Restaurant uses Colin Kaepernick jersey as welcome mat

A picture of San Francisco 49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s jersey being taped to a local restaurant’s floor is causing a stir online. Virginia Beach resident James Perry said he walked into Krossroads Rock and Country Bar in the Pleasant Valley Shopping Center Thursday and saw the jersey at the front entrance.

Saturday, he took to social media posting this status:

**Some of the language used in the post below may be considered offensive**

"This is.what is taped to.the front entrance of kroosroads bars in va.beach,va located in pleasant valley shopping center on lynhaven parkway!!!now, would.we be wrong to.take a police officer uniform.to an.entrance of an.establishment? This young man is exercising his constitutional right and is being vilianize for.it!!! Didnt hit his wife,didnt r-pe nobody,didnt get caught abusing.dr-gs,or.get charged and cleared for.murdering two people!!!oh, and did not.shoot.any unarmed citizens!!!but yet his jersey is.used.as a foot mat!!! Racism.is real people and.yes this is a racist act...an overall disgusting one!!! Boycott this racist a** bar!"

“What went through my mind was like 'Wow, is this real or is it a joke?' How would you feel if someone taped a police officer’s uniform down?" Perry asked. Perry’s post was shared more than 3,000 times in 24 hours. He's asking people to boycott the bar.

But at least one customer is standing by the Krossroads. “I was not offended by that," Carol Bevilacqua said. "I think we live in a free country. I think people are allowed to do what they want.”

The general manager of the bar told News 3 taping the Kaepernick jersey down was about sportsmanship and Kaepernick's disrespect of the flag - not race.

Perry says the bar has now lost a longtime customer.
