US VP Pence walks out over NFL players' anthem protest

US Vice President Mike Pence walked out of a game on Sunday after NFL players knelt during the national anthem.

The kneeling has been a symbol of protest against racial injustice in the United States. Pence accused the players of disrespecting the national anthem but the VP has been accused of staging a political stunt against the players.
