Bill Belichick found himself in some hot water with social justice warriors last week for a T-shirt he wore while on vacation.
The New England Patriot’s coach was spotted wearing a green shirt with stick figure drawings of a soldier and, what appears to be, a terrorist.
The drawing showed the turban wearing terrorist being attacked by a dog while the soldier stood with his rifle.
The terrorist’s eyes were marked with “x’s,” which is the cartoon symbol for death, with the caption “life is great.”
A writer for the far left website Vice’s sub division Vice Sports, Sean Newell, panned the shirt as “pretty weird! Some might even say offensive.”
Boston Herald reporter Tom Shattuck said the shirt “shows Bill Belichick to be a true patriot.”
Civil rights activist Tariq Nasheed, who finds a way to relate everything to being anti-black, thought it resembled dogs attacking black men.

Then again, he thought a blue vest in the “War For the Planet of the Apes” movie was mocking Black Lives Matter.
The “Life is great” caption appears to mock another Boston company, “Life is Good,” which appears to market more towards the social justice crowd.
“If you are a military K-9 handler, then life is great! Celebrate the end of Osama Bin Laden with this T-shirt,” the description of the shirt read on the Trident K9 website, before the company removed the shirt.
Jim Amann, the CEO of the company and a former Navy SEAL who served in Iraq with a K9, told the Boston Herald that the shirt “tells a cartoon story of a deployment in Afghanistan where SEAL operators are chasing bad guys.”
The photo was shared on social media by a woman, Kathryn Mastromarino, whose friend ran into the Patriot’s coach in Nantucket.
