November 15, 2019


A HUGE STORY WE JUST BROKE ON “TMZ” SPORTS ABOUT AN NFL SUPERSTAR. SOME OF THIS IS GOING TO SOUND A LITTLE FAMILIAR. GOES TO GO TO SOUND LIKE RAY RICE. IT IS SURVEILLANCE VIDEO OF KANSAS CITY CHIEFS STAR KAREEM HUNT STRIKING A WOMAN DURING A DISPUTE IN A HOTEL. THIS HAPPENED BACK IN FEBRUARY, AND “TMZ” SPORTS DID THAT STORY. POLICE WERE CALLED. WE KNEW THERE WAS SURVEILLANCE FOOTAGE BASEBALL. “TMZ” SPORTS JUST OBTAINED. THERE IT IS. KAREEM HUNT IS THE MAN THERE WITH A CHAIN ON. HE STRIKES THIS WOMAN. SHE COMES BACK AT HIM, AND IT GETS — HOW DO I SAY THIS? IT SEEMS LIKE HE HAS A DISREGARD FOR HER AS A HUMAN BEING. VAN: RIGHT THERE, SOMEBODY ELSE GETS PUSHED INTO HER. PROBABLY THE MOST SHOCKING THINGS HAPPENS LATER ON WHEN HE KICKS HER WHILE SHE IS ON THE GROUND. IT LOOKS PRETTY BAD FOR KAREEM HUNT RIGHT NOW. CHARLES: THE BIG QUESTION THAT “TMZ” SPORTS IS WORKING ON RIGHT NOW IS WHAT HAS THE NFL OR THE KANSAS CITY CHIEFS DONE ABOUT THIS? UP TO THIS POINT, WE KNEW ABOUT THE ALLEGATIONS — VAN: SHE IS GOING TO FALL BACK DOWN HERE AND THEN YOU SEE THE KICK. THIS HAPPENED IN FEBRUARY IN A HOTEL IN CLEVELAND, OHIO. COPS RESPONDED TO THIS, BUT DIDN’T CHARGE ANYBODY WITH A CRIME. IF YOU WATCH THE FULL RAW VIDEO WHICH YOU CAN SEE ON “TMZ” SPORTS.COM, IT STARTS WITH KAREEM HUNT, WHO IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST STARS IN THE NFL. HE WAS THE RUSHERER LAST YEAR. HE IS ON THE CHIEFS, A KEY PART OF THAT TEAM. HE IS A RISING SUPERSTAR. HE WAS INVOLVED IN A SITUATION WHERE COPS INVESTIGATED. THEY SAW THIS VIDEO. YOU CAN SEE KAREEM THROWS THE FIRST CHOATE. HE SHOVES THIS WOMAN, AND THEN IT ESCALATES AT A POINT BEFORE HE KICKS HER, HE BULL RUSHES AT HER AND RUNS OVER A MALE ASSOCIATE AND THE WOMAN. THEY BOTH GO FLYING INTO THE WALL AND BOTH ARE DAZED. KAREEM HUNT IS A POWERFUL, EXPLOSIVE PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE, AND YOU CAN TELL THE PEOPLE ARE HURT. THE COPS CAME TO THE HOTEL, AND THEY INTERVIEWED KAREEM HUNT, THE WOMAN WHO WAS ATTACKED AND FRIENDS. THE WOMAN SAID THAT THIS ALL HAPPENED BECAUSE THEY KICKED HER OUT OF KAREEM’S HOTEL ROOM BECAUSE SHE WOULDN’T HOOK UP WITH A MAN IN KAREEM’S ENTOURAGE. THE FRIENDS TOLD POLICE A DIFFERENT STORY. THAT SHE STARTED ACTING CRAZY IN THE ROOM AND STARTED USING THE N-WORD. THAT IS WHY EVERYBODY GOT UPSET AND TRIED TO THROW HER OUT AND SHE WOULDN’T LEAVE. THE COPS POLICE REPORTS OBTAINED BY “TMZ” SPORTS, THEY KNEW THAT IS YOUR VEIL ANDS VIDEO WAS AVAILABLE. WE SPOKE WITH POLICE, AND THAT IS YOUR VEIL ANDS VIDEO WAS SUBMITTED INTO EVIDENCE, AND PROSECUTORS SAW THIS, BUT THEY STILL DIDN’T FEEL THIS WAS AT THE LEVEL OF A CRIME, SO HE WAS NOT CHARGED, PROSECUTORED OR ANYTHING. WHEN YOU WATCH THIS VIDEO, YOU THINK TO YOUR RECEIVE NUMBER ONE WHAT THE HELL IS THIS GUY THINKING? YOU ARE A PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE AND PUTTING YOUR HANDS ON A 19-YEAR-OLD WOMAN WHO IS NOT, AND HE KICKS HER. THE NFL, WHERE ARE THEY IN THIS WHOLE THING? AGAIN, THIS HAPPENED IN FEBRUARY. THE NFL SEASON STARTED IN SEVEN. KAREEM HUNT HAS NOT BEEN SUSPENDED, PUNISHED OR ANYTHING. WE DON’T KNOW IF THE NFL HAD ACCESS TO THIS VIDEO. THAT WAS A BIG STICKING POINT IN THE RAY RICE STORY. CHARLES: WE KNOW THE VIDEO WAS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. SO DID THE NFL REQUEST IT? DID THEY INVESTIGATE IT? THE POLICE DETERMINED THEY COULDN’T FIGURE OUT WHO THE AGGRESSOR WAS. MAYBE THEY SAW IT AS MUTUAL COMBAT, SO THEY DIDN’T PRESS ANY CHARGES. BUT THE NFL HAS SAID THEY ARE NOT BASING THEIR PUNISHMENT OF PLAYERS ON WHAT POLICE DO. SINCE THE RAY RICE INCIDENT — THAT IS WHERE SHE IS KNOCKED INTO THE WALL AND SHE IS DAZED. THAT IS KAREEM’S FRIEND, WHO IS ALSO DAZED. CHARLES: BUT SINCE THE RAY RICE INCIDENT, THE NFL HAS SAID — THEY ACKNOWLEDGED AT THAT POINT THERE WERE FLAWS IN THEIR INVESTIGATION OF RAY RICE. RICE WAS SUSPENDED INDEFINITELY, BUT NOT UNTIL WE POSTED THE VIDEO OF THE ELEVATOR. VAN: IT WAS INITIALLY A SLAP ON THE WRIST. SO KAREEM HUNT HAS NOT BEEN PUNISHED AT ALL. IF YOU WATCH THIS VIDEO, KAREEM HUNT HAD SEVERAL OPPORTUNITIES TO WALK AWAY. THERE WERE FRIEND OF HIS, BIG GUYS WHO WERE TRYING TO PULL HIM AWAY AND MAKE HIM GO BACK TO HIS ROOM, AND HE DIDN’T. HE ESCALATED IT, AND ULTIMATELY THE WOMAN GOES CRASHING INTO THE WALL, AND SHE GETS KICKED. IF YOU ARE THE NFL, WHAT IS THE POINT OF A PERSONAL CONDUCT POLICY IF YOU ARE NOT GOING TO ENFORCE IT IN THIS PARTICULAR CIRCUMSTANCE? VAN: WE ARE ASSUMING THAT THEY HAVE SEEN THE VIDEO. CHARLES: NO. WHAT DID THE NFL SAY WHEN YOU REACHED OUT TO THEM? WE REACHED OUT TO THEM AND HAVEN’T HEARD BACK FROM THEM YET. UNCLEAR IF THEY HAVE SEEN THIS VIDEO OR NOT. AFTER THE RAY RICE THING, ROGER GOODELL SAID THEY WERE GOING TO MAKE MORE OF AN EFFORT TO SEE THIS. CHARLES: ONE OF TWO THINGS. THEY DIDN’T GET THE VIDEO, OR THEY GOT THE VIDEO, LOOKED AT IT AND FELT LIKE IT DIDN’T DESERVE PUNISHMENT. NEITHER OF THOSE THINGS IS VERY GOOD FOR THE NFL. VAN: OF COURSE IT DESERVES A PUNISHMENT. HAVING TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION EVERYTHING THAT EVERYONE SAID, THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR HIS BEHAVIOR RIGHT THERE. AS FAR AS THE NFL’S PART IN IT, IT HAS BEEN QUITE SOMETIME SINCE THE INCIDENT HAPPENED, AND WE ARE JUST NOW GETTING THE VIDEO. YOU HAVE TO WONDER WHETHER OR NOT THEY SAW IT. FOR KAREEM HUNT’S PART IN THIS, MAN, YOU HAVE TO BE BETTER THAN THIS. ALL OF THESE YOUNG GUYS THAT ARE IN THESE SITUATIONS — AND FORGET ABOUT BEING IN NFL. JUST PERIOD. WHEN DEALING WITH LADY AND WOMEN AS A HUMAN BEING, YOU HAVE TO BE BETTER THAN THIS. THERE ARE A BUNCH OF THINGS YOU CAN SAY, ANY NAMES HE GOT CALLED, IF THAT HAPPENED, HOW HE MAY HAVE FELT. BUT YOU CAN’T LET THAT HAPPEN. I AM FROM ROANOAK, VIA. I AGREE WITH YOU. YOU HAVE TO BE BETTER THAN THAT NOT JUST WITH WOMEN, BUT WITH PEOPLE IN GENERAL. YOU CAN WALK AWAY. THE VIDEO, IT WENT ON FOR SO LONG. IT FELT LIKE THEY COULDN’T GET ANY CONTROL OF IT. HIS ENTOURAGE, THEY SHOULD HAVE SAID SOMEONE ESCORT HER OUT AND I HAVE HIM. I FEEL OLYMPIC HE JUST LET — I FEEL LIKE THEY JUST LET IT GO. VAN: THEY COULDN’T CONTROL HIM. HE IS IN THE NFL. CHARLES: THERE WERE SO MANY OPPORTUNITIES FOR HIM TO GO BACK IN THE ROOKIE AND LET IT GO. WE JUST PUBLISHED A THING A FEW MINUTES AGO. SOCIAL MEDIA — I KNOW SOCIAL MEDIA DOES WHAT IT DOES. BUT IT IS A BAD LOOK FOR KAREEM HUNT RIGHT NOW. PEOPLE ARE KILLING HIM FOR THIS. CHARLES: NOW THE NFL HAS TO DECIDE WHAT TO DO. THE CHIEFS HAVE TO DECIDE WHAT TO DO. AND KAREEM HUNT ON A PERSONAL LEVEL HAS SOME THINGS TO FIGURE OUT.

Only registered users can comment.

  1. Anyone notice the girl who tapes it on her phone and the guy (presumably of Kareem's entourage) that takes it from her, rather than attend to the woman on the ground.

  2. That was the weakest Fucking kick I’ve ever seen, now because people are Fucking retards we just lost our running back and maybe our Super Bowl hopes

  3. Men! You have to stop apologizing for executing your rights! She obviously approached him with violent intentions! You are promoting self entitlement

  4. 1. Kareem should have walked away. he did not have to attack her. 2. The lady that he attacked was a piece of garbage. When you call anybody something dehumanizing as the N-word what do expect to happen? She was stupid. So stupid people did stupid things.

  5. Kareem Hunt has been arrested at least 35 times in northeast Ohio and multiple times on charges of domestic violence, according to records obtained by USA TODAY. Most of the felony convictions were for drug-related offenses. He was sentenced to a combined nine years in prison on nine felony convictions, but it's unclear how much time he spent in jail for dozens of misdemeanor charges.

  6. If a man went up to Kareem hint and called him a n word and Kareem proceeded to punch/kick him there would be no assault charge

  7. She should not have been ignorant and belligerent calling people the N word because they tried to kick her out of the hotel room because no one wanted to talk to her ugly self. She got in his face like she was tough so hey. It is what it is. Also he barely pushed her and kicked her. She deserved what she got.b

  8. Terrible reporting and commentary on this video from TMZ. You need to establish the reasons behind the altercation before rushing to judgement and condemnation. Judging from the video this wasn't a one sided issue and the girl was clearly aggravating the situation

  9. Tmz is pathetic. Resorting to this bs. Because the chargers cant beat the chiefs with hunt. You can only win if you resort to this bs. You cant win on the field. Suck it dishonorable douchebags.

  10. Yeah I understand he’s wrong but what about the female it’s like she’s a saint. Probably kept running her mouth and provoking him more!

  11. I don't think he was right for what he did, it seemed hella immature and he could've walked away. But the girl got what she deserved, and she lucky that all she got was a love-tap…erm I mean brutal kick to her side. But I swear, I'm not even mad people think about boycotting the NFL. This guy lost his job over some snowflake bullshit. Goodell is a fucking coward. They literally wrote an article on how Kareem Hunt was so "wrong" and he would apologize if he had the chance. They painted him as some kind of abuser. Fucking Crockshit

  12. Any rich successful men have the same point which is often fall for women, & that women often ruin their career

  13. It's called gold digging ….happens to athletes all the time …Now Kareem is out of a job and this chick will probably get paid….Society is so sad……That chick hit him too …but everyone sees when he pushes her and says "oh My God" ….so stupid…..I say if chicks hit you they get what comes back…never let anyone put there hands on you…period!

  14. This shit was forever ago, and now that we see this video I feel like, at least he didnt ray rice that bitch. She was fine enough to talk shit still. If he cocked back and hit her I'd understand the outcry. I feel like women wanna say they can do what men do but then act EXTRA frail and fragile when there's a chance they can get some sympathy and a man in jail. Not to mention the millions that bitch will sue him for. However going forward keep your hands to yourself and pay security. They at least could a stomped the girl and nobody woulda said shit.

  15. It's laughable how every time a black person does something fucked up the new defense is that someone used the N word. Sorry, but that might have worked the first couple of times but now I'm calling bullshit until you prove it.

  16. Watch this video the whole way through only looking at the women. I’m not a lawyer but I could make a GOOD ass case that the women is the aggressor in this situation who is antagonizing him. Obviously when he addressed the media he could not take this stance or else all the triggered SJWs would go nuts

  17. Lol he barely fucking kicked her a light tap on the ass stop it ?? Hopefully my Bears sign him next year. If not someone else will.

  18. This Guys talking make me want to Call Kareem to punsh them. Clicks Clicks nothing Else. Haters be like… Watch that Video. That stupid Girl wtf. Im Sure if the 3 guys talking we're in the same Situation they would do the same.

  19. dazed?….or drunk? how do these ladies of TMZ know? "well they can't control him, he's in the NFL". just because ppl are professional athletes don't mean they're stronger than every person that isn't a pro athlete. Making it sound like he's so out of control. looks like he used some control when he "kicked" her. a 7 year old could've kicked harder than that

  20. I find it weird that everyone is talking about how everyone’s a feminist but 75% of the comments are people roasting feminists

  21. Damn in what world I'm living
    Is it only me or the woman deserved way more
    She was never punched and never pushed into a wall
    She only received a sorry ass little kick on her leg

  22. Where did TMZ obtain this video?Odd timing? Anyone have the answer to this?
    And why have I not heard one media voice say she shouldve walked away or she shouldnt have punched that guy? Are women not responsible for thier actions anymore? The reason she was even on the ground, is because of her fault.

  23. Yet another dumb ghetto thug who gets paid millions to run & be a work horse so he thinks his actions don't have consequences. At least someone gave him a job in Cleveland lmao

  24. That guy is a piece of shit the NFL only hired him because they think he's a good player he's not even a good human being whatsoever give me a fucking break fuck you NFL!!!

  25. 1. She doesn't touch the wall. 2. The kick was more of a love tap on her fat arse. 3. She looks drunk and troubled. 4. Stop the BS.

  26. man, fuck tmz. are y'all serious? she called him the n-r word so if you ask me, she wasn't hit hard enough. of course, sorority white girls get away with whatever they want and a fantastic athlete loses all he's worked for because of how the system works. ridiculous.

  27. Wow, nothing happened. Like really jack shit happened, im a browns fan and was pretty disgusted when they picked up a player who "attacked" a woman until i've now seen the video and nothing happened. She kept coming back clearly screaming and shouting shit and provoking him. Chiefs loss is our gain. Good look in the future Kareem!

  28. Where are all the feminists at raging over Robert Kraft personally funding human sex trafficking? Or is it only relevant when a black man with celebrity status disrespects a woman? ? Good ol Murica…

  29. It's cool I'm a Browns fan he will be Gucci in Cleveland we go all out to help the players here we gave Josh Gordon so many chances Kareem hunt welcome home??

  30. That's not bad at all I'm just saying and I'm sure I'm not alone in this but if you knew me and my old man shoot that aint shit the b** needs to save it just go your separate ways and leave it the f*** alone I'm so sure what just because it has to do with a football player that's understandable code of conduct or what not but this b** she needs to let it go and quit putting so much on it it's embarrassing for her I'm just saying I don't know I don't care I'm just saying outside looking in that's what I see. Stupid b** don't act a fool don't swing on a man don't step to a man or any person for that matter and you won't get smacked down I don't care what all these people say talking about never hit a woman I would never domestic violence is real yeah it is speaking from someone who knows it is real but then you have these people the majority of them being stupid b**** that want to act out and swing on one man or woman that person's liable to hit you back you're lucky that's all you got was a little nudge here in a little nudge their don't be hitting on people stupid b** she should be in jail

  31. She's lucky that's all her racist, how ass got…o'l drunk, methhead…she's lucky she still has teeth on that dock sucking mouth.

  32. moral of the story ladies dont be racist or instigate situations with men if you not ready for the consequences

  33. Fuck tmz. Bunch of Hollywood parasites that act friendly but clearly just want stories, dirt, or most of all something useful to ruin someone's life. Seems to me this woman was being a bitch, trying to start something, and then playing victim afterwards. Fuck her. And not to mention they completely took this out of context, "Flying to wall.", really? Fuck tmz.

  34. Didn't charge him with a crime because there was no crime. Black guy kicking white woman… that's what America saw. If I kicked that girl full force her entire body would have been lifted so just imagine what an Elite running back could have done.

  35. Clickbait!! I was under the impression that he landed a roundhouse kick to the head, but noooo he just tapped her in the leg….nice way to blow this shit up beyond what it is…

  36. This video is trash from every angle….the commentary is what’s devastating….btw the police and the people who actually looked at the video all came to same and total opposite conclusions than these clowns….

  37. What do you mean, "NOT A CRIME"? (3:04) How horrible not to hold Kareem Hunt accountable for this level of violent assault?!?! This is an outrage.

  38. Shame on the NFL for tolerating this and coddling the culprit and further victimizing the victim. HORRIBLE! What about at 5:01 when his pal snatches her friends camera phone clean out of her hands to obstruct justice and steal evidence? THIS CRAP HAS TO STOP!!!

  39. RACIST ASF! that light nudge of the foot, basically he tripped her up lmao! AIN'T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THIS SHIT TMZ! Ya'll karma is coming for all this fuckery ya'll do
