Rihanna Turned Down Super Bowl Invite To Stand With Kaepernick 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Oct 9, 2019 5:58 pm

Rihanna turned down an invitation to perform at the Super Bowl earlier this year to show solidarity with Colin Kaepernick. Maroon 5 performed instead of Rihanna. 

\"I couldn\'t dare do that,\" Rihanna told the magazine in August. \"For what? Who gains from that? Not my people.

\"I just couldn\'t be a sellout. I couldn\'t be an enabler. There\'s things within that organization that I do not agree with at all, and I was not about to go and be of service to them in any way.\"

Kaepernick has not played in the NFL since 2016.

Do you think Rihanna would change her mind if she heard your gf was gonna watch?
