NFL in the heat for Violence Against Women

Kareem Hunt

 

Last week, a disturbing video was released that showed an NFL running back shoving and kicking a woman in a hotel. This rising NFL star was Kareem Hunt of the Kansas City Chiefs. The NFL has known about this incident for nine months but did not kick Hunt off the team until this video hit the media last week.

The NFL has put Kareem Hunt on the commissioner's exempt list, which means he can't practice or play for any team until the NFL finishes its investigation. Many are questioning whether the NFL will take a stand against violence against women, as they have had a poor track record with this issue.
