A man ran onto the pitch during Monday’s World Cup group-stage match between Portugal and Uruguay, holding up a rainbow flag to protest Qatar’s anti-LGBT laws. The activist, whose blue Superman T-shirt read “Save Ukraine” and “Respect for Iranian woman,” was chased by security officers across the field before he was grabbed and led away. According to Britain’s Daily Mail, he is Italian and has invaded pitches before, including at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. U.S. and European media outlets have criticized host Qatar’s human rights record.
