During a Los Angeles Lakers game, a woman was filmed throwing her drink on two men for kneeling during the national anthem. The video of her actions had gone viral.
The woman was identified as Haley Perea of California. In the clip, she is seen approaching two men who are seated and as she throws her drink on them. She yells, “Excuse me, this is for the national anthem you pieces of s**t.”
As they were walking away, you can hear one of them calling them “f******.”
Savannah Sugg, the woman who was recording the clip, posted to video to Twitter, writing, “Take a kneel for the land of the slaves. Disrespect our flag and our country and that’s how we’ll react.”
The tweet and both of their social media accounts have been deleted.
The video was taken after the national anthem and the two men had already taken their seats.
It is unclear what happened after the video cut off.
The two women were revealed to be students at California Baptist University. The identities of the two men are currently unknown and have not commented yet on the incident.
After the school learned about the incident, they sent out a statement on Sunday evening saying:
“While this was not an event affiliated with California Baptist University, two current CBU students were involved,” a university spokesperson wrote. “On Thursday morning, October 5, 2017, CBU learned of this incident and initiated an investigation and plans to take appropriate action. CBU does not condone or support the behavior depicted in the recording of the incident. CBU takes this matter very seriously and is cooperating with law enforcement and arena management.”
Before the tweet and the accounts were deleted, their actions sparked outrage among commenters with some calling for assault charges to be filed against the two females.
Other commenters were tweeting for Perea’s workplace to terminate her.
The kneeling was started by Kaepernick in 2016 as a form of peaceful protest. Then this year, other players continued with the act and Trump made it a nationwide phenomenon when he called for players who kneeled to be fired.
On Sunday, Pence walked out on an Indianapolis Colts vs. San Francisco 49ers game after player linked arms and knelt during the national anthem.
