Jerry Rice tells Colin Kaepernick not to ‘disrespect’ the flag

Jerry Rice

There has been no shortage of people commenting on the Colin Kaepernick national anthem protest, and the latest to weigh in is San Francisco 49ers legend Jerry Rice.

Rice sent a tweet on Monday night in which he said “All lives matter.” He also said Kaepernick should not “disrespect” the flag by refusing to stand for the anthem.

The Hall of Fame wide receiver’s comment was met with outrage from some on Twitter.

Kaepernick’s decision to protest the anthem has been a polarizing one. The NFL issued a statement saying they encourage but do not require players to stand for the anthem. Many players have either supported or opposed Kaepernick’s move. The strongest response of all came from the San Francisco Police Officers Association, which had this to say.

Now we know where the NFL’s all-time leading receiver stands on the matter.
