A PITCH invasion halted play in Thursday night’s NFL season opener.
A fan escaped security and protested during the Buffalo Bills’ win over the Los Angeles Rams.
The spectator was holding a pink flare as they protested.
And they caught the attention of the nation tuning in for the NFL season opener.
The incident happened in the fourth quarter at SoFi Stadium.
Footage from fans inside the stadium showed an activist being pursued by several security forces.
They were eventually knocked to the ground before the torch was thrown off the field.
The invasion was mentioned in the live broadcast on NBC.
TV cameras showed a flare being collected from one of the end zones.
It caused a brief disruption in the Bills’ dominant win over the reigning Super Bowl champion.
The protester wore a T-shirt that read “Right to Rescue”.
The website is a petition to help correct abuses in factory farming.
A reporter saw the pink flare and said, “Um, we just had a streaker or gender reveal on the field.”
