Video catches white woman harassing NFL players over anthem protest ‘Get off your knees!’
A woman deep in the sunken place followed two Seattle Seahawks football players to work Sunday and cursed them out over NFL protests during the national anthem.
Is this real life?
The undentified woman followed Seahawks Cornerback Neiko Thorpe defensive back Mike Tyson to the team facility and shouted expletives at them over the protests.
Does she even know if these two men even participate and kneel in protest?
One of the men, whipped out his cell phone and recorded her unhinged and unprovoked rant.
“… You can’t get up and be a man,” the woman says.
“You start your morning off like that?” one of the players asks.
“Get off your little [expletive] knees and not represent the [country] that made you what you are?” the woman says.
“What’s your name?” one of the players asks.
“I’m not telling you my [expletive] name,” she says. “What’s your name?”
“Big Mike,” Tyson says.
“[Expletive] off. I don’t care whoever you are. All I care about is the fact that my tax dollars pay for you to play and go [expletive] play. And get off your [expletive] knees,” she yells back.
“You done yet?” one of the players asks.
Can someone give this lady a lesson in economics?

The woman was not only out of line in following the two men to the Seattle Seahawks facility but she’s dead wrong about her tax dollars paying their salaries. The NFL and teams get their money from season-ticket holders, other paying customers, broadcast contracts and sponsors, said Bleacher Report.
If anything, her tax dollars likely helped build the stadium the Seattle Seahawks play in, but the Constitution also gives the men the freedom to protest if they choose to. Don’t mention one without mentioning the other.
Seattle Seahawks making changes?
Reports are circulating that Seattle Seahawks defensive player Michael Bennett may be approaching the end of his tenure on the NFL team—but for a reason completely unrelated to his performance on the field.
In 2016, the Michael Bennett was subject to a violent encounter with the Las Vegas police, after leaving a Floyd Mayweather fight. Bennett says that the officers threatened to “blow his head off” and he believed the police used excessive force and racially profiled him.
In August of 2017, Michael Bennett also explained why he chose to sit during The National Anthem. He hoped that his season-long protest would help raise awareness about racial injustice, like former San Francisco QB Colin Kaepernick.
According to The Bleacher Report, during an NFL Network’s Up to the Minute segment, sports analyst Ian Rapoport said that “it’s pretty clear that Bennet’s time with the Seahawks is up.”
“From what I understand, the Seahawks are looking to move him,” Rapoport said. “One of their core defensive players over the last several years. Production has been really no question here, but this is a team that’s trying to maybe quiet things down a little bit compared to over the last couple years.”
So essentially they want Michael Bennett to stop talking about issues that matter most to him and just play football.
And the Seattle Seahawks just released Richard Sherman, another .
