Supermodel Kate Upton doesn’t have any tolerance for NFL players disrespecting America.

Upton posted a lengthy rant on Instagram for the 15-year anniversary of the 9/11 terrorists attack, and it directly went after NFL players refusing to stand for the national anthem. (RELATED: Team USA Hockey Coach Says He Will Bench Any Player That Sits During National Anthem)

She wrote the following:

In my opinion, the national anthem is a symbolic song about our country. It represents honoring the many brave men and women who sacrifice and have sacrificed their lives each and every single day to protect our freedom. Sitting or kneeling down during the national anthem is a disgrace to those people who have served and currently serve our country. Sitting down during the national anthem on September 11th is even more horrific. Protest all you want and use social media all you want. However, during the nearly two minutes when that song is playing, I believe everyone should put their hands on their heart and be proud of our country for we are all truly blessed. Recent history has shown that it is a place where anyone no matter what race or gender has the potential to become President of the United States. We live in the most special place in the world and should be thankful. After the song is over, I would encourage everyone to please use the podium they have, stand up for their beliefs, and make America a better place. The rebuilding of battery park and the freedom tower demonstrates that amazing things can be done in this country when we work together towards a common goal. It is a shame how quickly we have forgotten this as a society. Today we are more divided then ever before. I could never imagine multiple people sitting down during the national anthem on the September 11th anniversary. The lessons of 911 should teach us that if we come together, the world can be a better and more peaceful place #neverforget.

Several more NFL players have joined San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in his protest of America and the national anthem because he thinks minorities are oppressed.

It appears that the NFL’s problem with players refusing to stand won’t end anytime soon.
