The Jets CEO Christopher Johnson stood arm-in-arm with his players today during the National Anthem in a show of unity with NFL Players.
““It was an honor and a privilege to stand arm-in-arm unified with our players during today’s National Anthem,” Johnson said in a statement. “We are very proud of our players and their strong commitment to work in our community to make a positive, constructive, and unifying impact.”
The National Anthem became an issue again, after President Donald Trump tweeted yesterday how all the players who don’t stand for the anthem should be fired. Numerous players in the NFL and NBA came out in defense of the players, as well as NFL owners and Commissioner Roger Goodell.
Ironically, Johnson became chairman and CEO after his brother, Woody Johnson was named ambassador to Great Britain by President Trump.
So far there has been no tweeted response by the Commander-in-Chief.
