The Latest: NFL sponsor backs national anthem, free speech
A spokesman for key NFL sponsor Anheuser-Busch says the beer maker supports both the national anthem and freedom of speech.
Matt Kohan, senior director of marketing communications, says the company’s history of supporting the institutions and values that have made America strong includes “our armed forces and the national anthem, as well as diversity, equality and freedom of speech.”
Kohan says the controversy between President Donald Trump and protesting NFL players “touches on complex issues that require in-depth discussions and nuanced debate.”
