There was a man who tried to tell Marshawn Lynch what to do. That man is no longer with us. Because no one—I repeat, no one—tells Marshawn Lynch what to do.

On Sunday, the Oakland Raiders were taking on the New England Patriots in Azteca Stadium in Mexico City, and the Raiders running back sat during the U.S. anthem and stood for the Mexican anthem, the New York Post reports.

Lynch hasn’t stood for the national anthem since joining the Raiders this season, and he probably will continue not to do so because Marshawn Lynch does what he wants and no one will say anything about it.

Marshawn Lynch is like a black honey badger. No one fucks with the black honey badger.

According to the Post, Lynch was one of six NFL players who protested racial injustice during the playing of the national anthem Sunday.

The Miami Dolphins’ Kenny Stills, Julius Thomas and Michael Thomas took a knee before their game against Tampa Bay. New York Giants defensive lineman Olivier Vernon also took a knee, as he has done most of the season.

Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters continues his protest of staying in the locker room while the anthem is played.
