“One of America’s Great Frauds”: John Mellencamp SKEWERED for Sitting for National Anthem

Singer and songwriter John Mellencamp, the one who at least pretends to be a patriot and famously sang “Ain’t That America,” just found himself in hot water with non-pretend patriots after he was pictured sitting down for the national anthem as it played before the Indianapolis Colts and Philadelphia Eagles game on Sunday.


A fan snapped a picture of John Mellencamp sitting in the box and said:

@dandakich Can we get a comment on John Mellencamp being too lazy to STAND for our National Anthem

Dakich, a senior editor at Outkick, responded, saying:

Mellencamp is one of America’s Greatest Frauds…always has been

Others piled on as well, saying:

“I’ll tell you what, when I go to South Bend Cubs games, when the national anthem starts, everyone in line in concessions stops, turns toward the nearest flag, takes their hat off, puts hand over heart until the song is over AND colors have left the field.”


“Given his fans now see this also, I think he should issue some kind of statement. He has live & in-person events for 2023 scheduled. Without a statement, he looks like someone who couldn’t care less about our National Anthem. Not a great optic.”

“He was the “Honorary” speaker at my granddaughters college graduation held in the football stadium. He came to the podium and spit a wad of something out onto the ground next to a small flag staked in the ground. Classless”

“He has always hated American. That must be his spoiled son lounging behind him.”

“Total fraud – same with Springsteen”

“Dakich, Mellencamp, & Colts being frauds. Hard to tell people I’m from Indiana. Though I never was a Dakich or Colts fan. Not a Mellencamp fan as a person, but he has good music from back in the day.”


“Never liked him, his music and now may I add, his rudeness towards our country. Too bad he can’t share a Russian cell with the basketball player who did not stand for the US anthem.”

Others defended Mellencamp, saying:

“Anyone take a picture of the beer or concession lines during the anthem? Also, there are a LOT of people in that picture not standing, including a kid near him, what a horrible parent, right? But let’s be selective with our indignation.”

“People who still get upset about someone practicing their freedom of choice not to stand for that song baffle me…usually the “real patriots” crowd. ?”

“Who cares? It’s not that big of a deal, it’s a song at a sporting event ??‍♂️”

“There could be several different reasons why he didn’t stand up. Not that I agree with it, but he owes nobody an explanation. I know my husband, who is a disabled veteran, is unable to stand all the time, and it kills him when he can’t. Would you judge him as well?”

“The hypocrisy never ceases to amaze me. Conservatives are always pushing the constitution but criticize those who are exercising their constitutional rights.”

Some were just disgusted generally, saying. for example:

“Pretty embarrassing seeing how many others in that photo are sitting as well.”
