WATCH: Fans Boo Patriots For Kneeling During Anthem, Shout, ‘STAND UP!’
New England Patriots fans booed the 17 Patriots players who knelt during the national anthem; the crowd of more than 60,000 shouted at the athletes to “stand up!”
The boos were loud and continued throughout national anthem’s duration, MassLive reported.
Watch the video:
Players across the NFL protested Sunday, after President Donald Trump, speaking at a rally Friday, encouraged people in Alabama to leave the game if players showed disrespect toward the U.S. flag and national anthem.
“… If you see it, even if it’s one player, leave the stadium, I guarantee things will stop,” Trump said. “Things will stop. Just pick up and leave. Pick up and leave. Not the same game anymore anyway.”
Later in his speech, Trump ignited further controversy, saying that he wished NFL owners would take a more aggressive response to athletes who protest the Star Spangled Banner.
This is going to end badly for the NFL. They can’t win this battle because their fans will abandon them.
