NFL Star Cancels Charity Golf Tournament At Donald Trump Course

One of the NFL’s best defensive backs was set to have a charity golf tournament at Donald Trump’s golf course in Florida.

However, the charity event has since been canceled, due to backlash.

Bills safety Jordan Poyer was set to hold the tournament at Trump National Doral Miami on July 10.

“In a lengthy Instagram video, Poyer stated that he decided to cancel the event after multiple golfers and sponsors withdrew. According to the Buffalo News, the main catalyst for the cancellation was the withdrawal of ECMC, a foundation that Poyer named as a sponsor but a spokesperson described as just a beneficiary,” Fan Nation wrote.

Poyer shared a lengthy statement on Instagram.

“I regret to inform you that my annual Golf Charity Event in South Florida, originally scheduled for July 10th at the Blue Monster at Trump National in Doral, has been rescheduled for next year,” Poyer wrote on Instagram. “Unfortunately, the location of the event led to a few sponsors and golfers withdrawing at the last minute due to external pressures. While it’s disappointing, I respect their decision. Nevertheless, we will persevere. Next offseason, we will host this event with unwavering dedication, ensuring that it remains free from any external distractions.”

Poyer’s reps have also released a statement.

“Unfortunately we were sadly surprised by negative comments by some individuals trying to make this a political battle and divide our community,” Avalon Sports said. “We condemn any type of violence and stand by Jordan as he continues to work to make a positive impact and be a role model for our community.”
