A former US soccer player working for Fox as an analyst deleted a tweet he posted saying that standing for the national anthem “takes courage.”

Alexi Lalas later also apologised for making the remark, and issued a statement clarifying that he supports those trying to bring attention to ‘the problems of police brutality and systemic racism’.

Following more than a dozen players in the National Women’s Soccer League taking a knee Saturday, Lalas wrote that “Now it takes courage to actually stand for the national anthem.”

He was immediately targeted for cancellation by the woke mob:

@AlexiLalas, nice to know your political opinions suck as bad as your soccer opinions. You’re garbage.

If this is your takeaway from the organized action by our players, you clearly haven’t been listening, Alexi.

While we’ve interacted with Alexi Lalas in the past, we cannot support or ignore his recent statements. It’s time to change our country fundamentally. Protagonist will no longer share our platform with Alexi and will be removing any appearances on our site or podcast feed.

Lalas immediately caved and issued an apology for his words:

Others had some keen advice for Lalas:

Here some advice: Never apologize to the Mob. Never!
