Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins has been accused of recklessly driving through a pro-Trump caravan and flipping people off. The incident took place on Sunday afternoon as he made his way to play on Sunday Night Football.
Hopkins was driving a black Ferrari and according to those in the caravan, he swerved through the caravan flipping people off. Pitures of Hopkins holding both of his middle fingers up have surfaced on social media.
From AZ Central:
People participating in a caravan of hundreds of vehicles circling Valley highways as a parade of sorts for President Donald Trump say Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins swerved through the caravan and flipped people off.
People who said they were in the caravan posted photos on Twitter of Hopkins giving the middle finger while driving a Ferrari convertible around 1:30 p.m. In the images, he is wearing a distinctive shirt that he was seen wearing when he arrived at State Farm Stadium later that afternoon.
No confirmation from @Arizona_DPS about the rumor DeAndre Hopkins was swerving or pulled over for driving through a "caravan" of Trump supporters.
The middle finger rumors are verified by this picture though. https://t.co/ipdIKC3qXj

Politics make people lose their damn minds sometimes. This move isn't likely to make Hopkins any new fans among Trump supporters, a fact he's probably devastated by.
The encounter with the caravan didn't throw Hopkins off his game. He had a big game pulling in 10 catches for 103 yards during the Arizona's overtime win over the Seahawks.
