Celebrities React to NFL National Anthem Kneeling Protests - Read the Tweets

Celebrities are taking to Twitter today to speak out about some NFL players choosing to kneel during the National Anthem.

A handful of NFL players chose to kneel today, while many linked arms in unity to show their support.

“As a football fan, I am proud of the NFL players today. Nothing is more American than the right to peacefully protest,” Ellen DeGeneres tweeted.

The kneeling issue came to light after Donald Trump said, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a b*tch off the field right now. Out! He’s fired. He’s fired!’”

    So this is why people watch football these days? To see what players “take a knee”? Who cares about them when there are bigger things happening in the world right now

    People who choose to kneel during the National Anthem are the first ones to buy American Flags when planes crash into buildings.

    Half these morons don’t even know why they’re doing what they’re doing. There was a lot of BOOING from fans yesterday in reaction to this crap. While they’re “on the job” they should shut the fuck up and play football. There will be repercussions and see how fast they stop doing this.

  • meme

    While in a uniform they shouldn’t be doing this. What they do on their own time is their business. They’re losing fans rapidly. No one wants to watch this political bullshit at a game.

  • meme

    They are ridiculous. This is a protest against Trump and nothing more. The hatred people have for him will destroy them.

  • annum004

    That’s history, this is now. They’re here to play football.

  • meme

    What’s history?

  • annum004

    The context of the Star Spangled Banner, usurpation, slavery and racism is history.

  • meme

    Like you said, they’re here to play football not express their views. So STFU and play football. And STAND. It’s in the rulebook.

  • annum004

    Standing in this case is expressing their views.

    Standing for the anthem is in the rule book. Go check it out along with the other rules about how players are told to behave. Basically, they are at work. That jerk Goodell only enforces the rules he wants to enforce.

  • annum004

    As long as the behavior isn’t illegal or causes harm to others, play ball.

    Standing in this case is expressing their views at work, play ball.

  • meme

    Are you dense? The rules are the rules. And, in general, people are not allowed to express their viewpoints at work by physical demonstration. You can go topless in NYC if you’re a woman but that doesn’t mean I can go topless to work.

  • annum004

    Let go. It’s history. Play ball.
