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鈥檚 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.

鈥淭his is unacceptable,鈥 Kate tweeted in reaction to the SportsCenter headline that said, 鈥淪everal Dolphins players, including Arian Foster, knelt during the national anthem.鈥 She added, 鈥淵ou should be proud to be an American. Especially on 9/11 when we should support each other.鈥

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

Some noted a certain icky irony鈥

And some were calling it like they see it鈥

Kate tried to clear things up, but it didn鈥檛 really help the sitch.
