Singer's Condemnation Of 'Take A Knee' Protests Backfires Hilariously

A country singer has released a song in opposition to the NFL protests in which players “take a knee” during the national anthem to draw attention to racism and police brutality. 

But Neal McCoy’s new tune might be getting attention for all the wrong reasons: its confusing title.

Take A Knee, My Ass (I Won’t Take A Knee)” brought out the grammar/music critics on Twitter.

Here is some of that reaction: 

McCoy told Fox News on Sunday that players have a right to take a knee, but “I just think it’s kind of a wrong time, wrong place kind of thing for me.”
