NFL star Sauce Gardner ‘said Jews run the world in a good way’, says his livestream host

Adin Ross defended the American football star over his controversial comments


Social media influencer Adin Ross has defended NFL football star Sauce Gardner over controversial comments about Jews, saying the New York Jets defender “said Jews run the world in a good way”.

During a live-streamed conversation, Ross, who is Jewish, had told Gardner he had bought a Tesla CyberTruck from a Jewish man. In an off-the-cuff response, Gardner said: "You all run the world."

Following uproar on social media, Gardner wrote: “I love all people. While my intentions were positive, I just learned that people use those exact words I shared for hate towards Jewish people. That is not what I am about and I appreciate those who took the time to educate me on that fact."

Ross wrote in a reply to Gardner: "Bro I’m Jewish. You did and said nothing wrong you said Jews run the world in a good way which is true, I said you were fine so ima defend you. Don’t give in, f*** these fake woke ppl."

The star defensive player is entering his third season in New York. He was an All-Pro and Pro Bowler in his first two years with the Jets.

In a clip from the stream that went viral, Ross can first be heard saying that he had been sold an item by a Jew because he was Jewish.

“Imma be honest, like no funny weird s**t,” Gardner then tells him. “Y'all run the world.”

After drawing laughter in the room, the NFL star adds: “They got so much motion throughout the whole world. Y'all gotta see how they be walking in the airport.”

The comment provoked a backlash on social media. “I no longer like Sauce Gardner,” wrote one user on X.

Another posted: “Sauce Gardner plays for NY jets brothaaaaa don’t be saying that s**t”.
