The curse of Miko Grimes strikes again, unintentionally trying to derail her husband’s (Brent Grimes) career, this time with an anti semitic tweet against Miami Dolphins owner, Stephen Ross, and executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum, both Jewish.
Think of her as Ayesha Curry, only with a nasty edge. Mrs. Grimes has said stuff over the years, or to be more accurate Tweeted stuff, that put the wrong kind of spotlight on her husband, a pretty good cornerback, making the Pro Bowl four times in his career (including the last three), recently signing a two-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after the Dolphins cut him for refusing to restructure his contract.
Remember all the s*** Mrs. Curry got for making some Tweets during the NBA finals that kinda backfired? Well, Miko Grimes doesn’t get that kind of attention because her husband isn’t an MVP, but she does plenty of damage, even if bosses usually know that there’s a good chance it has nothing to do with him. Who knows, maybe he uses her to vent his frustrations in a way that doesn’t put him in hot water, although it does, in a way.
So the latest pearls of wisdom from Miko Grimes? A little bit of Jewish slander, which she obviously claims isn’t racism, but simply stating the facts.
Gotta respect ross for keeping his jew buddies employed but did he not see how tannenbaum put the jets in the dumpster w/that sanchez deal?

If you go down the Tweet thread with responses she gives to people trying to point out that she might be saying something a little bit wrong, you’re in for a mess. And her response to ESPN, trying to clarify what she meant, makes her look even worse.
When I wrote ‘jew buddies’ I was speaking about how a lot of communities will hire their ‘own people’ for jobs before others. That’s a fact! Why people find facts offensive is strange to me. And now im a racist? Lmao! How? If what I said is racist or anti-Semitic, why isn’t it also racist to only hire their own? America is just an easily offended, fake reacting, bunch of cry baby [expletive]s! Anyone that thinks I’m a racist needs to build a [expletive] bridge and get over it. I’m not a racist, I’m a realist.
Funny thing. The owners of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers? Jewish. Malcolm Glazer (died in 2014), who was the owner of the Buccaneers before the business moved on to his family, was born in Rochester, New York, the fifth of seven children of Lithuanian Jewish immigrants. The Bucs PR staff are aware of the tweet. Miko Grimes usually tweeted about how bad Ryan Tannehill is when Brent was playing for the Dolphins. Now, still attacking the Dolphins, she shows how little she knows what being antisemitic is, offending her husband’s new bosses.
