Rihanna Turned Down Super Bowl Halftime Show - The Controversial Reason Why

Rihanna Declined Super Bowl Halftime Show Because of Colin Kaepernick

Here’s why Rihanna declined to headline the Super Bowl Halftime Show

Rihanna has declined to perform at the Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show in support of Colin Kaepernick, according to a report out Thursday.

This is how we ended up with Maroon 5. The league was plagued with National Anthem protests that season and in 2017. You probably guessed it - she "supports Colin Kaepernick", the source claims!

A source close to the singer reportedly told US Weekly magazine that Rihanna "does not agree with the NFL's stance". "They offered it to her, but she said no because of the kneeling controversy".

Kaepernick was one of the players who kneeled in protest of social injustice during the Star Spangled Banner American national anthem in 2016.

Rihanna is taking a knee with Kap. Whether it be good or bad, the ramifications of this act have been monumental and it seems that Rihanna declining to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show is the next domino to fall. He has filed a grievance against the league, accusing them of colluding to keep him off the field. There are also rumors that Cardi B and Travis Scott will join them during the performance at Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium on February 3. I have to give her credit for saying "No" just like mentor Jay-Z did a year ago.
