Colin Kaepernick Calls Out Jay Z for Sitting During the Super Bowl National Anthem


Last year Jay Z stunned his fan base after callously announcing we are "past kneeling" in defense of his new partnership with the NFL despite their continued blacklisting of quarterback Colin Kaepernick for kneeling during the National Anthem to bring awareness to unpunished police brutality in the Black community [click here if you missed that].

On Sunday Jay Z and Beyoncé remained seated during the National Anthem for Super Bowl LIV and Colin had something to say about it...

On Monday Colin shared a post from former NFL wife Miko Grimes where she posted the news about Jay and Bey sitting during the anthem with the caption, "I thought we were past kneeling, tho?."


Colin's girlfriend Nessa Diab also shared a post from director Ava DuVernay about Jay Z and the NFL co-opting Colin's movement and erasing him from it.

The world is past kneeling and sitting but how else will these two and jr. get anyone to mention them on game day? They are annoying and so full of themselves. FOH same shit they did at the award show to get someone talking about they champagne. When this shit blows over here come the family pics of the twins. Plz make em wait til that boy grows into his face.

Why did they go if they protested. If someone came along and blew some shit up they would stand with a flag as proud Americans. The whole beaded flag cornrows bit.

I wish they would all STFU! WTH has three years of kneeling from PAID "woke" players accomplished? What did the Carter's rich asses sitting down change? Colin and Ava can miss me with the fake woke bs, if the same NFL they don't agree with called Colin in 10 minutes and offered to pay him to be a part of ANY of their teams, he'd get off his bended knee in a millisecond!!

With "woke" Ava's encouragement, "Didn't this kneeling, "woke" player just try out for the same NFL he sued, doesn't want Jayz working for and is protesting against less than 3 months ago*? *November 2019*

All of these hypocrites need to hold hands while kneeling or sitting!!

Were they the ONLY people who did not stand? In the entire stadium they were the only ones? Or just who TMZ decided to focus on?

This is all for attention/publicity. Use some other venue for your self indulging needs, please. The flag represents FREEDOM to be who you want to be - in their case, millionaires!

I didn’t watch the super bowl. That’s the ultimate protest. Get into it Israel. (The real Israel not the fake Jews who say they are Jews but are not).

I agree with Kaep. You made a public stink about how we've moved on, but you do the exact same thing that he did, at a Super Bowl game. Are we moving on or nah?

Malika said...

I didn't watch either. I have no plans to watch again. Ever.

I hope he noticed that nobody kneeled, the Superbowl ratings went up and his ex teammates *even the ones that were #Team Kaep* still played in the Superbowl for the same EXACT NFL he got blackballed by and kneeled against.

His ex teammates that are #Team Kaep are kaepping in solidarity with him from afar while still getting paid by the NFL, like "sellout" (sc) Jay! I didn't watch the Superbowl because my team lost! The only thing that 3 years of kneeling did was cost him his job that he wants back and put him on the blackballed list! Whitey doesn't care if blacks don't watch, they got the support of ones that are playibg for them and making them richer!

Ava, got an opinion on everybody but her lesbomaster Oprah Winfrey. Hollywood people are fake and only speak out against the people who dont employ them. Colin is the same way. When is he gonna "kneel" for all those underpaid workers busting their asses in sweatshops for those basic ass Nikes???

I don't watch the super bowl, so no fucks given here.

@8:41 I agree with you.

However, I'm glad more people are falling out of love with Camel and Beyonce. This country is in trillions of dollars of student loan debt, the middle class is struggling more than ever, and opioid epidemic is killing loved ones. No one gives a fuck about a bunch of rich overpaid fucks who are only rich because dumb ass bored regular people invest so much money and attention into them.

We ALL need to get off the "Dummy Train", kids can't even: PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG, in school's anymore. Why(?) because a certain group of white folks felt it was an offense towards their beliefs. Yet blacks can't sit for theirs???
