Drew Brees apologizes for calling kneeling during the National Anthem disrespectful

https://instagram.com/p/CBA1P3gHpT_


- Follow up to this post where New Orleans Saints quarterback stated that "[he] will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America". He also stated that his white grandfathers fought WW2 to make the USA a great country for him to live in.
- Today, after being dragged on social media and in the press/on TV, he released an apology on Instagram: "In an attempt to talk about respect, unity, and solidarity centered around the American flag and the national anthem, I made comments that were insensitive and completely missed the mark on the issues we are facing right now as a country. They lacked awareness and any type of compassion or empathy. Instead, those words have become divisive and hurtful and have misled people into believing that somehow I am an enemy."
- Of course, social media users are not having it since he's being dragged in the comments of his post and outside with the hashtag #DrewBreesIsCancelled
- On the other hand, some of his Black teammates approved his apology.













Damn, I can't believe how many Non Black people are showing their asses everyday since the start of the protests, this movement is revealing everyone's true colors
