Cardi B turned down Super Bowl show in support of Colin Kaepernick

Cardi B declined offer to perform at Super Bowl, cites support for Kaepernick

The Super Bowl LIII is taking place today and there will be Maroon 5 performing at the halftime and taking the center stage.

"I wish you would say, 'You're trash, you're too old, you're too slow, you can't get it done no more, '" Brady said. However, he made global headlines after declining to stand for the United States national anthem in a pre-season match in 2016, as a way to protest the country's treatment of racial minorities. Unfortunately, the star opted out in order to stand behind Kaepernick.

Kaepernick helped start a wave of protests by kneeling during the national anthem to raise awareness of police brutality, racial inequality and other social issues. When a mural of Kaepernick painted on the side of an abandoned building in Atlanta was demolished just days before the big game, outrage abounded, prompting a movement by local artists to replace it with eight new ones across the city, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

She pointed out in the interview on Good Morning America: 'I see how minorities struggle and for somebody to stand up for us we got to support.

"The only football player I'm checking for this weekend". I don't give a crap if you have a Hall of Fame bust, if you've been a Pro Bowler or win 20 Super Bowls.

"I just happened to be driving by when they were doing it and it took a minute for me to mentally recognize that it was happening", Williams said.

As you'll notice, the SpongeBob SquarePants song "Sweet Victory" wasn't part of the performance, which likely came as a disappointment to the more than one million people who signed a petition for Maroon 5 to play it as a tribute to SpongeBob creator Stephen Hillenburg. Why am I not going to take advantage of y'all and take money from y'all too?

In addition to some backstage footage of Steelers legend Franco Harris, we get to hear some dialogue from Giants quarterback Eli Manning, 49ers legends Joe Montana and Jerry Rice, and Deion Sanders.

In an interview with the Associated Press, the Grammy-nominated rapper revealed she had been offered the gig and had "mixed feelings" about turning it down. "Right now, they don't want to accept that their decision has affected the country".
