Mattress Store Uses Kaepernick Jersey As Doormat

(CBS) – San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is opting not to stand during the national anthem. Now, one suburban store owner has a reply to the pro athlete.

CBS 2’s Vince Gerasole reports.

At a mattress store in Crestwood, owner Dave Gerwing isn’t taking the national discussion lying down.

“People have made the ultimate sacrifice. They have died for our freedoms,” he says. “Sitting down on your butt is nothing more than a disservice and disrespect to the people fighting for our rights.”

He’s talking about Kaepernick, an African-American player who has chosen not to stand during the “Star Spangled Banner” in protest to racial injustice.

“Does he have the right to protest? Absolutely,” Gerwing says. “The same way I have the right to put his jersey on the floor.”
