Many have added their two cents about San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s national anthem protest, but is it really a national controversy if “South Park” doesn’t spoof it?
Those waiting for the Comedy Central show’s validation have had their wishes fulfilled.
“South Park” released a 30-second teaser on Monday making fun of the mixed reactions to Kaepernick’s protest. The teaser shows a crowd singing a song called “Cops Are Pigs” to the tune of the national anthem at a football game. The lyrics go a little something like this:
Colin Kaepernick is brave […] cops are pigs, cops are pigs
Wait, someone just took my stuff, I need to call the cops
Oh no, I just said ‘Cops are pigs’ […] who’s gonna help me get my stuff?
Why did I listen to Colin Kaepernick, he’s not even any good
Oh I just got my stuff back, cops are pigs again, cops are pigs
Colin Kaepernick’s a good backup […]
Athletes of all colors and sports are following the lead of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who has chosen not to stand during the national anthem in protest of racial injustice. The reactions to Kaepernick’s protest have been mixed, though it appears that his supporters include veterans, fellow athletes, former athletes, an entire football team, and even the President of the United States.
