VIRGINIA BEACH, VA (WWBT) -

A photo making the rounds on social media showing a jersey of NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick taped to the floor of a Virginia Beach restaurant has gotten the attention of the Internet.

The photo was posted on Facebook by James Perry of Virginia Beach, who said in his post that he found the jersey taped to the floor of Krossroads Rock and Country Bar in the Pleasant Valley shopping center in the city.

Kaepernick has made headlines in recent weeks after sitting through the national anthem and his plans to continue to do so as long as he feels is appropriate and until he sees significant progress — specifically when it comes to race relations in the United States, the Associated Press reports.

Perry posted the image to social media Saturday, where it has been shared more than 4,000 times.

Perry has asked people to boycott the business in his post.
