[Celebrity News] BRONCOS’ BRANDON MARSHALL ENDS NATIONAL ANTHEM PROTEST … I’ll Stand from Now On
Denver Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall has decided to end his national anthem protest — and will STAND when the Star Spangled Banner is played for the rest of the season.
Marshall was one of the first NFL players to join Colin Kaepernick‘s protest — and said he would be taking a knee during the anthem to “raise awareness for social injustice and to start conversation about what all of us can do to make a positive change.”
Marshall explained his decision to call off the protest on Instagram before the Broncos vs. Raiders game Sunday night … saying:
“Going forward, I will be standing for the National Anthem — not because everything is perfect, or because I’m changing my stance on things. But because of my hope for what we can become.”
