#TakeAKnee refers to a hashtag used regarding United States President Donald Trump?s comments about controversial San Fransisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who infamously does not stand for the American National Anthem as a means of protest against racial inequality and police brutality. During a speech made in Alabama, Trump called Kaepernick a ?son of a bitch? who should be ?fired.? Many NFL officials, players and fans rallied around Kaepernick by issuing statements about the President?s comments and engaging in protest during games by taking a knee and/or locking arms during the national anthem, while others refused to leave the locker room during the song. Supporters of the president, however, said they would boycott the NFL over the controversy.
