After NFL players have taken their stance (or knee) to protest the national anthem and the racial injustice in the United States., celebrities have joined in to show their support.
P. Diddy posted a video on Instagram sending his blessings and support.
“My message to y’all — even though you ain’t asking, so please receive it because I rarely give ‘em in this way — y’all got a chance to do something really, really, really, really, really great tomorrow. If you all do whatever you do in unity, you can’t be stopped. Just do the math, man. Do the math, stick together, stand up for each other, ride with each other because believe me, we’re all we got and it has nothing to do with football or business. Y’all are our stars, y’all represent us, y’all are our strong heroes. So show that strength, please.”
Ellen Degeneres tweeted:
"As a football fan, I am proud of the NFL players today. Nothing is more American than the right to peacefully protest."
Others tagged on their support with their distaste over President Trump's comments about the kneeling protesters.
At my 2pm matinee today I will participate in the NFL players protest against Trump's hateful anti-American comments.
He's not declaring war on NFL and NBA. Owners are his donors. He's declaring way against black people with opinions.
Samuel L. Jackson:
So... How many Sons A' Bitches kneeling tomorrow??!! How many of Dotards boys firing Mothfukkas?? Odds??!!
'Privilege.' Some people don't get given millions by Daddy, Donnie. They actually earn it.
