Eric Reid picked up where he left off last season as a member of the San Francisco 49ers.
Reid, who signed with the Panthers a week ago, chose to kneel during the National Anthem prior to the start of the team’s Week 5 game against the New York Giants.
That decision seemed to upset some of the fans in Carolina Panthers fan base and they took to Twitter to voice their opinions on it:

with the new owner who thinks this is ok and then they signed this idiot, I am done with the Panthers. The new owner need to realize what area his team is located. I dont know who is the biggest idiot the new owner or reid.

Eric Reid is nothing but a piece of crap. Panthers management, you better get rid of this scumbag because I’m no longer watching the team. I’ve been a fan since 1995 and I am done

@Panthers I’m totally disgusted that Eric Reid knelt during National Anthem. He plays in the USA stand or leave this Country. Can’t believe you guys signed him. It has nothing to do with Police brutality. @NFL RELEASE ALL PLAYERS WHO WILL NOT STAND!! #imdone

@Panthers Eric Reid may have the right to disrespect the flag and anthem and I have the right to not watch or participate with the NFL. So I won’t.

@Panthers I hope you get Eric Reid under control! You guys said you were keeping it in the locker room… Looks like he decided to take a knee today for the National Anthem. Please dont let him ruin the Panthers!
