#BoycottNFL has taken over our timeline, and it begs the question: Are you big mad or little mad? People are still upset that Colin Kaepernick protested the national anthem. 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
If more losers continue to disrespect our flag I will #boycottNFL I will hold owners and coaches accountable.— PJG (@redarmy67) September 9, 2016
Is the NFL decides that it will make a mockery of September 11 15th anniversary I say I will never watch a football game again #boycottNFL — Charlie Onions (@CharlieOnions) September 9, 2016
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
#boycottNFL Stand up and spend your money on good things not some crybabies looking for attention. If they cared they would be out helping— Angela (@Ike19777) September 9, 2016
Black Twitter's not here for the hypocrisy.
People wanna #BoycottNFL because it "disrespects the military" but pretend like #VeteransForKapernick didn't happen https://t.co/veoJwoUNe3 — P aka Jim Bob Cooter (@chillin662) September 9, 2016
