NASCAR Owners Warn That They Won't Tolerate National Anthem Protests At Races, Making 45 "So Proud"
Do y'all watch Nascar? Because listen.
After 45 dropped a "SOB" bomb in reference to players who chose to take a knee during the national anthem, many people protested him and the anthem by choosing to take a knee anyway. While celebrities, athletes, veterans, and civilians alike called him on his BS, one corporation is having none of that.
You can count on good ole NASCAR to let everyone know that if they see any of that protesting stuff, it won't be tolerated.
According to The Hill, NASCAR owners said Sunday they would not condone racers protesting during the national anthem, amid protests by sports players at football and baseball games.
