America’s leading veterans service group claims the NFL censored their Super Bowl commercial because it criticized the league’s kneeling protests.

NFL Vice President of Communications Brian McCarthy released a statement saying the Super Bowl has “never been a place for advertising that could be considered by some as a political statement.”
In spite of this claim, last year’s Super Bowl game featured two controversial commercials, both attacking President Trump’s immigration policies.
