Neal McCoy‘s song, “Take a Knee…My A$$,” is his answer to the NFL players who have chosen to take a knee during the national anthem in protest of racism and police brutality.
Neal McCoy says nothing should be protested during the anthem: “Just giving my stand on the protesting of anything, not just racial equality and justice, the protest of anything during the national anthem.”
The song has gained traction at digital retailers, but some of his fans are not on board with the message.
Neal McCoy says some fans have turned against him: “Some people on here that are saying, ‘Hey man, I loved your music, but now I hate you.’ And I’m like, dang, what about all that good music and fun we had at the shows and on the radio and stuff like that. Don’t hate me. You can say you dislike what I’m saying in this song. But oh well, that’s the way it is.”
