Batman Joins The #TakeTheKnee Protest Thanks To Francesco Francavilla

#TakeTheKnee refers to the silent protest being taken across the NFL in the US. Many players, starting famously with Colin Kapernick last season, have been taking to one knee during the National Anthem as it is played before games. The gesture is to protest racial injustice and police brutality. Donald Trump spent most of the weekend blasting players on Twitter saying they should be “suspended or fired” for disrespecting the flag and country by taking part. He also had this to say at a rally this week:

“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a b**** off the field right now. Out! He’s fired. He’s fired!’”

Games are kicking off all over the country as we speak, with many players taking a knee or locking arms in protest. Now, Batman has joined in. Any more heroes want to take part?
