John Legend, Diddy, Jesse Tyler Ferguson & More Stars Fire Back at Donald Trump Over NFL Protest Comments!

Stars like John Legend, Diddy and Jesse Tyler Ferguson are firing back at President Donald Trump for his comments on Saturday (September 23) regarding NFL players who protest during the National Anthem at games.

During an address in Huntsville, Alabama, Trump asked the crowd if they would “love to see one of these NFL owners – when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, he’s fired.’”

The comment was in reference to athletes like Colin Kaepernick who have protested the administration by taking a knee before the game.

Athletes and celebrities alike have since fired back at Trump, who doubled-down on his comments with a string of tweets on Twitter: “If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL,or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect…our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem. If not, YOU’RE FIRED. Find something else to do!”

    These commentors are as dumb as rocks. The flag is not the cause of the problems they are protesting. If people are so bothered by the flag and all the benefits of living under it, then move to Canada.

    Yes, and why doesn’t our billionaire President, born with his golden spoon in his mouth, do something about it ? All he does is find ways to rip people off all the while he lies his face off.

  • Esoteric11

    BS. Of course, you are a Trump dolt. No other reason to put down the celebs if you were not. Trumpettes like to use the term snowflake, when in fact you are one. Call me whatever you like, I am not offended by 8 year olds.
