Model/actress Kate Upton had social media in an uproar after she slammed NFL players for protesting the National Anthem, calling it “disgraceful.”
Referring to the Miami Dolphins players who kneeled down during the anthem at Sunday night’s game, Upton posted a response on Instagram: “Sitting or kneeling down during the national anthem is a disgrace….I could never imagine multiple people sitting down during the national anthem on the Sept. 11th anniversary.”
But supermodel Jessica White was not here for Kate’s rant. She also took to IG to address the situation: “I love you babe you know I do. But the freedom you speak of isn’t the same freedom that some of my people receive. Next time a young black male is shot down and his murder isn’t vindicated I hope you speak out loud about how his “freedom” was taken away from him/her.”
The Miami Dolphins’ decision not to stand during the National Anthem was the latest in a series of protests. The demonstrations began with 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who says he will not stand for a country that systemically oppresses people of color.
