Michael Moore and other celebrities threw a fit Wednesday following the announcement about the new NFL anthem protest policy.

“Oh NFL! I love you! What better time to curtail free speech than during the National Anthem! USA! USA!! USA!!! Back in the USSA,” the 64-year-old filmmaker tweeted to his millions of fans.

The comment came following the decision by the NFL that states that players must either take the field and stand or stay in the locker room during the playing of the “Star Spangled Banner.” Those who join their teammates on the field and don’t stand will incur a fine for their club.
