Deandre Hopkins was catching a lot of hate on social media for appearing to give the middle finger to a caravan of Donald Trump supporters driving past him.

Hopkins was asked about this move today. I guess he’s claiming that it was more of a traffic dispute than a political statement.

“Driving on the highway, I guess I got in between a train or a bunch of cars that I wasn’t supposed to be in between in my car,” Hopkins said Tuesday on the All Things Covered podcast with teammate Patrick Peterson and former NFL player Bryant McFadden. “They was honking the horn at me and stuff like that, I guess to tell me to get out of their way. I didn’t, and the guy in front of me stepped on his brakes and tried to stop there in traffic and I got around him and a stuck him a birdie.

“I was really about to do the peace sign to him, but my index finger, this finger right here was kind of hurting so it ain’t make it up in time.”

Sure, Deandre.

According to people in the caravan, Deandre Hopkins was driving recklessly.

“It’s scary when they are coming up fast and swerving into you,” April Garcia said, according to The Arizona Republic. She said that there were more “intolerant” people Sunday throwing water and other objects at the caravan.

It’ll be interesting to see if this story stops here. It kind of sounds like Deandre Hopkins was messing with the Trump caravan. We’ll probably never know ever last detail, though.
