National anthem protests have been taken to another level, and apparently one Los Angeles Lakers fan had seen enough on Friday night.

In a video shared by Shaun King, a woman walked down the aisle as two people were sitting, told them, ” Excuse me, this is the national anthem. Piece of s**t. F*****s,” and threw a drink on them.

She apparently deleted her account after the altercation, but the video still lives on.

This comes in the aftermath of Kobe Bryant admitting he would kneel if he were still playing.

The NBA rule states that players, coaches and trainers must all “stand respectfully” for the anthem, and teams “do not have the discretion to waive this rule.”

Some teams have stood with locked arms during the anthem during the preseason, but it will be interesting to monitor whether some stars decide to kneel once the regular season begins.
