In a shocking incident, a football fan in the US who attended the National Football League (NFL) game on Sunday yelled out ‘Muslims suck!’ during a moment of silence for the victims of the deadly Paris attacks.
Ahead of Sunday’s Lions–Packers game at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin, the Packers held a moment of silence for the victims of the terrorist attacks in Paris.
However, one fan yelled out ‘Muslims suck!’ and it echoed through the stadium. Following this, footballer Aaron Rodgers took severe exception to this and could be seen glaring in the direction of where the comment came from.
After the game, the Green Bay Packers team member spoke out against the fan, “I must admit though I was very disappointed with whoever the fan was that made a comment that I thought was really inappropriate during the moment of silence.”
“It’s that kind of prejudicial ideology that puts us in the position that we’re in today as a world,” he added.
Here are Rodgers’ comments:
Many took to Twitter commending Rodgers for speaking out against the fan.
