Shannon Sharpe calls out Ray Lewis and others for being hypocrites regarding Kaepernick

Shannon Sharpe called out Ray Lewis on air for taking a knee during the national anthem despite constantly blasting Colin Kaepernick for the protests that he spearheaded.

“I’m very disappointed in one of my very best friends, Ray Lewis,” Sharpe said on Monday. “Ray Lewis sat in that chair right there and said he could never kneel, he could never not stand for the national anthem because so many people died and he had family members that fight for this country … and the flag means so much to him and he kneeled. Not on one knee — on both knees. So what are you kneeling for?”

During Sunday’s Baltimore Ravens versus Jacksonville Jaguars game, Lewis knelt on both knees, but the story was completely different just a few months ago. Lewis said on his show that he disagreed with Kaepernick’s method of protesting, though not with the spirit of protest itself or with what he was protesting against.

“I’m 100 percent for racial justice, 100 percent,” Lewis said on “Undisputed” in July. “Trust me, I lived it myself. So you don’t have to convince me of that part. How he did it? Totally different thing. I don’t totally agree with that.”

Below is a clip from Lewis’ appearance on UNDISPUTED earlier this year.
