🚨 POLL: Will you watch the NFL?

Just before the Kansas City Chiefs and the Houston Texans kicked off their game, they held a social justice moment, which has been deemed “moment of unity,” was met with heavy backlash from fans, according to BizPacReview.

The Kansas City crowd gathered for the NFL’s opening game of the 2020 season was met with boos from the crowd, likely a push for the NFL to keep to sports, and not politics.

Messages such as “It takes all of us” and “We believe Black lives matter” flashed on the screens as the players attempted to have a moment of silence for racial equality.

While the R&B duo Chloe X Halle performed the national anthem which was streamed on video screens in Arrowhead Stadium Thursday, the Houston Texans remained in their locker room and one Kansas City Chiefs player took a knee on the field.

As the Texans emerged through the tunnel onto the field after the song had ended, fans met them with boos. The reactions continued as members of both teams met and lined up on center field with interlocking arms.
