Only MLB Kneeler Gets Refused Service For His Kneeling, Claims He's Victim Of 'Racial Profiling'

Baseball player Bruce Maxwell claims not being served by waiter over his protests is 'racial profiling'

The only Major League Baseball player to take a knee during the national anthem said a pro-Trump waiter would not serve him at a restaurant in his hometown of Harvest, Alabama. (Video below)

Oakland A’s catcher Bruce Maxwell told TMZ Sports about what happened to him after he kneeled in an anti-police protest.

Maxwell took a knee during the national anthem on Sept. 23.

Maxwell claimed he was “racially profiled” by being refused service. Although he didn’t say that the waiter wouldn’t serve him because of his race, but only mentioned his kneeling during the anthem.

“He denied us service at lunch. They had to get us another waiter to wait on our table,” Maxwell said.

“He was, ‘Oh. Yeah. You are that guy, huh?’” Maxwell said. “I was, ‘Excuse me?’ He said, ‘Yeah. You are the guy who took the knee. I voted for Trump. And I stand for everything he stands for.”

That's when Maxwell continued to suggest that he was being racially profiled.

“Unless you are subject to it, you won’t understand it,” Maxwell said. “I’m very respectful. I’m very educated. And it still happens to this day. That’s the reason why I’m kneeling. Stuff like that.”

The anti-police protests have not caught on in baseball.

Former MLB pitcher Ron Darling said the reason the protests in baseball were limited to just Maxwell was because the clubhouse is different in baseball than the NFL.

“Unless baseball’s clubhouses have changed since I played, and I know they haven’t, it’s a very conservative base,” Darling told the Mercury News.

In September, former MLB player David Winfield told TMZ that he thought the protests should continue.

"It's a new era -- new causes, new objections to the way things are ... it's a protest we should listen to," Winfield said. The Hall of Famer added, "Nothing changes overnight. Keep doing what you're doing."

Good for that waiter to not serve that anti- American. You are a major league baseball player. Less than 1/10 make it to major leagues. Making millions and you take an knee. Bruce Maxwell F-U!!!! Leave America. Where was your concern this past summer in Chicago? Over a hundread shot and 9 murdered? Where is your concern there with the black and hispanic genocide happening in Chicago? Second of all. In the major inner cities of this country which is made up of black and hispanics single prent income and majority on welfare some do work, but 98 percent of all violent crime in the inner city is commited by male blasck and hispanics and mainly males. Stats dont lie. Chicago proves that. So your bs racial profiling nonsense doesnt hold water. Oh what have you done for poor blacks and hispanics in this country, besides living in gated community? You are disgrace taking a knee when we have men dieing fighting these isis savages trying to bring death to America. Quit baseball if its so bad.

Ericvia, NO, YOU dont get it! This is not a protest, protesting a protest. Its simple disrespect and comes from the division that, for the most part, Obama created and the media has perpetuated. This country has never been this divided and its because idiots like this that keep this CRAP going. As long as it continues, we can never move ahead. So, if you agree with this asshat kneeling, YOU are part of the problem!

Is he really that stupid that he thinks this is racial the guy told him it was because he kneeled and from what I have seen the kneelers can be white or black or female. Everything is race and they have it appears no idea what a race is or what profiling is. I would have refused him service because he is too stupid to deserve it.
