Football fans yelling “Muslims suck” loudly interrupted a moment of silence for the victims of the attacks in Paris during a football game Sunday.
A handful of football fans at the Green Bay Packers vs. Detroit Lions game Sunday afternoon yelled the statement during what was supposed to be a moment of silent tribute to the 129 people murdered in Paris on Friday.
Just before the moment of silence ended, another man can be heard yelling “have some respect.”
Aaron Rodgers, the quarterback for the Green Bay Packers, was forced to comment on the outburst after the game, suggesting those type of “prejudicial” comments have contributed to current events.
“I must admit, though, I was very disappointed with whoever the fan was who made a comment that I thought was really inappropriate, during the moment of silence,” Rodgers told reporters.
“It’s that kind of prejudicial ideology that I think puts us in the position that we’re in today, as a world.”
The moment of silence during the Seattle Seahawks vs. Arizona Cardinals game Sunday night was also interrupted when some fans yelled “ISIS sucks.”
