DirecTV viewers upset with the national anthem protests in the NFL can cancel their Sunday Ticket package subscriptions and receive refunds, per a report in The Wall Street Journal.

DirecTV and the National Football League declined to comment, but customer service representatives said refunds would be granted even though DirecTV does not typically allow them once the regular season has started.

Quarterback Colin Kaepernick started kneeling last year to protest police brutality and many NFL players followed his lead. President Donald Trump became a catalyst for the protest Friday when he told a crowd at a campaign rally in Alabama that NFL players who kneel should be fired.

"Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, 'Get that son of a b---- off the field right now, out, he's fired. He's fired,'" Trump said. "You know, some owner is going to do that. He's going to say, 'That guy that disrespects our flag, he's fired.' And that owner, they don't know it, [but] they'll be the most popular person in this country."

Some NFL teams last weekend in response chose to stay off the field altogether during the national anthem, while others knelt and locked arms.
