You played yourself: Black Twitter responds to #BoycottNFL

Have you seen Twitter today? If you're a football fan, it might look something like this.

And their hatred is bubbling over now that more players are following his lead. Thursday, Denver Broncos' Brandon Marshall took a knee during the anthem and was very clear about his motives. "I'm not against the military or police or America at all. I'm against social injustice and I feel like this was the right thing to do." That act of solidarity was too much for "Dog Avi Twitter" to take. Some people refuse to hear the truth. They're convinced his protest is about the flag and disrespecting our servicemen and women. Players are cry babies? Players aren't helping? The last time I checked, both Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers organization were putting up millions.

Black Twitter's not here for the hypocrisy.

You care about rights and saving lives? Since when?

Oh, and if y'all really about that life...

You know how this ends, right?
