Williams, who lost his mother and four aunts to breast cancer was fined more than $5,700 by the NFL last week for wearing “Find the Cure” eye black.
Revealing that he was disappointed by the NFL’s mandate, Williams said, “It’s not just about October for me; it’s not just a month, it’s a lifestyle. It’s about getting women to recognize to get tested.”
ESPN’s Adam Schefter shared photos of the young girls Sunday decked out in pink.
“We wear PINK because our DADDY is not allowed,” the sign read. “The NFL Cannot Fine Us.”
