Jerry Rice has apologized for his “All lives matter” statement, which he tweeted while commenting on Colin Kaepernick’s national anthem protest.

Rice called it “my mistake”, acknowledging he didn’t know the phrase was widely viewed as a hostile response to the Black Lives Matter movement.

Rice initially came out against Kaepernick and the anthem protest when it began in August, tweeting: “All lives matter. So much going on in this world today.Can we all just get along! Colin,I respect your stance but don’t disrespect the Flag.” He’s since deleted it.
