Let’s Talk About The Alleged ‘All Lives Matter Gorilla’ (Video)
On Sunday, a man ran through Soldier Field during a Chicago Bears’ game: He wore a full-body gorilla suit and an “All Lives Matter” t-shirt. These dude bolted around until stadium security tackled him.
It is pretty unlikely that the NFL will include the footage in official retrospectives, but here’s video taken from the stands:

And now the Cook County Sheriff’s Office has said that Angelo Graham is the man in the suit. Online jail records say the 31-year-old has been charged with criminal trespass to a place of public amusement, a Class 4 felony in Illinois. He remains in Cook County Jail in lieu of $250,000 bail, awaiting an October 11 court date.
Attempts to reach Graham at this time have been unsuccessful, and a possible motive for the Sunday incident remains mysterious.
