Virginia bar facing threats after using Kaepernick jersey as a doormat

Backup NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick has evoked passionate reactions of both support and opposition through his decision to protest police misconduct by refusing to stand during the national anthem.

At one Virginia business, disdain for the 49ers player is evident upon walking through the door.

Awaiting patrons of Virginia Beach’s Krossroads Rock and Country Bar is a Kaepernick jersey duct-taped to the floor to be used as a doormat.

While the gesture earned praise online from many social-media users offended by the ongoing protest, plenty of critics advocated boycotting the bar — or worse.

One Facebook user expressed his desire to steal the jersey from the restaurant’s owners, prompting his friend to insist that “the sucker in them will comply without incident.”

Krossroads joined several other establishments across the nation in making the controversial public statement.

While Kaepernick jerseys have been flying off the shelves over the past several weeks, more than a few of the buyers have spent their money to burn or otherwise destroy them.
