The Houston Texans protested during the national anthem in response to team owner’s comments

They received a standing ovation.

After the owner of the NFL team the Houston Texans, Bob McNair, compared players who want to protest to prison inmates, even JAY-Z responded to the comments. When the players took to the field for a Sunday night game against the Seattle Seahawks, nearly all of the players kneeled during the national anthem. You can watch the video above.
