New England Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett hasn’t been afraid to speak his mind over social media since signing with the team earlier this year. On Election Day, he tweeted out his support of Hillary Clinton and following the results of Tuesday’s vote, he posted an emotional letter to his daughter on Instagram in response to the Trump victory.

"Daddy how will this effect my future?" Jett, I'm not totally sure my love. You'll be 7 in four years, you'll be in the 2nd grade. Your mom and I have a lot of work to do. We will continue to teach you How to love, accept others for who they are, think for yourself, help others in need, achieve what the world deem impossible. It's ok for you to color outside of the lines. I will continue to encourage other kids as well because they'll impact your future directly. The world will one day be all of yours, no time to wait training starts now. So unfold your arms and reach for the stars because if anyone can touch them it's you. Don't be afraid of your tomorrows, make the most of your todays. Training starts today. So stand up you're a GIANT!! You deserve a world full of color, wonder and dreams. Let's color the world together, your dreams are my dreams. Together we can be the change we wish to see in the universe. We have a lot of work to do, but I think we will have help.

Now Let's go! #theimaginationagency
Bennett was asked about the letter by the media, he stated that while playing a game for a living is fun, being a father is what really matters and his letter was meant to bring more “social unity” rather than divide people.
