NCAA’s Aaron Brooks Slammed For His Prophet Muhammed Comments
After a post-match interview, Aaron Brooks, a distinguished wrestler at Penn State, has found himself in a difficult situation.
Brooks, who is deeply committed to Christianity, emerged victorious in the NCAA Championship for the third time by defeating Parker Keckeisen in the finals of the NCAA Division I 184 lbs category.
Brooks made some controversial remarks after the victory that attracted a lot of attention. He started by mentioning his personal Christian beliefs but then went on to criticize fake prophets and also discredited the Islamic prophet, Muhammad.
“It’s everything. Christ’s resurrection is everything. Not just his life, his death and resurrection. You can only get that through Him. The Holy Spirit only through Him. No false prophets, no Muhammad or no anyone else. Only Jesus Christ himself,” he said Fox Sports.
The comment made about Muhammad was surprising to numerous people, including MMA reporter, Ariel Helwani.
The response to Helwani’s post was diverse, as some expressed agreement that the comment was unusual but debated whether or not it was genuinely insulting.
What a strange and disrespectful thing to say. What the. Pretty darn weird. Not to mention offensive to Muslims. Also can’t believe they put the clip and posted it on Twitter! https://t.co/14iuxIrt21

Strange? Yes… off putting ? Yes! Offensive? Only if you’re looking to be offended.

Well he said false prophet, so yes it is very offensive. Didn’t have to say that, to make it clear his faith is Christianity.
