The Marietta Daily News reports:
A former Kennesaw State University cheerleader who took a knee during the national anthem at a KSU football game has been paid $145,000 in a subsequent out-of-court settlement, documents show.
Former KSU cheerleader Tommia Dean filed a lawsuit in 2018 after receiving backlash to her public protest with four other cheerleaders during the national anthem at a KSU football game in September 2017.
Dean has said that she and other cheerleaders were cut from the team after kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality in 2017. The university later allowed them to return to the team.
