San Francisco 49ers player Eric Reid weighed in on Vice President Mike Pence’s walkout stunt after some players kneeled during the anthem at the 49ers-Colts game saying, “this is what systemic oppression looks like.”

Reid said, “his looks like a P.R. stunt to me…This is what systemic oppression looks like.”

Pence’s stunt blew up in his face once journalists started tweeting that the media pool was not allowed to leave the van. That shows that this was a planned walkout on Pence’s part. Further, not to be outdone by anyone, Donald Trump tweeted that he told Pence to walk-out if any players took a knee.
