ABOVE VIDEO: Although she was born in Michigan, model and actress Kate Upton undoubtedly has Space Coast salt water in her blood. The pedigree of excellence is another component that’s helped make Kate Upton the undeniable success she has become, including appearing on the cover of Sports Illustrated three times.
“This is unacceptable. You should be proud to be an American. Especially on 9/11 when we should support each other.”
Former Brevard County resident and member of the Space Coast Sports Hall of Fame Kate Upton showed she is a true patriot with her brave tweet that denounced the callow NFL players who “protested” during the National Anthem before games on Sunday, which was the 15th anniversary of 9/11.
She said the player’s action was a “disgrace” on any regular day but “even more horrific” on the day more than 3,000 Americans were murdered during a Muslim terrorist attacks.
UPTON WENT ON TO SAY ON INSTAGRAM:
In my opinion, the national anthem is a symbolic song about our country. It represents honoring the many brave men and women who sacrifice and have sacrificed their lives each and every single day to protect our freedom.
Sitting or kneeling down during the national anthem is a disgrace to those people who have served and currently serve our country. Sitting down during the national anthem on September 11th is even more horrific.
Protest all you want and use social media all you want. However, during the nearly two minutes when that song is playing, I believe everyone should put their hands on their heart and be proud of our country for we are all truly blessed.
Recent history has shown that it is a place where anyone no matter what race or gender has the potential to become President of the United States. We live in the most special place in the world and should be thankful.
After the song is over, I would encourage everyone to please use the podium they have, stand up for their beliefs, and make America a better place.
This is unacceptable. You should be proud to be an American. Especially on 9/11 when we should support each other. https://t.co/qFozwaH9Bu
