Metro Detroit business owner loses Lions season tickets after racist post

DETROIT (WXYZ) - A man who used the N word in posts about a national anthem protest during a Detroit Lions game is no longer a season ticket member, a Lions representative confirmed.

Stacey Graham is a Lions season ticket holder and a picture posted on social media of her at the game Monday included the caption, “you wanna sit down for the national anthem? You don’t like out country the get the “F” outtt”  It also included the words “Ignorant N’s” over the picture. 

The post was written by David Doptis, who owns a business in Pontiac called Restaurant Liquidation Auctions. 

Graham tells 7 Investigator Jim Kiertzner she’s been sitting out the national anthem since last year because she disagrees with the third verse of the song.  

She also says she’s shocked at the post.  

Efforts to reach Doptis by home and at his home in Bloomfield Township were not successful.
