Conan had asked the former UC Berkeley football standout and Super Bowl champion his thoughts on the Colin Kaepernick-National Anthem drama.
Lynch responded with the following: “I’d rather see him take a knee than stand up and put his hands up, and get murdered.”
He went on: “I just hope people open up their eyes and see that there’s really a problem going on,” he said.
Eventually, Conan intervened to white-splain what Lynch had just said, and the audience applauded.
Lynch is a man of very few words, but this was a very lucid, and much-needed, condemnation of use-of-force by law enforcement. Hat tip, sir.
