“If you don’t want to stand for the national anthem, you can line up over there by the fence and let our military personnel take a few shots at you since they’re taking shots for you,” the announcer said at the game, according to Denise Crowley-Whitfield who posted what happened on Facebook, the Alabama-based publication AL.com reported.

His remarks led to “crazy cheering” from the stands, as the local fans seemed to endorse his statement. However, not everyone was as enthusiastic regarding Joyner’s advice to those unwilling to stand during the national anthem.

“Patriotism should be a part of school events but threats of shooting people who aren’t patriotic, even in jest, have no place at a school,” Butler County Schools Superintendent Amy Bryan told AL.com. “Threats of violence are a violation of school policy and certainly not condoned by the school board.”
