It appears that Saints fans are also fed up with Drew Brees.

On Wednesday during an interview with Yahoo Finance Brees caught a ton of backlash when he said NFL players who kneel during the anthem to protest police brutality are “disrespecting the flag”.

Several of Brees’ teammates have called him out on social media but it seems like fans are turning on him too.

Several hours after Brees’ comments, videos of Saints burning their Brees jerseys started popping up on Twitter and Facebook.

Brees is going to have to make good to the local fans and his teammates before the start of the season.
