Fox News has apologized after players from the Philadelphia Eagles criticized the network for using footage of them kneeling in prayer during a report Monday night about national anthem protests.
Eagles tight end Zach Ertz called out Fox News on twitter Tuesday morning.
The footage was used as part of a report on President Donald Trump revoking the team's invitation to the White House after the Eagles said they planned to send a smaller group of players and not the whole team.
Trump claimed the cancelation was related to players protesting his stance on kneeling during the national anthem. However, the Eagles were one of only a few teams to not have any players kneel during the national anthem at all last season.
People were quick to point this out after Trump revoked his invitation.
The photos used in the Fox News segment actually showed Ertz and his teammates praying before a game.
Fox News @ Night executive producer Christopher Wallace apologized in a statement provided to USA TODAY Sports for showing "unrelated footage of players kneeling in prayer. To clarify, no members of the team knelt in protest during the national anthem throughout the regular or post-season last year."
