DETROIT (WXYZ) – A woman is speaking out about being put on social media, sitting down during the national anthem and being called the N word.
Stacey Graham is a Lions season ticket holder and a picture posted on social media of her at the game yesterday included the caption, “you wanna sit down for the national anthem? You don’t like out country the get the “F” outtt” It also included the words “Ignorant N’s” over the picture.
Stacey tells 7 Investigator Jim Kiertzner she’s been sitting out the national anthem since last year because she disagrees with the third verse of the song.
She also says she’s shocked at the post.
It was written by David Doptis who owns a business in Pontiac called Restaurant Liquidation Auctions. It is normally open on Mondays but was closed today.
Efforts to reach Doptis by home and at his home in Bloomfield Township were not successful.
