After joining Colin Kaepernick’s protest against the anthem, Denver Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall, has officially been dropped from two companies sponsorship deals. CenturyLink and Air Academy Credit Union have decided to pull out of their endorsements last week, both releasing statements on the matter.

Colin Kaepernick had some words about this in his latest post-game interview stating things like “it’s embarrassing for those companies,” “they don’t believe in racial equality, and justice for all.”

The music mogul, Russell Simmons, got word of this and took to Instagram to announce that Marshall’s message is being heard. He also extended an endorsement deal for RushCard to the Broncos linebacker.
