On Wednesday (May 23) to much dismay, the NFL issued a new policy regarding athletes kneeling during the National Anthem. Teams with players who don’t stand during the anthem will be fined.
Commissioner Roger Goodell wrote, “We want people to be respectful of the national anthem. We want people to stand — that’s all personnel — and make sure they treat this moment in a respectful fashion. That’s something we think we owe. [But] we were also very sensitive to give players choices.”
Clearly, folks took to Twitter to blast the NFL for violating these players’ right to protest.
