Kate Upton Has Some Feelings About the NFL National Anthem Protest

It appears that Kate Upton really has some opinions on the protests happening right now in the NFL.

Kate shared a photo of the Miami Dolphins football team kneeling during the national anthem on Sunday, which also was the 15th anniversary of the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks.

“Sitting or kneeling down during the national anthem is a disgrace to those people who have served and currently serve our country. Sitting down during the national anthem on September 11th is even more horrific,” her post reads.

In my opinion, the national anthem is a symbolic song about our country. It represents honoring the many brave men and women who sacrifice and have sacrificed their lives each and every single day to protect our freedom. Sitting or kneeling down during the national anthem is a disgrace to those people who have served and currently serve our country. Sitting down during the national anthem on September 11th is even more horrific. Protest all you want and use social media all you want. However, during the nearly two minutes when that song is playing, I believe everyone should put their hands on their heart and be proud of our country for we are all truly blessed. Recent history has shown that it is a place where anyone no matter what race or gender has the potential to become President of the United States. We live in the most special place in the world and should be thankful. After the song is over, I would encourage everyone to please use the podium they have, stand up for their beliefs, and make America a better place. The rebuilding of battery park and the freedom tower demonstrates that amazing things can be done in this country when we work together towards a common goal. It is a shame how quickly we have forgotten this as a society. Today we are more divided then ever before. I could never imagine multiple people sitting down during the national anthem on the September 11th anniversary. The lessons of 911 should teach us that if we come together, the world can be a better and more peaceful place #neverforget.

The protests sparked national attention when Colin Kaepernick, a quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, began sitting or kneeling during the national anthem at 49ers games.

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” he said to NFL Media. “To me, this is bigger than football, and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

Kate also tweeted about it.

Sorry I wasn’t clear. Never during our national anthem. Especially on 9/11 #NeverForgethttps://t.co/UEDIsqbXEr
