At Sunday’s Seattle Seahawks and Tennessee Titans game the national anthem singer and her guitar player got down on one knee at the end of their performance. The crowd cheered as she did so.
The players from both teams decided to remain in their lockers rooms during the anthem in the wake of President Trump’s comments attacking NFL players who knelt during the anthem.
Both teams released statements announcing the decision and in support of their players.
The Pittsburgh Steelers also chose to remain in the team’s locker room during the national anthem, with the exception of one player: Army veteran Alejandro Villanueva, who plays offensive tackle for the Steelers.
Players from multiple NFL teams have been kneeling during the national anthem after Trump called for players who do so to be fired. Others have locked arms in solidarity.
