Steven Seagal Calls NFL Protests 'Disgusting' In Satellite Interview From Russia

The former movie star isn't happy with how he feels the NFL is treating America, and he wanted to tell everyone... from his chair in Moscow, Russia.

On Wednesday, Sept. 27, 2017, Steven Seagal appeared on Good Morning Britain via a satellite feed from Russia, where he was granted citizenship back in 2016 (via TMZ). "I believe in free speech. I believe that everyone's entitled to their own opinion," the 65-year-old said when discussing the National Football League's peaceful protests at recent football games. "But I don't agree they should hold the United States of America and the world hostage by picking a venue where people are tuning in to watch a football game and imposing their political views."

Interesting opinion, given that Russia's been accused of meddling in the United States' 2016 presidential election process.

"I think it's outrageous, I think it's a joke. It's disgusting," Seagal continued. "I respect the American flag and I myself have risked my life countless times for the American flag and I don't understand or agree with this kind of behavior. I think it's an outrage."

Once again, let us remind you... he's speaking directly from Russia—a country that's been suspected of rigging the election for President Donald Trump.

While we wait for Seagal to see the irony in his statements, read up on where the actor's been in recent years.
