Cultists Attack Garth Brooks Over Barry Sanders Jersey (Barry Sanders Is Ex-Detroit Lions Star Running Back)

The Hill reports:

Garth Brooks wore a Barry Sanders jersey to a recent concert in Detroit, leading to some of his online followers mistakenly believing the country music icon was showing support for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

Barry Sanders is a former NFL running back for the Detroit Lions who is now in the NFL Hall of Fame. Brooks, 58, is a graduate of Oklahoma State University, where Sanders won the Heisman trophy. Brooks also was a student-athlete, having attended OSU on a track scholarship.

The reaction to Brooks wearing a “Sanders” jersey prompted outrage on Instagram and Facebook, most of which seemingly coming from supporters of Trump.
