Watch: LSU Snubs Their Noses at National Anthem, Then Got Hit with Instant Karma

There has undeniably been a noticeable  decline in athletes taking a knee during the national anthem. This form of "silent protest" seems to have lost its momentum, thankfully fading from the spotlight  since around 2016 when it gained widespread attention, largely propelled by the actions of disgraced NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

However, in a somewhat unexpected turn of events, the Louisiana State women's  basketball team opted to leave the court during the national anthem. Yet, their bold statement was met with a swift backlash from karma. The team faced a stunning defeat at the hands of Iowa in the NCAA  Tournament, effectively ending their season prematurely.

It appears their attempt to make grandiose  political statements has backfired spectacularly.


From Western Journal:

The Hawkeyes punched their ticket to the Final Four by knocking off LSU 94-87 in the eagerly awaited rematch of last year’s record-breaking national title game.

Iowa superstar guard Caitlin Clark scored a stunning 41 points to lead her team to victory at MVP Arena in Albany, New York.

Patriots on social media gleefully celebrated the Hawkeyes’ win, with many scornfully noting that the Tigers had skipped the national anthem before the game.

“This is the LSU women’s basketball team. They walked off the court during the National Anthem,” Libs of TikTok wrote on X.

“They just got CRUSHED by Iowa 94-87. LOVE TO SEE IT!”

Podcaster Benny Johnson posted, “LSU Women’s Basketball Team skipped the National Anthem. Iowa stood proud. … Let this be a lesson to all players: the cringy, selfish woke athlete moment is OVER.”

Others joined in, suggesting the Tigers got what they deserved with their disrespect of “The Star-Spangled Banner.“
