Miami Dolphins receiver Kenny Stills called out team owner Steve Ross over the real estate developer's plans to host a fundraising lunch for President Donald Trump.

Trump is expected to attend a Friday luncheon at Ross' home in Southampton, New York, The Washington Post reported. Tickets are priced at $100,000 for a photo and lunch and $250,000 for a package that includes a roundtable discussion.

But Stills, in a Wednesday tweet, pointed to the owner's nonprofit organization called RISE, the Ross Initiative in Sports for Equality, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel noted. In his tweet, Stills included a purported mission statement from RISE.

It read: "We are a national nonprofit that educates and empowers the sports community to eliminate racial discrimination, champion social justice, and improve race relations."

And Stills wrote: "You can't have a nonprofit with this mission statement then open your doors to Trump."
