NFL fans who can’t handle protests are canceling their DirecTV sports packages
Ignorance is bliss, especially when it comes to free speech at football games.
That’s what Trump supporters and other football fans who can’t handle sports activism seem to think.
For the football fans who claim they are bothered seeing athletes standing up (or rather, kneeling) for the right to protest, DirecTV is caving with refunds to their sports package, the Wall Street Journal reported.
The cancellations stem from 49ers Colin Kaepernick kneeling in protest last season during the national anthem in response to police brutality disproportionately affecting the black community. The protest has since spread through the league and president Donald Trump used strong words for anyone taking a knee at a rally last week.
