In response to supporters of President Donald Trump storming the Capitol building in Washington D.C. on Wednesday while lawmakers worked to certify President-elect Joe Biden's victory in the November election, the University of Kentucky's men's basketball team undertook an on-court protest on Saturday in which players and coaches kneeled during the national anthem.

The move by the players and coaches upset some among the Wildcats fanbase, including a local sheriff.

Sheriff John Root of Laurel County, Kentucky posted a video to Facebook on Sunday of himself and a jailer burning Kentucky T-shirts that commemorated some of the Final Four runs the program has made.
