The first NFL cheerleader, from the 49ers, took a knee during the National Anthem, at the 49ers home game against the Oakland Raiders on Thursday.

A few moments after the National Anthem, NBC Bay Area report, Damian Trujillo, made a comment on the cheerleader’s decision. Fans and viewers alike were quick to voice an opinion on the cheerleader’s actions.

The news quickly spread on social media, with a heated discussion developing on Twitter.

The cheerleader still has yet to be identified and there has been no record of any statement made by any of the 49ers cheerleaders regarding the incident.

This is the first NFL cheerleader to kneel during the National Anthem but Georgia Tech dancer, Raianna Brown, became viral when she did this in 2017. There have been numerous collegiate dancers and cheerleaders to do this since Raianna originally did it.

The NFL has yet to release any statements about this situation and many are waiting to see if they ever will.
