Rob Lowe to NFL National Anthem Boycotters: Give It A Rest For a Day

Rob Lowe took to his Twitter account to address the NFL and the players who have been boycotting the National Anthem, and urged them not to do it Today (September 11) in respect to those fallen.

“Dear @NFL Any player wants to boycott the anthem on 9/11 should be asked to remain in the locker room until kick off. It’s not their moment,” he wrote.

When a fan responded by saying, “You don’t have to like it but it’s a basic constitutional right, my friend,” Rob replied, “TOTALLY agree with you. But there is a time and place. It’s 9/11. Give it a rest for a day and respect the fallen.”

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been very outspoken about his views on not standing for the National Anthem during pre-season games.

Today is the first official day of the NFL football season.

    Just another White Boy with Privileges trying to insert himself into the media to build a personal “Brand”. He will say anything to get attention right now. That’s why they had a Roast for him on Comedy Central. Was it CC? I don’t remember?
