Supermodel Kate Upton gets involved in NFL anthem protest and it immediately goes viral

Sunday’s anti-American demonstration by some members of the Miami Dolphins was deemed “unacceptable” by popular supermodel Kate Upton, and her tweet went viral.

The practice of NFL players taking a knee during the playing of the national anthem spread to the Miami Dolphins matchup with the Seattle Seahawks Sunday — in the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attack that took nearly 3,000 American lives.

Conservative author and talk radio host Mark Levin said Friday that he thought the Seahawks would protest the “Star Spangled Banner” in that game — but it was the Dolphins who did it.

While their teammates stood tall and proud with their hand over their heart, four Dolphins took a knee.

Then the supermodel, who is the niece of Rep. Fred Upton, R-Michigan, added an exclamation point to drive mer message home.

Upton didn’t solely rely on Twitter to get her message across — she also took to Instagram — this time to show how it’s supposed to be done.

Her message got over 33 thousand likes. The Seahawks also demonstrated how to do it — they stood arm-in-arm in unity during the anthem.

And the Seahawks showed how it’s done on the field also — they won, 12-10.
