Seahawks fan verbally attacks players over national anthem protests - WARNING: GRAPHIC LANGUAGE

Seahawks fan verbally attacks players over national anthem protests - WARNING: GRAPHIC LANGUAGE

The woman's ugly rant was misguided.

As Thorpe and Tyson set idling in their vehicle, a woman unleashed a vulgar tirade at the players over NFL protests which have been going on across the league regarding social injustice and systemic racism.

'You done yet?' Tyson said before the end of the video.

"F-k off. I don't care whoever you are", she replies. All I care about is the fact that my tax dollars pay for you to play and go f****** play and get off your f****** knees'. Instead, opting to get on their knees and not properly represent the country which gave them the opportunity to play football.

One of the two players can be heard inquiring about the woman's name at one point, and she responded by asking the player who he was: 'I'm not telling you my f****** name. Josh is now a member of the FWAA and USBWA.

"You done yet?" one of the players asks.

A woman in a auto next to them wound her window down and told the pair to "stand up and be a man" and to "get off your little f-- knees and represent the [country] that made you what you are".

Cornerback Neiko Thorpe shared a video of the freaky incident on social media this week. Thorpe appeared in 14 games during the 2017 season, but he did not kneel during the anthem in any game. As a matter of fact, Tyson didn't even suit up for a game and was only on the team's roster for the final three weeks of the 2017 season after being promoted from the practice squad.

According to The Bleacher Report, during an NFL Network's Up to the Minute segment, sports analyst Ian Rapoport said that "it's pretty clear that Bennet's time with the Seahawks is up".
