I've seen too much racism at soccer matches to let this one slip as innocuous.

During the game today between the Detroit Lions and the Chicago Bears, a man ran out onto the field wearing a gorilla suit and an "All Lives Matter" shirt.

While it's hard to pinpoint the exact meaning of the shirt, which said "Put the Guns Down" on the back, and the gorilla getup—could be Harambe, could be Dada-ist bullshit—there's something not-so-subtly uncouth (and dare I say racist?) about the whole scenario. I've witnessed too much racism at soccer matches to let this one slip as innocuous.

Here's another look, from the broadcast.

How about this: just fucking don't, please.
