“South Park” will mock Colin Kaepernick’s national anthem protest and Black Lives Matter in its season opener.
In a teaser clip released by Comedy Central, a crowd at a football game sings a Kaepernick-themed song to the tune of the national anthem.
“Cops are pigs, cops are pigs
Wait, someone just took my stuff, I need to call the cops
Oh no, I just said cops are pigs
Who’s gonna help me get my stuff?
Why did I listen to Colin Kaepernick
He’s not even any good
Oh, I just got all my stuff back
Cops are pigs again, cops are pigs
Colin Kaepernick’s a good backup”
During Monday night’s game agains the Los Angeles Rams, Kaepernick and his teammate Eric Reid kneeled during the performance of the national anthem. (RELATED: Ted Cruz Is Furious That Obama Defended Colin Kaepernick ‘Exercising His Constitutional Right’)
The San Francisco 49ers quarterback has fielded a wave of criticism since he decided to sit during the national anthem as a form of protest of police brutality and racial injustice in the United States. Many of his critics have seen it as an affront to the military.
