San Francisco Giants v Oakland Athletics

Major League Baseball has responded to fans who have complained about the San Francisco Giants kneeling during the national anthem Monday night.

One of the fans not happy about the kneeling tweeted to MLB: "the national anthem is sang for our military not our law enforcement firstly. You kneel, you're disrespecting our military. Yes, black lives matter but kneeling is showing complete disrespect to our men and women fighting for our freedom."

MLB responded to the tweet, writing "It has never been about the military or the flag. The players and coaches are using their platforms to peacefully protest."
