Cubans criticized Cruz
The owner of Dallas Mavericks, Mark Cuban, commented on Twitter about players and professional athletes who were standing or kneeling during the national anthem.
Cubans tweeted “The national anthem police in this country are out of control. If you want to complain, complain to your boss and ask why they don’t play the national anthem every day before starting work.”
The Cuban social media post caught the attention of Texas Senator Ted Cruz, who replied “Really ??!? NBA tells everyone who stands for the flag, who honors our bulls and our veterans, that he should be” angry “? No less in Texas. Good luck with that.”
