Watch Kari Lake REFUSE To Stand Up For Black National Anthem At Super Bowl


Kari Lake was spotted at Super Bowl 57 in Arizona.

A recent photo of the Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate went viral when she sat down during the black national anthem.

If you didn’t know the NFL played two anthems this year.

The true national anthem which is the star-spangled banner and the “black” national anthem “Lift Every Voice and Sing.”

Look at Lake’s viral photo here:

Fox News had more on the story:

A photo of former Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake attending Super Bowl LVII has gone viral, but for reasons you might not expect.

The former news anchor turned GOP firebrand was seen sitting during the controversial playing of the Black national anthem ahead of the game, which took place Sunday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

A photo of her refusing to stand for the anthem was posted on social media and quickly sparked a frenzy of people praising her decision.

“Never been easier to be a hero these days,” wrote one user responding to the photo of Lake seated during the song.

Another Twitter user stated: “Good for her. No one should support this. It was created to divide the country.”

Newsweek got the scoop too:

Photos posted to social media show former Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake refusing to stand for the Black national anthem at the Super Bowl on Sunday.

Actress Sheryl Lee Ralph performed “Lift Every Voice and Sing” before Super Bowl LVII, pitting the Philadelphia Eagles against the Kansas City Chiefs at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. The song, written more than 100 years ago, became a rallying cry during the civil rights movement, and the NFL began including it in its games following the Black Lives Matter protests in 2020. The league has faced backlash over its inclusion from some conservatives.

Right-wing pundit Benny Johnson shared a photograph of Lake, who rose to national prominence during her bid to become Arizona’s top executive during the 2022 midterm elections, refusing to stand for the performance.
