The symbol of the popular protest against President Donald Trump floated among the crowds of college football fans in Tuscaloosa, Alabama on Saturday when he was attacked by a man, an event organizer told CNN.

At approximately 2:30 pm ET, before the coup d'etat from Alabama and the state of Louisiana, a stranger approached the balloon and stabbed it, according to Nic Gulas, one of the organizers of the presentation of the ball "Baby Trump" to the game. The balloon deflated after the injury, Gulas said.

"It was a random guy who ran to the balloon, stuck a knife and ran away, we had police nearby because of another driver earlier, so they went and stopped his driver and driver on the run, "Gulas told CNN via Twitter.

CNN solicited comments from the Tuscaloosa Police Department. The reason for the balloon attack is unknown.

The ball was about one kilometer from Bryant-Denny Stadium, where, according to the Associated Press, Crimson Tide and Tigers – two of the best university football teams – won a 46-41 victory for LSU. Trump attended the game and was cheered by the crowd during the third participation in a major sporting event over the past two weeks.
In anticipation of Trump's appearance, Gulas helped organize a $ 4,000 GoFundMe campaign to bring the "Baby Trump" ball into the game. The campaign raised $ 7,882 in two days.

Before the match, Gulas told CNN that the ball could be found at the corner of Hackberry Lane and 15th Street.

"So, the atmosphere is good, honestly put a lot of protesters in front of you, from time to time a car will shout," Trump 2020! "or" Keep America Great! ", but it's mostly positive," Gulas told CNN via Twitter.

A 20-foot balloon resembling President Trump made his appearance at the much-anticipated university football game between the University of Alabama and Louisiana State University.
The "Baby Trump" balloon literally gained momentum in July 2018 after being seen floating above the British Parliament for two hours during numerous protests against Trump's visit to the UK. Leo Murray, an activist who organized the release of the airship in London, told CNN that the giant balloon had been designed to speak to Trump "in a language that he understands, which is a personal insult".
Since then, the ball designed by Matt Bonner has appeared in many places, including New Jersey and Scotland.
