NBC News Asks Why NFL Cheerleaders Don’t Protest

NBC News disregarded the role [1] of NFL cheerleaders, asking why they don’t take a knee during the national anthem in solidarity with the players’ protests.

NFL cheerleaders are not compensated much for their work on the field and sidelines during games.

While they serve as the teams’ public relations ambassadors, they may take home just $100 per game. If they protested, it might cost them their cheerleading gig and reflect poorly on the team.
