On Monday President Trump announced the Philadelphia Eagles would not be invited to the White House for the visit that is traditional with most Super Bowl winners. Instead the White House hosted a "Celebration of America" event at the White House. While the anthem was being played, an unidentified anti-American man took a knee and caused even more of an uproar.

Jesper Zølck of TV2 in Denmark tweeted a photo of the man. He reported that the man left immediately after the anthem ended. Also, the man did not want to speak with the media.

Per The Hill:

Trump's "Celebration of America" event lasted roughly 10 minutes. It featured renditions of "The Star-Spangled Banner" and "God Bless America" by the United States Marine Band and the United States Army Chorus.

The event was planned after Trump on Monday night abruptly disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles from attending a White House celebration amid reports that less than 10 players planned to attend.

The White House blamed the team for the cancellation, calling their intention to send a small delegation a "political stunt."

Torrey Smith, a former member of the Eagles, fired back at the White House. He said there were "so many lies" when it comes to Trump's statement about the Eagles and their White House visit.
