A cheerleader for the San Francisco 49ers football team was seen kneeling during the National Anthem.

Fan Lenny Herrold said he captured the moment in a picture and posted it to social media.

“I’m just here for the game and I had no intention of doing anything divisive or doing anything you know important but all I did was take a picture and I just thought it was a cool moment,” Herrold said.

The post and others of the cheerleader kneeling spread quickly on social media.
