A few hours ago, RiRi shut down any and all speculation about watching Sunday’s NFL championship game.
Back in October, comedian Amy Schumer applauded Rihanna for allegedly rejecting a Super Bowl halftime performance offer.
The same week, reports emerged about RiRi backing out of performing at Super Bowl LIII in support of Kaepernick.
“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 brutality and racial inequality.
