Fans Mistake Garth Brooks’ Barry Sanders Jersey As An Endorsement Of Bernie Sanders

When country superstar Garth Brooks took the stage at a sold-out Ford Field in Detroit on Saturday, some fans were upset that he did so wearing a No. 20 “SANDERS” Lions football jersey.

But Brooks’ shirt wasn’t a political statement — it was a homage to Barry Sanders, a longtime Lion and one of the best running backs in NFL history. During Brooks’ concert, he told the Detroit crowd that he thought Sanders was the “greatest player in NFL history.”

But when Brooks posted a photo of the jersey on his Instagram earlier this week, dozens of fans thought the shirt was in support of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in the 2020 election.

Comments included:

– “Good grief. Can’t you just do what you get paid to do ???? Why why why does it have to involve politics !!! 🤢 So sad. We don’t pay good money for anything other than to watch you perform. 😡Thought you were different. 🤦‍♀️”
– “If that’s Bernie shirt I just lost a lot of respect for you!”

– “Glad to see Garth is feeling the Bern!”
