Fan in gorilla suit and 'All Lives Matter' shirt runs onto field during NFL game

A person wearing a gorilla suit and a tank top with the words "All Lives Matter" on it ran onto the field during a NFL game on Sunday.

The racist display happened during the fourth quarter of a game between the Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions at Soldier Field in Chicago.

The person was tackled by Soldier Field security and later arrested by police,according to Adam Jahns of the Chicago-Sun Times. The incident was only briefly captured by TV cameras.

This comes after weeks of protests in the NFL by players against racial inequality and police violence against black Americans, started by 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
