The former San Francisco 49'ers player Colin Kaepernick began in 2016 in protest against american police violence against black to sit and since kneel during the american national anthem instead of standing up.
On the protestformen, which was adopted by other NFL players, said Drew Brees, that he would never agree with people that show his country or the flag of disrespect.
It was american sports stars up out of the chair.
Basketballstjernen LeBron James wrote on Twitter that Drew Brees does not understand the protest.
Wow. You understand apparently still don't know why Kap (Colin Kaepernick, ed.) went down on a knee.
- It has absolutely nothing to do with not respecting the flag and our soldiers, " wrote LeBron James.
And there is evidence to suggest that the criticism has hit Brees.
- After having talked with some of you it crushes my heart to know that I have hurt you.
- In an attempt at addressing the respect, unity and solidarity around the american flag and the national anthem, I said things that were insensitive and not at all in line with the problems we are facing as a country right now, writes Drew Brees.
