German soccer players take a knee in support of NFL protests



A German soccer team linked arms and took a knee before a soccer match to show solidarity with NFL players in the United States.

“Hertha BSC stands for tolerance and responsibility! For a tolerant Berlin and an open-minded world, now and forevermore!” the club said on Twitter.

This comes after former quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, Colin Kaepernick took a knee last year to protest police brutality. Other NFL players and sports teams have joined Kaepernick protests.

President Donald Trump has repeatedly criticized NFL players for taking a knee, calling it "unacceptable."

As the players of the field took a knee, Hertha BSC's coaches and staff joined in on the sidelines.
