DirecTV Offering Refunds For NFL Sunday Ticket Because Of Players Kneeling During Anthem

Hundreds of thousands for football fans across the country were displeased with players kneeling during the National Anthem before their football Sunday. Those people can now seek refunds for the trouble.

According to The Wall Street Journal, DirecTV is allowing customers to cancel their subscriptions of its NFL Sunday Ticket package and receive a refund, citing players’ protests during national anthem.

Refunds typically aren’t given to customers once the season has started. But according to The Wall Street Journal, “representatives said they are making exceptions this season—which began in September—because of the controversy over the protests, in which players kneel or link arms during the national anthem.”

The Wall Street Journal cited two individuals who received refunds, one of which was a veteran from Wisconsin:

Charles Plavk, a veteran who resides in Wisconsin, cancelled his subscription to the channel from Charter Communications’ Spectrum Cable. He said when he called, the customer service representative said, “everybody’s calling about that today.”
NFL and DirecTV-parent AT&T Inc. spokesman did not respond to the WSJ’s requests for comment.

The news of the cancellations comes after a weekend where President Donald Trump said at a rally in Alabama that NFL players “disrespecting the flag” should be fired by owners. He also referred to them as “sons of bitches.” Trump also called for people to boycott the NFL.

It led to a Sunday filled with demonstrations across the league, where protests against inequality and police brutality were displayed, as well as messages of “unity” after Trump’s comments.
