Rihanna Reportedly Declined Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show Offer in Support of Colin Kaepernick

Rihanna was reportedly offered the headlining spot for 2019’s Super Bowl, but according to a report, she turned it down as a show of support for Colin Kaepernick. According to via Us Weekly: “The NFL and CBS really wanted Rihanna to be next year’s performer in Atlanta,” the insider reveals. “They offered it to her, but she said no because of the kneeling controversy. She doesn’t agree with the NFL’s stance.”

Kaepernick, who once admitted to having a crush on Rihanna, was the first NFL player to kneel during the national anthem in protest of police br-tality and r-cial inequality.

The former San Fransisco 49ers quarterback, 30, has not played since stirring controversy during the 2016 season. He filed a grievance against the league and its owners in November 2017, ac-using them of colluding to keep him off the field.

After Rihanna, 30, rebuffed the halftime offer, the NFL extended it to Maroon 5. Us Weekly broke the news in September that the Adam Levine-fronted pop-rock group gleefully accepted.

We appreciate her stance, but the world could use a Rihanna halftime show performance. It’s too bad the NFL can’t get it together.
