It appears Rihanna is standing with Kaep. On Thursday, reports surfaced that Rihanna turned down the NFL’s offer for her to perform at this year’s Super Bowl halftime show.
However, she declined in support of Kaepernick, (If you’re completely unaware) Kaepernick is the first player to kneel as the national anthem played at a game in protest over racial inequality and police brutality against black people and minorities in the United States.
Apparently after Rihanna turned down NFL’s offer, that’s when they asked Adam Levine & Maroon 5 to perform, which they happily accepted back in September.
After the protests, Kaepernick could not find a job for the 2017 season and sued the NFL, accusing owners of colluding to blackball him. He is still without a team.
