Kate Upton Sparks Serious Backlash for Controversial Tweets on 9/11

Kate Upton may be best known for posing on magazine covers in various swimsuits (as well as her recent engagement to MLB pitcher Justin Verlander), but now she’s apparently waded into political waters. She recently voiced her opinion on NFL players choosing to kneel during the national anthem on 9/11, and some people were less than pleased.

“This is unacceptable,” Kate tweeted in reaction to the SportsCenter headline that said, “Several Dolphins players, including Arian Foster, knelt during the national anthem.” She added, “You should be proud to be an American. Especially on 9/11 when we should support each other.”

Whether you agree with her or not, Twitter was not having it.

Some noted a certain icky irony…

And some were calling it like they see it…

Kate tried to clear things up, but it didn’t really help the sitch.
