Rock star Kid Rock may or may not be running for the U.S. Senate from Michigan, but his opinion about NFL national anthem protesters is unmistakable: he doesn’t like them.
As the NFL’s first week ended, Kid Rock felt compelled to speak up about all the protests seen across the league.
With comments posted to his Facebook page, the rock star covered a range of topics. However, he also spoke out about the protests begun by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
“F**k ANYONE who takes a knee or sits during our national anthem!” the singer proclaimed.
Rock also knocked down the argument that Kaepernick has been turned out of the NFL because of his left-wing politics. The “Cowboy” singer insisted that Kaepernick is on the sidelines because he just isn’t a good enough player.
“Pretty sure if Russell Wilson or Tom Brady were doing it they would have no problem finding a job playing for any team they wanted in the NFL! So cut the bullsh*t!” he said.
Kid Rock’s admonition aside, the list of players protesting the United States during the playing of the national anthem is growing.
During the games of the NFL’s first week, over a dozen players took up the protest.
