NFL star Colin Kaepernick was taken a knee to protest the increasing police violence against black people during the National Anthem in 2016.
After this point, many artists announced that they wouldn’t perform for the NFL Super Bowl halftime show and supported Colin Kaepernick. However, some artists did not approve of this.
During a recent conversation with Variety, Latin diva Jennifer Lopez has shared her thoughts about her upcoming Super Bowl performance with Shakira. She said:
“I think it’s important in this day and age for two Latin women to be standing on that stage — when Latinos are being treated a certain way in this country, or looked at a certain way — to show that we have a really specific and beautiful culture and worth and value, and we bring something to this country that’s necessary. I think that’s going to be an amazing moment. That night, I want it to be a celebration of who we are. All of us, because we’re in this together.”
Big Boi recently reacted to an internet troll who criticized him for his recent performance at NFL halftime show. Here’s the full of the statement. He stated previously:
“How you going to protest, and you’re still participating?. If Julian Edelman was the only motherf—er out there running routes, and it was no black players on the field, ain’t no way in hell I would’ve performed at the Super Bowl. But the city was there, everybody was there. You can’t just pick and choose and be selective.
You’re either all in or you’re all out … I’mma think for myself and I’mma do what I know what I wanna do. And do what’s right for me and my people.”
“You can’t selective and do a protest when it’s convenient for you.”
