Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice apologized for using the phrase “All Lives Matter” when commenting on Colin Kaepernick’s anthem protest in an August tweet.

The tweet he’s referring to read, “All lives matter. So much going on in this world today. Can we all just get along! Colin, I respect your stance but don’t disrespect the Flag.”

Rice, who initially criticized Kaepernick’s protest, did a 180 on the subject in September, saying he supported the 49ers’ quarterback for “bringing awareness for injustice.”
