There was an initial fuss last week because Jans would have used the n-word in the dressing room, in his own words without ulterior motives and while singing a rap song.

The MLSPA players’ union came first on Tuesday evening with the message that more were playing. “The story of singing a song is totally untrue, despite the trainer’s claim. The standards have been exceeded. An unsafe environment has been created for the players,” can be read in a statement.
The Cincinnati Inquirer reported that in October after visiting slavery monuments, Jans would have made inappropriate remarks about the history of slavery. His speech was intended as a lesson to overcome setbacks, but it did not go well internally.
