Jim Brown Escapes Sunken Place, Says NFL Kneeling Protest Is Fine
It broke our heart when Jim Brown came out against NFL players taking a knee to protest racial injustice and police brutality. However, it seems like the NFL legend may have escaped the sunken place, for now.
The NFL legend had previously lashed out against the protesters back in August — saying, “I’m an American. I don’t desecrate my flag and my national anthem.”
But that was months ago … and when the Cleveland Browns icon was leaving Mastro’s Steakhouse in Bev Hills on Sunday, he wanted to make it clear he’s changed his tune.
“I think if [NFL players] wanted to kneel and it was within the rules of the game, it’s fine with me,” Brown said.
He added, “I really don’t want to speak for anyone else, and I don’t want to be negative about too many things.”
However, as far as we know Brown is still Team Trump, so there’s that.
Maybe he saw GQ‘s praise of Colin Kaepernick and saw the light?
