DENVER (CBS4) – Ahead of his game against the Broncos, Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch was photographed wearing an anti-Donald Trump t-shirt.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted a photo of the shirt, which says “Everybody vs. Trump.”
Lynch has been a critic of President Donald Trump, protesting along with other players against what he sees as racial inequality in the country.
The protests began last year with then-49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall, but grew in size last weekend after President Donald Trump said players who take a knee should be fired by team owners. Trump repeated his opinion several times through week on camera and on Twitter.
“If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL, or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem. If not, YOU’RE FIRED,” Trump tweeted.
