San Francisco 49ers cheerleader takes a knee before national anthem


SANTA CLARA, California – The NFL ‘take a knee’ controversy took a surprising turn during Thursday night’s match up between the San Francisco 49’ers and the LA Raiders.

A cheerleader for the 49’ers was standing in formation with the others when she suddenly took a knee as the national anthem was playing.

The cheerleader has not been identified.

Former 49’ers quarterback, Colin Kaepernick sparked the wave of protests two seasons ago when he took a knee to protest police brutality and racial inequality.

The 49’ers said they did not have a comment on the matter at this time.
