Drew Brees apologized for saying that he viewed NFL anthem protests as disrespectful to the flag less than 24 hours after saying it, the first time.
Brees took to Instagram again to make his apology, but this time he made a video as opposed to writing.
Brees made his initial comments on the anthem protests on Wednesday in an interview with Yahoo Finance.
Given the civil unrest surrounding the death of George Floyd, Brees was asked what his thoughts would be if there was a resumption of the anthem protests that were so rampant in the 2016 and 2017 seasons.
“In an attempt to talk about respect, unity, and solidarity centered around the American flag and the national anthem, I made comments that were insensitive and completely missed the mark on the issues we are facing right now as a country,” Brees wrote.
