy Foundation,” which apparently does not exist. (ESPN)
The NFL hit Dorial with a $6,000-plus fine for wearing the Yeezy cleats.
Green-Beckham has been fined $6,076 for wearing the cleats, and now we face the obvious question: What initiatives would The Yeezy Foundation, if it were an actual charitable organization, be involved in? (Fox Sports)
Recently, NFL superstar DeAndre Hopkins said he would rock the banned cleats if rap star Kanye West paid his fines.
