Marcus Vick, brother of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, took to Twitter to express his displeasure with Riley Cooper, the Eagles wide receiver who recently was caught on video making racist remarks

Marcus offered a $1,000 bounty on any safety to "light up" Cooper for his remarks. Someone claiming to be his co-publicist tweeted at him to keep quiet, ending his rant, but Marcus is yet to delete the previous tweets.

Marcus Vick claims his Twitter was hacked and has since deleted the Tweets. Michael Vick also added the following in a meeting with the press:

This is not the first time that Marcus has gone on a Twitter rant to speak on an issue that Michael likely would prefer he remain silent about.

Cooper will meet with his Eagles teammates to issue his personal apology on Wednesday night, which likely won't make things any easier.
