NFL’er Dez Bryant Slammed Over National Anthem Stance
NFL’er Dez Bryant is making headlines for his stance on the national anthem protests. On Tuesday (August 16th), the Dallas Cowboys wide receiver defended his initial stance on national anthem protests Tuesday by telling Twitter critics he has a “family to feed” and “not saying I don’t care about it.”
He was asked after practice Tuesday his thoughts on NFL players protesting the national anthem. He was quoted as saying,
Whatever they got going on with that, that’s them. I don’t really have nothing to say about that.
After being called out on Twitter for his initial comments, Bryant responded. See a few exchanges on social media below:
This preseason, Seattle Seahawks player Michael Bennett and Oakland Raiders player Marshawn Lynch have protested, following the lead of free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick from last season. Kaepernick, who kneeled during the anthem last year, has yet to be signed to a NFL team.
