Supermodel Kate Upton Calls Out Dolphins Players For Kneeling During National Anthem

Supermodels (or regular models, for that matter) are not necessarily the people I would go to for their opinions on political matters, and make no mistake, the stunts NFL players have been pulling lately are absolutely political.

That’s why I was stunned when I read what super-hottie Kate Upton had to say about the Dolphins players who knelt during the national anthem in protest of… something. Flags? Songs? People with decency? I don’t know, they haven’t made that clear. They’re just kinda playing a bad game of “follow the leader.”


Let’s get a couple things straight, in this world, you get a pass for not being smart as long as you’re pretty and we all know it’s true. That’s what makes Upton’s grasp on the National Anthem even more interesting – because she doesn’t even need to think about it!

In an Instagram post, Upton stated the following:

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. The rebuilding of battery park and the freedom tower demonstrates that amazing things can be done in this country when we work together towards a common goal. It is a shame how quickly we have forgotten this as a society. Today we are more divided then ever before. I could never imagine multiple people sitting down during the national anthem on the September 11th anniversary. The lessons of 911 should teach us that if we come together, the world can be a better and more peaceful place #neverforget.

While there were a few people who didn’t agree with her statement…




… the overwhelming number of comments were extremely positive.




I love, love, LOVE this girl right now! Yes, she’s getting a lot of hate, but if you don’t have haters, you’re not saying anything worth listening to.
