Gladys Knight Attacked Over Super Bowl Decision


This week Soul music icon Gladys Knight announced she would be singing the national anthem for Super Bowl LIII despite the ongoing boycott in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick who was blackballed by the NFL for kneeling during the national anthem to bring awareness to unchecked police brutality in the black community [click here if you missed that].

Fans beg Ms Knight to reconsider...

Fans have set it off in the Instagram comment section of Gladys Knight's post announcing her performance.

Serves her right and she deserves no less. She knows exactly what she’s doing. I was weaned on Gladys. I’m through with her now.

Gladys is a throwback old school coon.
God damn it Gladys, don't you have any shame. WOMAN!
Gladys must have burned through her money when she was gambling everyday.

Look at all the social media civil activists. I hate black twitter cause these fools think they doing something and they not doing shit. Are any of these "activists" tweeting thefootball players BEGGING them not to play and missing out on millions? *crickets*

The sad thing is you're not paid for doing this!

@11:46 Black Twitter is a wild place, but it can make or break a career and has produced social change. Mary Mary, Chrisette Michelle had to learn the hard way of getting off code.

Gladys cares about GLADYS!

This woman is 100 percent self absorbed. Conceited...

While eating at her Chicken and Waffles location downtown ( Atlanta) several years ago, me and my friend were told that Gladys was in the restaurant. We were told not to look at her or say anything to her if she walked through the dining area. Do not make eye contact. ( As if she's God.)

I looked at everybody else, but I can't look at her? Ok, Yeah. The way she ran that place got worse and worse over time. Not paying employees, long lines outside, silverware and plates not being cleaned...I do think Gladys has some money problems. She sold the Chicken and Waffles up the street from where I live on Cascade Road, too. The place is called Jay's now.

I honesty turned against her when I found out she was partying with Clive Davis downstairs while Whitney was upstairs in the bathtub.

Gladys has a history of making bad decisions. It didn't start with the Superbowl.

Didn't her son steal her money or mess up her restaurant. Gladys broke as hell and a old gambling addict fart. When you broke. Money talks. Bull shit walks. I know they sliding her a couple of Gs. Watch her ass get booed. SMDH. Sell out!

When our people learn there are NO black leaders we will cease to be disappointed in these sell outs and stop giving them a pass.
Who cares if they are elders or their mama died. PHuck all of them

I rarely watch football like that and the few times I've caught a glimpse the bulk of the people in the stands are usually White. So it's interesting to me that the majority of the people who are asked to, or agreed to perform are Black (Gladys, Travis and Big Boi) This begs the question, are Black artists the only ones that can sing the National Anthem and perform at the Super Bowl? Were Black performers targeted by the NFL? Did the NFL not ask any White celebs to sing the Anthem since it's clearly written BY them and FOR them? Or is it just that all the White artists turned them down?? I mean shit, even Rita Ora said no????

It just seems fishy to me that's all. So either there's an agenda by the NFL to target ignorant or complicit Black artists like Gladys to help further the divide, or they're hurting financially and will do anything for a check. It could even be both. But I'm buying her statement that this is about the anthem itself blah blah blah because there's no way Gladys didn't know Black Twitter, et al was gonna eat her ass up and spit her ass out over this shit. No freaking way!

The comments here are mind numbing. The grievance industry will never be happy or satisfied. Even with blacks and minorities representing every aspect of life around the globe. Most do so quietly and professionally. Like the former head of global design for GM motors, like the head of American Express, leaders in government, medicine, academia, U.S. Treasury Dept, former black Prez. Represent like you always have Gladys. With dignity, pride and never relinquishing the opportunity to use you God given gift and power of song to resonate with even those who are jealous, clueless or otherwise.

Take your sermon over to Pat Robinson's 700 clubs. We don't give a shit about sell-outs like Gladys,or Obama. There is NO dignity in being a buck dancing coon. Black folks will be so much better off when all the sell-outs die off.

but aren't the other players who aren't kneeling sell outs too? Wheres the hatred for them? They making 10 times what Gladys is making.

How long has Colin been outta the game? Why now? Why all of a sudden is this year the year folks start complaining? No one complained when Beyonce performed twice or when Bruno and Gaga performed. I love my people, but y'all only got all up in your feelings when Rihanna declined to perform. On top of that, the same folks complaining are the same folks who watch football weekly and will be watching on Superbowl Sunday.
