American rock star John Mellencamp, the artist responsible for "Ain't That America," was seen sitting down and eating popcorn before the Indianapolis Colts-Philadelphia Eagles game Sunday.
A fan tweeted a photo of it and tagged Dan Dakich of Outkick. While everyone around him was standing with their hand over the heart, Mellencamp remained seated and kept enjoying his popcorn.

Mellencamp has never shied away from political statements to further his brand. He added a "take a knee" segment to his concerts. He claims the act was spontaneous.
“I’ve never planned anything in my life,” Mellencamp said to Billboard magazine. “Taking a knee felt like nothing. At the time, it felt like part of the performance. After the fact, I hope it made some kind of difference.”
Mellencamp ripped former President Donald Trump for his stance against players kneeling during the national anthem.
“Taking the knee started purely and simply as a protest of racial and social injustice,” Mellencamp told the Associated Press at the time.
“Sadly, it was politicized by the current administration. The song is simple and the protest is pure.”
