With the New Orleans Saints facing a potential team-defining moment last week as they reacted to controversial comments from quarterback Drew Brees, a celebrity source provided his perspective. Apparently, he can't deal with somebody displaying love for the nation that has given all of us a lot.
Although several NFL players have said they appreciated Drew Brees apologizing for equating kneeling during the national anthem with disrespect for the country, you won't get that same type of sentiment from Malik Jackson.
Some feel Brees caved to public pressure from teammates and much of the sporting world with his apology for his stance on protests against social injustice and police brutality. The former National Basketball Association star warned the team that the media will "try to divide you".
"I'm going to have a lot to say", Jackson said.

A further 55 people died after testing positive with the virus as of 5PM on Sunday, taking the total to 40,597. These were the details of the news COVID-19: Twitter backlash for WHO's confusing comment for this day.
"I said, 'Drew, let me break it down to you in a nutshell. Don't let social media divide you". In any event, it appears that NFL players want to protest this year and that the league has no plans to stop them.
"He started speaking and I was like, 'oh, s--, it's Shaq, '" the player told Fowler.
According to ESPN, O'Neal discussed on TNT his virtual visit with the Saints but didn't detail his contribution, per the request of Saints coach Sean Payton. The Saints' new safety thought it was necessary, and it may have in part led to Brees' series of apologies. "We can no longer use the flag to turn people away or distract them from the real issues that face our black communities". The three-time Finals MVP was traded to the Miami Heat in 2004 while Bryant re-signed for seven years with Los Angeles.
