Cowboys owner Jerry Jones appeared in a bizarre video making the rounds on the Internet in which he made what can be interpreted as either a racially charged, or just very stupid, comment.
The video was reportedly taken in 2013 at a wedding at the Warwick Melrose Hotel in Dallas. Jones, with his jacket slung over his shoulder, is asked if he has a message for the special couple.
“Jennifer, congratulations on the wedding,” he said. “Now, you know he’s with a black girl tonight, don’t you?”
He laughs after making the weird comment, and then playfully acknowledges another apparent partygoer, who is black.

“That comment was inappropriate,” Jones said in a statement Friday, according to the Dallas Morning News’ David Moore. “It’s not who I am, and I’m sorry.”
The wedding video was first published online by the site theBlast.com, which reports the video was submitted by a tipster. When reached for comment by the site, a source reportedly said “F –k Jerry Jones!”
Judging by what Jones has been up to the last month, the source could be any number of people who have it out for him.
