A person was apprehended after running on the field during an NFL game between the Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions. It’s unclear if the person, who was wearing a gorilla costume and a shirt that said “All Lives Matter,” was mocking certain political movements, or just out to disrupt the game.

“All Lives Matter” is a controversial rebuttal to the Black Lives Matter movement. BLM advocates point out that their movement is meant to focus on the unique risk faced by black people, who disproportionately lose their lives to police violence.

The gorilla suit could have been meant to mock those who say “All Lives Matter.”

It even could have been a reference to Harambe, the gorilla who was shot at the Cincinnati Zoo after a child fell in its enclosure. The back of the person’s t-shirt said “Put The Guns Down.” Harambe has experienced a strange afterlife as an internet meme, inspired by trolls who wanted to make fun of people who may have overreacted to Harambe’s death.
