While Kerr said he understands those who may be offended by Kaepernick’s actions because it could be viewed as a slight to U.S. troops, he did not parse his words in agreeing with the San Francisco 49ers star’s message. Kerr was especially moved to speak out about the police killing of Terence Crutcher, the unarmed black father of four who was shown being gunned down despite having both hands in the air in a video that went viral this week.
“No matter what side of the spectrum you are on, I would hope that every American is disgusted with what is going on around the country, with what happened in Tulsa two days ago, Terence Crutcher,” Kerr said, later repeating himself. “It doesn’t matter what side you’re on, on the Kaepernick stuff, you better be disgusted about things that are happening.”
