US National Football Team Players Join Nationwide Protesting against Police Brutality


U.S. Men’s national team stars Weston McKennie, Tyler Adams, and Christian Pulisic passionately headlined an anti-police brutality campaign, as part of the nationwide response to George Floyd being killed in police custody.

McKennie claims he wants to start thinking about social problems and police violence in the U.S., with a recent video hosted by the Schalke star including a range of current and former USMNT stars.

“For far too long, this has happened. The community is now looking out for the police out there who tend to abuse their power. Enough is enough,” McKennie says as the video begins.

They were joined by Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger and Bayern Munich’s fullback Alphonso Davies.

Moreover, the video is not limited with American internationals, as Rudiger and Davies are accompanied by Thilo Kehrer from Paris Saint-Germain, Rabbi Matondo and Omar Mascrell from Schalke, and the Hertha from Berlin.

NBA stars Larry Nance Jr. and Cristiano Felicio, voicing the respective Cleveland Cavaliers and Chicago Bulls, participated as well.

Following on McKennie’s tweet, the midfielder included a link to support the Black Lives Matter movement.
