RIHANNA has reportedly turned down to chance to perform at the Super Bowl half-time show in support of blacklisted former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
The Barbadian pop star is said to have been approached to perform at Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta in February, but turned down the opportunity in solidarity with Kaepernick, who has become an NFL outcast since protesting against racial injustice in the United States by kneeling during playing of the national anthem.
“The NFL and CBS really wanted Rihanna to be next year’s performer in Atlanta,” a source was quoted in US Weekly. “They offered it to her, but she said no because of the kneeling controversy. She doesn’t agree with the NFL’s stance.”
Kaepernick has been out of work since opting out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers last year, and is pursuing a legal case against the NFL over claims that owners have colluded not to sign him.
