Mattress Store Owner Uses Kaepernick Jersey as Floor Mat (Photos)


Wonder what Dave Gerwing has to say about Terence Crutcher being assassinated in the street by a cop?

Is he going to put a cop uniform down next?

At a mattress store in Crestwood, owner Dave Gerwing isn’t taking the national discussion lying down.

“People have made the ultimate sacrifice. They have died for our freedoms,” he says. “Sitting down on your butt is nothing more than a disservice and disrespect to the people fighting for our rights.”

He’s talking about Kaepernick, an African-American player who has chosen not to stand during the “Star Spangled Banner” in protest to racial injustice.

“Does he have the right to protest? Absolutely,” Gerwing says. “The same way I have the right to put his jersey on the floor.”

The difference is of course kneeling isn’t disrespectful, having someone wipe your feet on a jersey is.

Mr. Gerwing of course says he isn’t racist, but I’d advise never shopping at his store again. That would be “Beds, Beds, Beds” in Chicago if you needed the name.

Feel free to give them a call (708) 239-1320.
