The 49-year-old former quarterback tweeted out that he “backed the blue” after a sniper opened fire during a Black Lives Matter protest last Thursday night and killed five officers.

“Sadly most police departments around the country don’t feel much support these days,” Aikman wrote.

Many of his followers said he was “in denial about police abuse and violence.”

Despite criticism, Aikman defended his original statement.
