September 6, 2017

It's no secret that Michael Bennett has been much talked about this season and the conversation about him is far from over. Early Wednesday morning the Seattle Seahawks defensive end took to Twitter to share what happened to him while in Las Vegas for the Mayweather / McGregor fight last month.

The Seahawks star has hired representation to investigate the incident. Michael Bennett, whose father served in the military, explains why he will continue to sit during the National Anthem.

"...I want to make sure that people understand I love the military...I love football like any other American. But I don't love segregation. I don't love riots. I don't love oppression. I don't love gender slander. And I just want to see people have equality that they deserve."

UPDATE: Video has surface of the incident.
