Los Angeles Chargers running back Justin Jackson, like many other 24 year olds, admits it’s been difficult to log off lately. “The internet is addicting, I’m not going to lie,” he says. “Sometimes I have to disconnect from it and disassociate my mind from all the shitty things that are happening.”And Jackson, like many other 24 year olds, was an avid supporter of the campaign, which suspended on April 8.
