The Controversy surrounding the NFL protests is not showing any sign of stopping as in the recent events the Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office has now refused to buy the Ford Police vehicles since the company is supporting the NFL players who are protesting the united states national anthem. They said their action could help in forcing the Ford to cease their support for NFL with its advertising money.
In a letter addressed to Hixson Ford of Alexandria, Sheriff Julian Whittington said “Ford vehicles have been greatly utilized within the law enforcement community” but his department “will no longer purchase Ford products as long as Ford sides with these who have no regard for the men and women who protect and serve this great nation.”
Bossier Parish Sheriff said that he will not but any for vehicle for police until Fordcease it support. He said the players have right to protest national anthem and sheriff’s office also has right to spend where to spend its money and boycott ford.
Fox news reports that Ford has previously said “We respect individuals’ rights to precise their views, albeit they’re not ones we tend to share. that is a part of what makes America great.”
Ford’s scenario is especially fascinating because the Ford family owns the city Lions and owner Martha Firestone Ford has previously said “Thanks primarily to our players, the NFL … has been a unifying force in our country and impactful amendment has and hopefully can still be the results of peaceful expression, done thus so as to spotlight social injustices of all kind.”
She conjointly rebuffed President Trump by expression “Negative and disrespectful comments suggesting otherwise area unit contrary to the introduction principles of our country, and that we don’t support those comments or opinions.”
