You may have seen this photo that was featured on a Facebook page allegedly supporting Donald Trump catching heat online.
A close inspection of Seahawk's defensive end Michael Bennett burning the flag would reveal a lack of authenticity.
But Trump supporters had selective vision and were incensed about the photo anyway.

I guess we'll find out if it's real or not, but either way, I'm totally done with NFL ...I hope they go bankrupt...— DeplorableVETRN🇺🇸 (@DeplorableVetrn) September 29, 2017
More than 200 players in the league refused to stand during the National Anthem in protest to racism in America after Trump criticized the movement initiated by former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
Although the Seahawks knelt in solidarity, Bennett did not burn the flag in the locker room after their September 24th game against the Tennessee Titans in Nashville.
I'm pretty sure the sprinklers would be going off if this was real. I'm done with the NFL even if it is photoshopped. Enough is enough— Shannon (@shannoneffects1) September 29, 2017
