A Florida bar owner didn't take too kindly to Colin Kaepernick sitting out the national anthem.
Bill Alcock, owner of the Winners Circle Sportsbar & Grill in Lakeland put decals of Colin Kaepernick’s NFL jersey on the urinals on his washrooms. The catch is, they read “Kaeperdick” instead of “Kaepernick”.
He told WFLA that, “When the whole Colin Kaepernick thing came about, him not standing for the national anthem, I was kind of offended by it. My dad was a Marine. I just thought it was very, very disrespectful.”
The bar fully embraces being politically incorrect. Outside of it a sign reads, “This bar is politically incorrect. We say Merry Christmas, God Bless. We salute the flag and things like that.”
Customers like the idea. Mike Lee told WFLA, “I thought it was a pretty funny idea. If you don’t like it, there are several other stalls that you can choose from so you know. Don’t pee on it.”
While some still may not agree, Alcock is not backing down. If Kaepernick is going to disrespect the flag, others should be allowed to disrespect his jersey.
“I do believe in freedom of speech and everything like that, but it’s just a little message that you not disrespect the flag, and don’t disrespect our military. That’s what I think it is. This gives you a little chance to disrespect his jersey, a target of sorts,” Alcock said.
