President Obama attended and spoke at the Newtown memorial for the victims of the Sandy Hook shooting, Sunday night, as the NBC network didn't show most of the 1st quarter of the New England Patriots-San Fransisco 49ers match-up due to the President speech (below).As NBC News took over the 1st-quarter of the Patriots-49ers match-up to show the President speech, some football fans took to Twitter to voice their anger over the fact that they were missing out on the Sunday Night Football action. Some even got RACIAL, as they voiced their "outrage" at President Obama (below).Forgetting the President was attending a memorial filled with families who lost their kids, sisters, brothers in a shooting at their school less than 48 hours earlier (on Friday), most began calling the President a n*gger and asking for NBC to show the game, which was taking place during President Obama speech at the memorial.It's a shame that most would act like IDIOTS as President Obama is standing alongside these families in their time in need.When President Obama was finished with his speech, NBC switched back to their coverage of football, as 49ers were up 7-0 against the Patriots. The 49ers would end up beating the Patriots 41-34.
