*The family of Stephon Clark, who was shot and killed by Sacramento police in 2018, is speaking out over demands that the NFL pull a new PSA spotlighting the case.
“Enough is enough. I am sick and tired of the smear campaign against my brother who is no longer here to defend himself. Shame, shame on Anne Marie Shubert, shame on the California District Attorney’s Union… shame, shame, shame,” Clark’s brother, Stevante Clark, said during a family press conference held Wednesday outside the Sacramento County District Attorney’s office.
The PSA is part of the NFL’s “Inspire Change” campaign, featuring Stephon Clark’s mother speaking about the death of her 22-year-old son at the hands of Sacramento police in 2018. The video is one in a series aimed at raising awareness about systemic racism and police use of force.
The California District Attorney’s Association claims the video misrepresents the facts, citing two legal reviews of the shooting that found it to be justified. In the letter the CDAA sent, they ask the NFL to “reexamine the factual findings of Stephon Clark’s death” and produce another video.
