Beto O’Rourke’s National Anthem speech has been making the rounds on social media since last week.
It has been shared countless times on various platforms and garnered the attention of athletes and celebrities.
Here is a list of those who have shared it.
LeBron James, NBA All-Star
Khalid, El Paso R&B singer
Colin Kaepernick, current NFL free agent
Kurt Warner, NFL Hall of Fame Quarterback
Every past & present fan of NFL – please listen – I believe he hit the nail on the head & he did so not by dividing the 2 sides but by joining them together in realizing the freedoms of our country have been forged by soldiers but also by many others who have fought in diff ways! https://t.co/zDxYgMAmAz— Kurt Warner (@kurt13warner) August 22, 2018
Tony Dungy, former NFL coach
Steve Kerr, Golden State Warriors coach
Ellen DeGeneres, talk show host
Abby Wambach, USA Soccer player
Reggie Bush, NFL running back
Kevin Bacon, actor
That’s not to say everyone is happy with his stance. Many have taken exception, including O’Rourke’s opponent for the Texas U.S. Senate seat, Ted Cruz.
Most Texans stand for the flag, but Hollywood liberals are so excited that Beto is siding with NFL players protesting the national anthem that Kevin Bacon just retweeted it. That means all of us us can now win Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon! https://t.co/8oWpL1AuyF— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) August 23, 2018
