Javon Kinlaw is a talented defensive tackle who impressed a lot of people during his college football days at South Carolina. Kinlaw was born in Trinidad and Tobago but he migrated with his mother and siblings to Washington.
The Trinidadian footballer actually spent a part of his childhood homeless. He was roped in by the San Francisco 49ers in the first round of the 2020 Draft. The 6 feet 5 inches tall DE signed a 4-year contract with the San Francisco-based franchise back in June 2020.
“You like to bully people on the internet”: Javon Kinlaw to Grant Cohn
However, Kinlaw recently got himself involved in a major controversy. During a conversation with a Sports Illustrated reporter, Kinlaw lost his cool and said a few things which not many people are approving of. “Somebody’s gotta press you, and it’s gotta be me,” Kinlaw said, as reported by the New York Post.
“You like to come on here and try to bully people on the internet, but when I come up on you and try to press you in f*cking person, you f*cking shaking like a coward, voice lighter than my f*cking baby,” the DE told Grant Cohn.
Cohn then replied by asking, “Do you think I’m scared of you, Javon?” Post that, Kinlaw said, “I don’t give a f*ck if you are or not, all I know is when I walked up on you your f*cking body temperature was as cold as ice.” Without a doubt, all this blew way out of proportion.
As it turns out, Cohn has been very critical about Kinlaw being roped in by the 49ers in the past. As per New York Post, Kinlaw even knocked a hat off Cohn’s head during a practice session.
