Not even a full day had gone by after the horrific shooting incident in Las Vegas during a country music concert that shook the nation, leaving as much as 59 people dead and hundreds injured. And instead of taking this as a wake up call to unite as Americans through these hard times, the NFL took the field this Monday night, and one player once again decided it would be a good idea to protest in times of crisis.
It is in times such as these that most people set politics aside and mourn the tragic loss of innocent American lives, but to many’s disappointment, some NFL players had problems grasping the concept of uniting, and kept pushing forward with their kneeling protests. The player responsible for this Monday’s fan outrage over the league protests was Marcus Peters from the Kansas City Chiefs, earning himself the nickname of second most-hated man in America, just behind the 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, who unleashed fire on the Las Vegas concertgoers.
Peters earned the backlash from the sports world by sitting during the playing of the national anthem, despite the horrific event in Las Vegas, and the most tragic thing is that a fellow teammate of his, tries to cover the cameras. But being burnt on a pass play against the Washington Redskins wasn’t the only downside for him this Monday, as following his disrespectful actions, people stormed the Social Media sites to show their disapproval and outrage over his disrespect:
On a day of tragedy when everyone should come together, Marcus Peters still acts like a piece of shit and sits for the anthem. Smh

There’s a 101% Marcus Peters doesn’t know what he’s sitting for. FYI this is the same guy who got kicked off his college team.
