Speaking to TMZ Sports, Cousins left no doubt that he would like to see all of the Confederate-related statues still standing brought down (Warning: contains profanity):
Cousins' comments come during the same week in which Confederate statues and monuments have been torn down by protesters or removed by local government officials.
