A restaurant in Hudson, Wisconsin says they won't show NFL games this season because of the perceived disrespect to America kneeling for the flag gives them.
Mallory's took to the Facebook page to make the announcement while sharing a screenshot of a "Boycott NFL" Facebook group. They say that they will not show NFL games until players and coaches stand for the National Anthem as they perceive that to be disrespectful to America. They doubled down on their decision saying that they stand for what they believe in.
"Some people kneel for what they believe in .. we STAND for what we believe in. Please dine elsewhere if you don’t agree with ownership. America."
After posting, their Facebook post became flooded with almost 1,000 comments of all different opinions. The restaurant posted this in response to comments that asked to boycott the establishment.
"NFL players are of all races and backgrounds .. it’s a very diverse sport. I’m not sure how racism fits into this ? Choosing to not financially support or watch the NFL until they stand & respect the flag is a choice. America. If you choose not to support the restaurant because of this decision that’s your choice and we respect it. America. There are plenty of other places to watch the NFL .. and some people may just enjoy going to a place with no NFL on TV. America."
