2 women Sugg/Perea throws drink On Lakers Fans For Kneeling During Anthem. (See Video)
The drama over the National Anthem has entered the NBA stands.
Two Los Angeles Laker fans had a dark drink thrown on them after they kneeled during the national anthem. The incident was recorded on video. This occurred right before a preseason game at Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California. The victims have yet to be identified.
Shaun King, a columnist for the New York Daily News, unleashed the footage on Friday. The footage was posted on Twitter by the friend of the suspect. In the video, the woman can be heard saying, "This is for the national anthem you piece of sh*t," right before hurling her soft drink on the two unsuspecting Laker fans. Twitter detectives have revealed that the names of the women who threw the drink were Haley Sugg and Savannah Perea.
On Haley Sugg's Twitter, she bragged tweeting, “’Take a kneel for the land of the slaves.' Disrespect the flag and our country and that’s how we’ll react.” The NBA has yet to comment on the incident.
It doesn't seem that the unrest between those who stand for the anthem and those who kneel for it will end anytime soon.
