Singer Wayne Newton had a message for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and other athletes who are protesting the oppression of black people in America by not standing for the national anthem.
“I think every American has the right to say and do whatever it is that freedom offers us,” Newton said. “However, during the national anthem, is not the time or the place to show that kind of thing. I have no tolerance at all for it. I support the right to say what they believe and how they believe it, but that’s the wrong place and time.”
Newton then added they could “get the hell out” if they do not like it.
