RACINE, Wisc. -- The co-owners of a popular Racine restaurant are distancing themselves from a controversial statement posted Facebook stating NFL players who kneel during the national anthem should be executed.
"Kill the idiot players. Execute them. They are nothing but garbage. The league is screwed up if they think it is their right. It is their duty to respect our country and our flag. They should go kneel in front of a freight train. Shame on these stupid misfits of society. They need to die."
The post was deleted off the Facebook page, but multiple screenshots are still circulating on social media.
