Denver Broncos’ linebacker Brandon Marshall was dumped by a sponsor after protesting during national anthem. He has the right to protest and they have the right to not use him!
Marshall is the first NFL player to lose an endorsement deal for protesting how unfair America is during the national anthem. Colin Kaepernick, Jeremy Lane and Eric Reid have also snubbed the national anthem in protest.
His sponsor, the Academy Federal Credit Union, said “Buh Bye!”
Marshall’s decision to kneel during the anthem has cost him an endorsement deal with Air Academy Federal Credit Union. The company announced on Friday that it’s severing all ties with the Broncos linebacker.
“Although we have enjoyed Brandon Marshall as our spokesperson over the past five months, Air Academy Federal Credit Union (AAFCU) has ended our partnership,” the AAFCU 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.”
Marshal said he decided to do the protest at the very last minute. “I’m against social injustice,” He said. “I’m not against the military, the police or America at all. I’m against social injustice. I felt this was the right thing to do.”
The problem is that the stats do not bear out the false narrative. There is no problem with white cops killing innocent black people.
There are some bad cops out there. There are also some bad shoots that happen. Rarely are the bad shoots nefarious.
There are thugs out there. There are criminals who run from cops, brandish weapons, fail to cooperate, and try to shoot cops.
When are these idiots going to realize the sky is not falling? When are they going to find a thankful attitude? These men are living the American dream in a way most never imagine!
Brandon Marshal just traded a chunk of income to spread a lie! Definitely a great story!
