cheap used cars in south jersey Bar puts Kaepernick jersey decals in urinals
LAKELAND, FL(WFLA) Before you even walk into Lakeland’sWinners Circle Sportsbar Grill,you’ll see owner Bill Alcock isn’t worried about being what he calls politically correct.
In fact, a sign hanging on the door says the opposite.
“When the whole ColinKaepernick 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,” Alcock said.
He decided toprotestin his ownway: by puttingdecals that resemble a mini Kaepernickjerseyin the urinals.
“Ijust thought it would be funny kind of tribute, non tribute to him,” Alcocksaid.
The jerseys have the number 7 on them and say Kaeperdck, instead of Kaepernick.
“I laughed, just like most people laughed,” customer Mike Lee said. “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.”
Photos are being shared onFacebook with people voicing their opinions for and against it. One person commented that Kaepernick shouldn’t be called a name for expressing his beliefs.
“Some people kind of agree with Kaepernick’sright to not stand for the national anthem because it’s a First Amendment right,” Lee said.
Alcock says this is hisFirst Amendment right.
“Ido 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,” hesaid.
