Rainbow Six's Blackbeard seen on American Border wall report

The fictional Navy Seal from Siege appeared on a news report at the border wall between the USA and Mexico, as spotted online.

Univision Arizona, a news station in the US state of Arizona, recently reported on the border wall President Donald Trump is hoping to build. That's all well and good, but during said broadcast Blackbeard - an operator in Ubisoft's Rainbow Six: Siege - was seen as a background image, as spotted and shared on Reddit by user NotAaron147, showing a picture between the two news anchors, both of which are unaware that he's getting ready to counter peek them with his SR-25 and ballistic shields.

This had many viewers confused, mostly because Blackbeard isn't real, but here at Gamereactor we have more concerning questions. If Blackbeard is an offensive operator, why is he defending the US border? Is he patrolling parts of the wall that are already built, or is this operation taking place on a dust line? Have the people of Mexico attempted to contact Vigil so he can flank the American while on patrol?

Have you seen anyone from team rainbow in your area? Let us know in the comments.
