Nation Anthem protestor Marshawn Lynch to get new reality show on Facebook

Marshawn Lynch is a NFL player who plays for the Oakland Raiders. I reported back in August that at the Oakland Raiders’ pre-season opener in Arizona, Marshawn Lynch didn’t stand during the National Anthem. He sat on a cooler eating a banana.

From my post:

Lynch previously backed Kaepernick, telling comedian Conan O’Brien in September 2016, “I’d rather see him take a knee than stand up, put his hands up and get murdered.”

“If you’re really not racist then you won’t see what he done, what he’s doing, as a threat to America, but just addressing a problem that we have,” Lynch said at the time.”

Facebook is rewarding him for his antics. Another show I won’t be watching.

From Seattle Times: Can’t get enough of Marshawn Lynch, the former Seattle Seahawks running back who now plays for some team in California? Well, you can soon watch him in a new reality show that will reportedly debut on Facebook’s recently launched Watch platformaccording to Reuters.

The news service reported that the social-media giant — which launched its new platform for U.S. users in August — is paying Time Warner’s Bleacher Report millions of dollars for the reality show featuring the Skittles-loving NFL player known as Beast Mode. The show, called “No Script,” consists of eight 10- to 15-minute mini-episodes featuring Lynch involved in various hijinks. The first episode will reportedly feature Lynch taking race-car driving lessons “until he ruins the tires of the car.”

Facebook’s purchase of the show, which will reportedly start streaming this month, underscores the intense battle among web-based media companies for original content and for viewers, Reuters reported.

“We think we have a big hit on our hands,” Rory Brown, president of Bleacher Report, told Reuters. “People are going to spend more time on Facebook because of it.”

  1. As far as I am concerned . . . he has proven to be a “nobody” for his antics during the pre-game activities . . . I am more than willing to relegate him to being a nobody in any other endeavor he enters.

  2. He looks like he’d be more at home in Haiti, holding a chicken.

  6. Reblogged this on joekiddone.wordpress.com and commented:

    Prior to Colin Kaepernick, the last high-profile individual to disrespect our flag and national anthem was Barack Obama.

    That is quite telling in view of Obama’s legacy showing he intended to divide us. https://www.facebook.com/notes/joe-kidd/words-and-actions-are-revealing/

    What is tragic irony is Marshawn Lynch and Kaepernick before failing to realize their “protests” are an admission and proof that eight years of Obama were an abject failure, and that ‘Hope and Change’ was a political slogan and never a course or goal that the former president set.

    • JoeKidd . . . every time I see a picture of Obummer failing to give honor to the flag of this nation . . . I feel such a major disgust. The greatest hoax ever perpetrated on this nation was his election to the Presidency.

    • Yep, most divisive “president” we’ve ever had foisted on us. He’s still there, stirring up hate.

  8. Our National Anthem was a poem written by an American citizen, Frances Scott Key, as he was held prisoner on a British ship in Baltimore Harbor during the British siege of Fort McHenry in the War of 1812…….our SECOND war against the British…Our first war (The Revolution) was to obtain freedom against the hereditory crown/government of the English Crown……and the second…this War of 1812, the same in the end…after clashes against land rights…upon the which the British expanded. THE Anthem asks ONE LONG question——- When I wake up in the morning…is MY FLAG still there? AM I STILL a citizen of the United States of America…or am I NOW a subject of the Crown of England…a subject of a King….?????? OR—am I a citizen living in a “FREE” world of a government of my CHOOSING?

    And so, I have NO sympathy, identification ,with those who take a “KNEE” during our National Anthem….which tells the story of our National emblem, our flag, during most stressful, perilous times….in which American citizens DIED to ensure (time and again…no matter color) that we could endure as a Republic…..evolve with the liberties that we TRY to extend to all…into this very day………b/c, IMO, they are dishonoring all the people who went before them, including the likes of Martin Luther King, in bringing this country into the rights and privileges we ALL enjoy today,,, by INCREMENTS, no matter color or creed…..day by day, LIBERTY is a process that our founders insured could COME to us all….even if they could NOT ensure it against the mores and practices of their times…..and for THAT we should be thankful instead of bitter and hideously judgmental….they SAW beyond and provided the verbage for it in our own Constitution at its base…no matter their own situational and historical circumstances in their lifetimes…..

    • CalGirl . . . Bravo! What a splendid addition to this article. I could not agree more. I think Our National Anthem is beautiful and I love to hear it. Probably next to it my favorite song is the Christmas favorite . . . “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day,” which was written during the Civil War. I never tire of hearing either of these songs. They are just magical. I truly believe that Our Heavenly Father inspired both of the men who penned the poems that became the songs, that they would comfort and inspire each of us.

  9. So despicable–I’d call it ‘deplorable’, but that would sully the good name of all American “Deplorables” everywhere, which also includes myself!

    I am now wondering what in the world he’s going to entitle his new Facebook ‘reality’ show.
    Maybe:
    “How Not To Succeed Without Really Trying”?
    Or, possibly:
    “How To End Up as a ‘Man Without a Country’ Without Really Trying”?
    Oh, I know:
    “How To Get Yourself Fired, While Costing Your Beloved Football Team A Ton In Lost Revenue In Lost Ticket Sales Without Really Trying”

    Anyway it’s sliced, though, I definitely won’t be tuning in, that’s for sure!
