“I’ve never seen the Army, nor the National Guard,” said Doc Rivers, coach of the Philadelphia 76ers NBA basketball team.
“Can you imagine what would have happened if blacks stormed the Capitol?” All of that the way we have dealt with the pandemic, until now. It is a sad day. “
Soccer star Megan Rapinoe, gymnast Simon Biles, and several NBA, among others, expressed their dissatisfaction with the difference in performance on Twitter. Rapinoe has posted videos showing that the protesting Trump supporters – which, in her view, are terrorists – are not being obstructed by the guards. Olympic gymnastics champion Biles published the following text: “Shy but not surprised, nauseous but not surprised, sad but not surprised, angry but not surprised, speechless but not surprised.”
Meanwhile, the basketball players of the Milwaukee Bucks and Detroit Pistons kneel right after the jump ball that started their game. They repeated that symbolic protest gesture after the first change of ownership. In Phoenix, the Suns and Toronto Raptors players formed a pre-match team circuit due to dissatisfaction with what happened in Washington.
