Rihanna Declined Super Bowl Halftime Show in Support of Kaepernick

Rihanna definitely stand with Kaep.

Rihanna reportedly does not agree with the NFL's policy.

However, she declined the offer out of support for Colin Kaepernick, his kneeling protest of police brutality, and the NFL's policy in response. He hasn't played since the final game of the 2016 regular season.

Us Weekly reports a source said the popular singer disagrees with the NFL's national anthem policy.

The halftime show headliners will likely face more direct questions about their opinions on the NFL's treatment of Kaepernick as Super Bowl LIII approaches.




"I think it would be cool if @maroon5 backed out of super bowl like @badgalriri did", Schumer continued. Jay-Z reportedly turned down the Super Bowl halftime show and it was rumored to be in support of Kaepernick, according to the Los Angeles Times. Just when she walks in a room, people feel her presence'.

The 30-year-old "Umbrella" singer disagrees with the NFL's stance on kneeling during the national anthem, according to Us Weekly, and has made a decision to skip a performance opportunity at the February 2019 game.

'Pepsi, the National Football League and Cardi are all interested in her performing more than just her Girls Like You verse, ' the insider added.

While it appears Rihanna won't be involved, Cardi B may be a special guest during the show at Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium in early February.
