A protester disrupted the national anthem during the Dallas Cowboys’ game on Sunday by shouting “Vote Republican” and “Stop Abortion.”
Video of the incident showed the unidentified man walking up and down the roof of the stadium’s field suites as fans stood with their hands over their hearts.
The protester held up a sign reading “Stop Abortion” on one side, and “Vote Republican” on the other.

The man was quickly escorted back to the stands by security, and he was reportedly not asked to leave the stadium.
The Hill notes:
A number of NFL players have come under fire, largely from conservatives, for kneeling during the anthem to protest racial inequality and police brutality.
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones took a hard line on the protests, which have stretched into the current season, saying earlier this year that his players would be required to stand during the anthem.
