Rihanna is kneeling with Kaep and She Turned Down the NFL Super Bowl Half Time Performance
Well it looks like Rihanna boycotted watching the Super Bowl yesterday and she did so in support of Colin Kaepernick. On Monday, RiRi took to her IG story and informed fans that she’s kneeling with Kaep, and not NFL. “For those of you who thought I was watching the Super Bowl… we beefin’,” she wrote.
Of course the IG story caught the attention of Colin, who decided to respond and show his appreciation for the Bad Gal. “I really appreciate @badgalriri keepin it 💯✊🏾,” Kaep wrote on IG a little while ago.
Rihanna’s boycott doesn’t come much of a surprise as she actually turned down this year’s halftime performance that Maroon 5 did. “They offered it to her, but she said no because of the kneeling controversy. She doesn’t agree with the NFL’s stance,” a close source revealed a few months ago.
Rihanna wasn’t the only celebrity to boycott the game for Kaep however. Artists like Common, Nick Cannon, Lena Wraithe, Ava DuVernay and others all stood with Kaep by not watching the game. It looks like it worked too as reports have suggested this year’s game was the lowest ratings for the Super Bowl in over a decade.
