Martellus Bennett and Devin McCourty of the New England Patriots have chosen to take a stand. Bennett and McCourty will not visit the White House to meet Donald Trump.

Both players revealed their desires to protest the annual trip where the Super Bowl champ meets the president. Bennett told reporters that he is not worried about disappointing the owner and coach of the Patriots who are supporters of Trump.

Bennett and McCourty caught backlash from Patriots fans who are displeased with their choice to boycott the White House visit. However, those same fans apparently did not care when Tom Brady snubbed President Barack Obama when the team won the Super Bowl in 2015.

Several Patriots fans reacted with negative feedback against Bennett and McCourty on social media.
