Is Drew Brees a good person
George Floyd: NFL star causes outrage with comments on protests
Drew Brees, quarterback for the New Orleans Saints, has caused outrage amid the heated mood in the United States with comments about protesting football players.
In an interview, the 41-year-old superstar was asked what he would think of professionals protesting against police violence again in the coming season, as Colin Kaepernick, who is no longer employed in the NFL, did in 2016 when he was during the national anthem went down on one knee.
"I will never agree with someone who is disrespectful to the flag of the United States or our country," Brees replied. His grandfathers both served in the war and defended the flag, he explained.
Brees also led the civil rights movement in the 1960s. “Is everything okay in our country now? No it is not. We still have a long way to go, ”he said.
“But I think if you stand there and show your respect for the flag with your hand over your heart, then it shows unity. It shows that we are all in the same boat, that we can all do better and that we are part of the solution. "
LeBron James reacts angrily
NBA superstar LeBron James then wrote on Twitter: "You still haven't understood why Cape has fallen on one knee." That had nothing to do with disrespect for the flag or the country.
