A female college student from California Baptist University tossed a drink on some black men who kneeled during the National Anthem at a Los Angeles Lakers preseason game on Oct. 4.
According to the Friendly Atheist, Haley Perea told the men: “Excuse me, this is for the National Anthem, you pieces of sh*t.”
Fellow student Savannah Sugg reportedly posted the video on Twitter with a caption: “‘Take a kneel [sic] for the land of the slaves.’ Disrespect the flag and our country and that’s how we’ll react.”
California Baptist University released a statement on the incident:
