Prescott said he respects the players who have protested during the anthem, but he believes there is a better way to bring about a solution.

On social media and in news media, Prescott has taken heat for his unforgivable remarks. Prescott was recently depicted on a mural in Dallas as a character from the film “Get Out,” with a gasping, terrified look and tears falling from his eyes.

“Everybody has their own opinion,” Prescott said Sunday, regarding the mural.

Prescott said he is aware that the issue of protesting during the anthem has been a polarizing topic.

“That’s what controversial means,” he said, “and this is probably one of the most controversial topics we’ve had in the game since I’ve been in.”
