Less than 10 members of the Philadelphia Eagles decided they would show up to the White House to take part in the festivities, but it would never come to that after President Donald Trump uninvited the entire organization. Come Tuesday, a bunch of so-called “Eagles fans” descended on the White House lawn for a replacement event that celebrated the military and the country. That was after a statement was sent out the day before, falsely stating that Eagles players kneeling and disrespecting the flag was the core reason for the initial cancellation.
Malcolm Jenkins felt as if the message was being railroaded once again by a false narrative that the Anthem protests were about the military, when it’s clearly about social injustices and police brutality to minorities.
On Wednesday, the Eagles safety didn’t speak to reporters. Rather, he held up cards to get his message out since his actual words were falling on deaf ears. Unfortunately, there were a bunch of people online who did not care. They proceeded to flood his mentions with disrespectful and racist twitter rants.
