Houston Texans superstar JJ Watt addressed NFL fans who are against the kneeling movement that is sweeping the league. Watt says it's not about "disrespecting" the American flag or the military.
In a tweet that has since been deleted, someone said he was "pretty sure" Watt would be kneeling during the anthem. Watt fired back, "Don't speak for me."
"If you still think it's about disrespecting the flag or our military, you clearly haven't been listening," Watt tweeted.
Texans coach Bill O'Brien said on Friday he will kneel with the team if they choose to do so.
At the beginning of June, Watt took to Instagram to post a lengthy post that began with: "Silence is unacceptable."

Silence is unacceptable. I spoke on the murder of George Floyd last week, but realize that my comments may not have made their way to Instagram/Facebook and I do not want the absence of those words to imply my silence on the subject. I personally believe that a social media post can only accomplish so much. Listening, learning, understanding and asking how we can help, accomplishes much more. When I first saw the video of George Floyd’s murder, I was disgusted and upset. In no simple terms, George Floyd should be alive right now. There were many ways in which the situation could have been remedied, all of which would have prevented his death. I have never had to feel that fear for my life. I have never had to experience a situation where I felt threatened simply because of the color of my skin. I can’t sit here and pretend to know what that feels like. But I can understand and acknowledge that it’s wrong and that nobody should ever feel discriminated against because of the color of their skin. Racism is a problem and silence won’t solve it. I certainly don’t have the answers, nor do I pretend to. But I do intend to listen, learn, understand and ask how I can help.
When guys like Bill O'Brien are on board with kneeling, will the woke NFL players still think it's cutting edge enough? You have to think they will come up with something more disrespectful when the time comes.
