Rihanna Is Getting Called Out Because She Previously Boycotted The NFL Because Of Colin Kaepernick

Rihanna will headline the halftime show at Super Bowl LVII in February 2023, the NFL has announced. The nine-time Grammy Award-winning musician shared a photo on Instagram of herself holding an NFL football.

The NFL then announced that Rihanna would be the halftime performer on February 12 at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. You may recall that the NFL approached Rihanna to perform at the 2020 Super Bowl, but she turned her down for dealing with former quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

“I wouldn’t dare” Rihanna told Vogue in a 2019 interview. “For what? Who benefits? Not my people. I just couldn’t be a sellout. I couldn’t be an enabler. “There are things within this organization that I do not agree with at all and I had no intention of serving them in any way.”

Rihanna is called out for previously boycotting the NFL over Colin Kaepernick

To draw attention to racial injustice, Kaepernick frequently knelt during the playing of the national anthem during the 2016 football season. What made Rihanna reconsider? She probably won’t, which is why she’s being criticized online.

People on Twitter called out the hypocrisy, saying, “So I want all the people who smoked for Jay-Z after his deal with the NFL to have the same heat for Rihanna.” Remember that she was also Team Kaepernick. Funny how people have short memories.” “Rihanna’s Kaepernick/NFL boycott must have expired”, “A few years ago, Rihanna turned down the Super Bowl halftime show in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick and because she said she “can’t.” “Not a sellout.” But today she proudly announces that she will be helming this year’s show. Has anything changed in the NFL that I haven’t heard of?” and “Just 3 years after Rihanna said she wouldn’t dare perform at the Super Bowl to show her solidarity with Kaepernick, Rihanna confirms, that she will actually perform again.”
