Janoris Jenkins tweeted while receiving treatment at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center. The tweet was in poor taste and reflects poorly on the Giants organization. The Giants had built up Jenkins as a leader on defense, but his tweet was a blight on their reputation. It was an error of judgment, and he should be ejected from the team. But how will the Giants deal with the fallout?
Jenkins’ social media experience
Andrew Jenkins, principal at Volterra, is an expert in social media strategy and marketing. He was previously the head of social media strategy for the Royal Bank of Canada, and his clients have included a wide array of companies across North America and Europe. He is a regular speaker at industry conferences and teaches a course on social media. He has also written about social media and marketing strategies for a variety of industries, including financial services, retail, and real estate.
Jenkins’ film projects
Barry Jenkins’ first feature film was “A Star Is Born.” It was a critical and commercial success. Then, he waited more than a decade to make his next one. After receiving an academic scholarship from Florida State University, Jenkins pursued a degree in English and creative writing. He then went on to enroll at the College of Motion Picture Arts, where he received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2003. Since then, Jenkins has a diverse list of film credits.
After graduating from film school, Jenkins began to study foreign cinema, including the work of Wong Kar-wai and Claire Denis. He also began writing for independent films. In 2007, Jenkins wrote and directed a short film called Medicine for Melancholy, a story about two black men in gentrifying San Francisco. This film received critical acclaim as a surefooted debut that explored issues in a spirit of exploration.
Besides his film work, Jenkins has also written and directed a number of television shows. His most recent series, “Chapter V of Dear White People,” won a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Directing for Limited Series. The series also earned Jenkins several Emmy nominations, including directing and writing. His career has soared in recent years, with numerous awards and nominations. But Jenkins is not stopping there. In addition to directing feature films, Jenkins is currently working on a television series based on the novel by Colson Whitehead.
While his feature film debut, “Moonlight,” was no blockbuster, it was a subtle and affecting portrayal of Chiron, a young man trying to make sense of his sexuality during the crack epidemic in New Orleans. It made Jenkins a renowned young director, and led to several other projects including “If Beale Street Could Talk” and “The Underground Railroad” on Amazon. After Moonlight, Jenkins went on to direct an adaptation of James Baldwin’s book, “If Beale Street Could Talk.”
While working on the film series, Jenkins also consulted with other scholars and filmmakers on a documentary project, focusing on Native Americans living in the Southwest. His research team travelled to Native communities in New Mexico and Arizona to research and film the project. After the production was complete, they decided to seek funding for the series through crowdfunding, and they set a goal of $US800. This goal was exceeded and the film is now available on DVD, through Koorong.
Jenkins’ slur for mentally disabled people
In a recent Twitter exchange, linebacker Janoris Jenkins called a fan a “retard.” The former Giant apologized for the offensive slur and said he used it as a slang term from his childhood. However, the comment has prompted another reaction. Jenkins has now been waived by the Giants. He also has been accused of using the “R” word twice in the past year.
The R-word campaign is a growing movement to end the use of this term. It represents one of the oldest stigmas against disabled people, and is associated with bullying, rejection, incarceration, and sterilization. While Neufeld is unlikely to be aware of its origins, the word has a long history of dehumanization, from the time it was first used in the mid-19th century to today.
Jenkins’ comments about the Giants
When he was with the Giants, Jenkins was a star. He had twelve picks in 53 games, including four this year. As a result, he was a bright spot on the Giants defense. While Jenkins’ performances started slowly in 2019, he’s turned in some solid games in the past couple of weeks. His comments about the Giants should come as no surprise. Here’s what Jenkins had to say about the team:
The Giants released Jenkins on Friday. But Jenkins did not apologize for using the R-word while playing for the team. He called a Giants fan a “retard” on Instagram back in August. The Giants had previously championed Jenkins as a promising rookie. But when a fan accused him of being a “retard” on social media, Jenkins did not genuinely apologize. However, he’s been called “Jackrabbit” for his behavior.
The Giants haven’t dealt with many problems on defense this season, but Jenkins’ comments about the team and defensive coordinator James Bettcher caused a stir. Ultimately, Jenkins’ comments were a poor example of what the Giants are trying to teach their young players. However, Jenkins hasn’t been the only one to question the Giants’ coaching staff. The Giants’ youth movement has focused on developing younger players, and Jenkins has been a big part of that.
The comments about the Giants weren’t the only reason why the Giants cut Jenkins. The veteran cornerback also criticized the pass rush and blamed James Bettcher for not using him to shadow receivers. But the Giants still raved about Jenkins, and he was referred to as a team leader to the younger cornerbacks. And despite the poor decision, Jenkins has now been waived by the Giants.
