Jay Z Denies Protesting The National Anthem


On Super Bowl Sunday Jay Z and Beyoncé raised eyebrows by remaining seated during the National Anthem despite Jay Z's assertion that we're 'past kneeling' in regards to exiled NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick's kneeling during the National Anthem to bring awareness to unpunished police brutality in the Black community [click here if you missed that].

Jay sets the record straight calling the move unintentional....

During a panel at Columbia University Jay explained both he and Beyoncé were in 'artist mode' before the anthem, checking for sound and timing of the mics.

Jay insists,
"Sorry, It really wasn't [a protest]....What had happened was we get there and we immediately jump into artist mode..." 
"So now I'm just really looking at the show. Did the mics start? Was it too low to start? "

Weak bitch. Fake woke ass. Sellout coon. They need to both be cancelled. Don't stand for nothing (no pun intended).

This is America, where I have the right to sit or stand and I chose not to stand, would've been a better answer than that blatant lie!

He just followed the White people in his box. They didn't stand so Jay and Bey didn't stand. Had those White people stood, then they would have stood.

He's such a punk and he's making sure folks know that he ain't protesting shit. So glad he cleared up that misconception. Bitch.

Much ado about nothing.

"See, what had happened was ..." My ass. What does a mic check have to do with standing? So he's saying he was so distracted for all those minutes that it didn't occur to him to stand up? He has every right no to but just be real about it. This was the worst and longest excuse I've ever heard. He's such a lame.

I also notice how much higher pitched his voice is in this interview. No more bass. No more thug. No more snarl. Now he's regaling the crowd. So much charisma! Progress, I guess.

WE the people keep telling Ya'll these mf'ers was fake....but NAWWWWWWW, errr-body and they mommie just kept wanting to say the word, "HATER." They are opportunist who was hurt before just like everyone else has been but they had to show them/whoever that they missed out and made a big mistake, Beyonce's Lyndell and that son's mom Jay Z won't claim plus a pleather of others like MYA, Blu Cantrell, Nicole Scherzinger. You don't have to believe me again; plus who really cares. I just wish ya'll let real musical talented people get their chance. Thank you all for supporting a real musical prodigy singer/musician....H.E.R.

He sounds so FULL OF SHYT. I bet you won't find Trump back peddling and trying to explain his behavior during the national Anthem. They never address anything but THIS they address. Fake ass boss.

I have to repost two comments that were spot on about Superbowl

Why did Bey WASTE the opportunity to plug her Ivy Park Adidas line at the superbowl? Little Ivy was there too?
J, B, and Ivy should have had on that trash line just because its superbowl.
This "celb fam" is wack as hell...

ADIDAS you been put on NOTICE

This is a joke. Jay sold out his own people to get that job. Told all other blacks not to do the show to stand in unity, all the while he was going solo behind closed doors.

Once everything came out and he was called a coon, he now wants to 'sit' after he said we are past 'kneeling.'

He just wants other blacks to think he didn't sell out by 'sitting' during the national anthem. He's still a piece of shit in my book whether he sits, stands, kneels, or roll over on the floor. I'm done with him.

This was always about arrogance and didn't have shit to do with the pledge.
