All I see are the privileged few elite American soccer players not placing their hands over their hearts for their country that chose them to represent 🇺🇸. Nice👎🏼

Disrespecting the flag seems common place. But, it seemed disrespectful to this man who fought to enable us to have that freedom to do so. Thank you Mr. DuPre.

If you don’t feel the US represents your values and you want to protest by turning away from the flag, fine. That’s your right to do so. What confuses me is why you’d choose to represent that same country on a national level.
