Allan Jones pulls ads over NFL anthem protests
CLEVELAND, Tennessee (WDEF) – Cleveland entrepreneur Allan Jones is taking action on the NFL anthem protests.
He is pulling all adds for his companies, Check Into Cash, Buy Here Pay Here USA, and U.S. Money Shops off of all NFL games.
Hardwick Clothes will also institute an NFL ban.
A couple of years ago, the company provided suits for NBC announcers for Sunday Night Football.
On Wednesday, the Cleveland millionaire texted us this comment on his decision.
“When I see Colin Kaepernick lecturing the ‘oppressed’ wearing a Fidel Castro T shirt, you realize the hypocrisy to this stupidity. I love America. They have the right to protest and I have the right to turn off the channel and place our ads elsewhere. The next time someone asks the public to finance a stadium, this will have a very long term effect. These guys should really be the lead plaintiffs in the head injury cases-that’s the only jury that will find sympathy!”
