Cardi B refuses performance on Super Bowl Halftime Show to protest the NFL’s treatment of Colin Kaepernick

Written by Logical Men

Cardi B has recently refused to perform on the Super Bowl Show just because she believed that she had to stand up for Colin Kaepernick. She said that it was quite a lot of money lost after she refused to perform for the show, but still this was something worth giving a shit since the man sacrificed his job, and this was merely a small chunk of money lost on her part. Well, she stood for what she believed in, and she is being praised online for her decision.

This would have been a huge achievement for Cardi B, appearing on the show. However, this couldn’t have happened because in an interview the rapper revealed that she was offered a performance but she had to turn it down, this decision she took was largely because of the treatment offered to the Colin Kaepernick. She said that she had mixed feelings after she had declined to perform at Super Bowl 53 in Atlanta. According to the rapper, this was quite a difficult decision since her husband, rapper Offset, loved to watch football. But, she had to chose, she had to stand behind Kaepernick because of her stance for the minorities.

My husband, he loves football. His kids play football. It’s really hard for him. … He really wants to go to the Super Bowl, but he can’t go to the Super Bowl, because he’s got to stand for something. (as said by Cardi B, the rapper who had been nominated for five Grammys)

Kaepernick sues NFL

According to recent updates, Kaepernick is currently suing NFL for colluding to keep him from being signed to a team in order to keep Donald Trump happy. This is also worth knowing that Cardi B isn’t the first artist who opted out of the 2019 halftime show. Rihanna, according to some sources also did the same.
