ECU Band Members Booed By Own Fans For Kneeling During Anthem (Video)
Who knew a few weeks ago when San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick sat and kneeled during the playing of the National Anthem, it would spark a movement around the country for others to join in as well.
At Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium on Saturday, East Carolina Pirates band members decided to show support for Kaepernick’s movement by kneeling during the Anthem, and they were promptly boo’d off the field by their home fans.
