An official investigation has been launched surrounding the Navy SEAL Museum after two videos went viral over the weekend. In the clips, a Colin Kaepernick jersey was used as a prop during a K-9 demonstration at a fundraiser at the museum in St. Lucie County, Florida, which is just outside of Fort Pierce.

One clip, which was originally posted last January, shows what appear to be Navy SEAL dogs attacking a man who has the NFL quarterback's jersey slung over his shoulders. As stated in the below tweet, the exercise used the man wearing the jersey as a "Colin Kaepernick stand-in."

A subsequent video then highlighted the same man with the Kaepernick jersey after being taken down by the German Shepherds. Afterward, he can seemingly be heard saying, "Oh man, I will stand."

Following the circulation of the short videos, the U.S. Navy SEALS, which are a separate entity from the Florida-based Navy SEAL Museum, issued a statement on Sunday.

"We became aware today of a video of a Navy SEAL Museum event posted last year with a military working dog demonstration. In the demonstration, the target is wearing a Colin Kaepernick jersey. The inherent message of this video is completely inconsistent with the values and ethos of Naval Special Warfare and the U.S. Navy," read the statement, which was posted to the official U.S. Navy SEALs Twitter account.

Continuing, it added, "We are investigating the matter fully, and initial indications are that there were no active-duty Navy personnel or equipment involved with this independent organization’s event."

The statement can be seen below.

The reference to standing in the second video is a nod to Kaepernick's decision to kneel during the national anthem at various NFL games beginning in 2016 during his time with the San Francisco 49ers, which was done as a way to protest social injustice and police brutality. While he has not played in an NFL game since 2016, Fox News notes that some called for Kaepernick's return after George Floyd's May 25 death.

Fox News reached out to the Navy SEAL Museum for comment but did not receive one by the time of publication.
