(KTLA) -- A picture of San Francisco 49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick's jersey being taped to a Virginia restaurant's floor is causing a stir online.

Virginia Beach resident James Perry said he walked into Krossroads Rock and Country Bar in the Pleasant Valley Shopping Center Thursday and saw the jersey at the front entrance.

"What went through my mind was like 'Wow, is this real or is it a joke?' How would you feel if someone taped a police officer's uniform down?" Perry asked.

Saturday, he took to social media posting this status:

Perry's post was shared more than 3,000 times in 24 hours.

He's asking people to boycott the bar.

But some customers are standing by the Krossroads.

"I was not offended by that," Carol Bevilacqua said. "I think we live in a free country. I think people are allowed to do what they want."

The general manager of the bar told News 3 taping the jersey down was about sportsmanship and Kaepernick's disrespect of the flag - not race.

Whatever the reason, Perry says the bar has now lost a longtime customer.
