MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — Miami Dolphins receiver Kenny Stills says he has no hard feelings toward Stephen Ross regarding the team owner’s support of Donald Trump, and says his objections to a fundraiser for the president aren’t political.

But Stills says there’s a contradiction in Ross supporting both racial equality and Trump.

“It’s not right,” Stills said following the Dolphins’ preseason win over the Atlanta Falcons. “Our country is in a rough place right now. I think there are other candidates he could support, but it’s not about Democrat or Republican. It’s about why are you trying to help this man raise money to continue to do the things he has been doing.”

In the wake of his recent criticism, Stills said, he has received death threats — “five to 10 in a night” — on social media but didn’t report them.
