Despite heavy criticism, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback continued with his protests, which many suspect was the primary reason behind his NFL exit the following year.Kaepernick’s ‘Take a knee’ protests have become prominent in 2020 since the Black Lives Matter movement gained momentum in the US after the death of George Floyd. Floyd, an African-American, was brutally murdered by a Minneapolis police officer. His death led to mass protests in the US and kickstarted the global movement against racism.For athletes looking to show solidarity with the movement, kneeling during the national anthem ahead of games has become a go-to option. Players in MLB, MLS and NBA have supported the movement by kneeling while wearing ‘Black Lives Matter’ shirts. It is believed that NFL players are planning to do the same when the 2020 season commences in September. Also Read | Buccaneers Rookie Wirfs Prepares To Do Part To Help BradyAlso Read | Dolphins’ 2017 3rd-round Pick Cordrea Tankersley Waived(Image Credits: Billy Corben Twitter Handle) The Navy SEALs have severed all ties with the National Navy SEAL Museum after a K-9 demonstration video went viral on social media which showed the dogs attacking a man wearing a Colin Kaepernick jersey.

Even the perception that our commitment to serving the men and women of this nation is applied unevenly is destructive.”The email, which was sent to the various departments of the US Defence force, stated that Navy SEALs will revisit the “relationship with the museum” when they are convinced that the National Navy SEAL Museum has made the necessary changes to ensure this act is not repeated again.  1 month ago ‘Suicide Squad’ director agrees with fan theory about Joker recruiting fake Harley Quinn Last Updated: 5th August, 2020 18:25 IST Navy SEALs Cut Ties With National Museum Over Colin Kaepernick K-9 Demonstration Video The Navy SEALs have severed ties with the National Navy SEAL Museum after their video went viral showing dogs attacking a man in Colin Kaepernick’s jersey.

The second piece of footage showed the dogs taking the man down, who can be heard saying, “Oh man, I will stand,” which was a jibe at Kaepernick’s protests during the 2016 NFL season. The Navy SEALs were quick to condemn the incident and launched an investigation into the same.
