Pro Basketball Players Walk Off Court During National Anthem

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Members of the New York Liberty and Seattle Storm walked off the court during the national anthem on Saturday ahead of the WNBA’s season opener in what players said will be a season dedicated to honoring Breonna Taylor and other victims of social injustice.

Players from both teams walked back to their respective locker rooms during the national anthem and then held a brief moment of silence for Taylor, a 26-year-old Black woman who was fatally shot in March when Louisville police were conducting a no-knock warrant at her home related to a narcotics investigation.
