Brandon Marshall disgraced himself and everyone related to him when he took a knee yesterday during the National Anthem at the opening game of the NFL 2016 season. He has every right to use his free speech to be a dumbass, but saying dumbass things have consequences.
Here’s his – he’s lost an endorsement for disrespecting ‘Merica.
From Sports Illustrated:
Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall has lost his endorsement deal with Air Academy Federal Credit Union after kneeling during the national anthem on Thursday night before a win over the Panthers.
The Colorado-based credit union serves active and retired members of the United States military.
“Although we have enjoyed Brandon Marshall as our spokesperson over the past five months, Air Academy Federal Credit Union (AAFCU) has ended our partnership,” president and CEP Glenn Strebe said in a statement. “AAFCU is a membership-based organization who has proudly served the military community for over 60 years. While we respect Brandon’s right of expression, his actions are not a representation of our organization and membership. We wish Brandon well on his future endeavors.”
BOOM!! Suck on that, Merica-hater!!!
I really think though we should just ignore this stuff. It IS disrespectful, but does it really matter in the long run? Let these morons be morons. The rest of us will be grateful for the incredible freedoms that this great country has given us.
