The NFL’s Stephon Tuitt is not going to be kneeling for the flag during upcoming games this year and has a message for those who take exception with his decision: “Screw anybody who has a problem with that.”
Tuitt took to Twitter and wrote about the success of his grandmother – an immigrant from the Caribbean – to explain why he refuses to disrespect the flag.
“I’m not kneeling for the flag and screw anybody who have a problem with that,” he said. “My grandmother was a immigrant from the Caribbean and worked her ass off the right way. She had no money and educated herself to be a nurse. She’s living good now.”
Tuitt joins a very short list of professional athletes, including San Francisco Giants Relief Pitcher Sam Coonrod, who have broken from the liberal groupthink. Last Thursday, Coonrod was the only player who didn’t kneel during a Giants and Dodgers game.
Also I’m not kneeling for the flag and screw anybody who have a problem with that. My grandmother was a immigrant from the Carribean and age worked her ass off to bring 20 people over the right way. She had no money and educated herself to be a nurse. She living good now.
