New England Patriot’ tightend Marcellus Bennett has been receiving some backlash over his decision to skip his team’s visit to the White House in celebration of their Super Bowl 51 win.
Bennett told reporters following his team’s Super Bowl win that he was “not going to go,” to the team’s scheduled visit with Donald Trump.
Fan have since taken to social media to attack Bennett over his decision. But actress/major sports fan, Gabrielle Union, came to Bennett’s defense on Twitter by reminding one critic that another star player from the Patriots also skipped a White House visit in the past over his distaste of then President Obama.
Checkmate for Gabby!
