Kate Upton has been cancelled. The Sports Illustrated cover girl and supermodel took issue with Miami Dolphins players protesting by kneeling during the national anthem—the nerve.
Upton took to Twitter to express her disdain.
“This is unacceptable. You should be proud to be an American. Especially on 9/11 when we should support each other,” she tweeted while sharing a Sports Center story about the Dolphins players
It didn’t get past anyone that Upton has never said a damn thing about Black people being wrongly killed by police—what Kaepernick’s protest, and those he’s inspired, is about—so the slander was immediate.
Also, protesting and expressing your beliefs, no matter if it’s the “right” time or not, is as American as it gets.
Peep the potent, acute and necessary slander below and on the following pages. Props to Black Thought and El-P for keep it classy, but sharp.
