Former Tennessee Titans defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth posted an image on Instagram on Sunday insinuating that Iran should strike the White House if the country chooses to attack the U.S.
Haynesworth, who retired from the NFL in 2011 after playing for several teams, shared an image of an aerial view of the White House and surrounding Washington, D.C., area with the White House circled, indicating a potential target. The surrounding city was labeled as “not affiliated.”
“@Iran if you are going to attack the United States well here is a picture for you! #justtryingtohelp us folks that aren’t starting wars,” he wrote in the accompanying caption.
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill on Haynesworth’s post.
President Trump has feuded publicly with NFL stars including former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who is credited with starting the demonstrations of athletes kneeling during performances of the national anthem to protest police brutality and racism in the U.S.
