The goof troop came out in full effect Thursday night as the #BoycottNFL hashtag emerged after Denver Broncos player Brandon Marshall silently protested the national anthem.
In the first game of the 2016 NFL season, we saw a rematch of last season’s Super Bowl with the defending champion Denver Broncos taking on the runner-up Carolina Panthers. Color blind quarterback Cam Newton had a terrible game and his arch nemesis Von Miller rocked some Yeezy cleats on field. But neither one of them were the biggest story of the night.
That distinction goes to Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall who became the latest NFL player to join Colin Kaepernick‘s protest of the national anthem.
While it was a silent protest during what is usually the most boring part of the game, Marshall got plenty of attention from cameras and even more attention from “Americans” who were offended by his actions.
First, internet racists started attacking Marshall on Twitter calling him everything but a child of God.
