A San Francisco 49ers cheerleader knelt yesterday during the national anthem. She is believed to be the first cheerleader to join the movement that Colin Kaepernick started back in 2016 against police brutality and social injustice against minorities.
The photographer, Lenny Herrold, who is just a fan of the 49ers, shared the image on Twitter as it has gone viral. The reactions have obviously been mixed depending on the stance against this issue, but for the past 24 hours or so, this has been the talk of social media.
More details to follow as this story continues to develop.
