Both Puff Daddy and the King of the South went to Instagram with strong support for the players.

Earlier in the day, rap mogul Irv Gotti let loose his thoughts on President Trump’s issue with players kneeling during the National Anthem.
Wow. This guy really don't give a fuck. If I was a black player in the NFL. There is no way you cannot feel a way after seeing this shit. Like all Colin Kaepernick did by kneeling on the National Anthem. Was bring to light that Innocent Black People are getting MURDERED by Police in America. And nothing happens. That was his message. Trumps message here is so crazy. We never had a president who cared so little about people. And is clearly a Racist Motherfucker. And is not afraid to show it. Which is making Racist people feel stronger and stronger. Roger Goodell and the NFL Owners need to say something. Or all the Black Players in the NFL need to do something. To show this piece of shit it's 2017. And US Niggas ain't having that shit like that. I told myself. No more political posts. But goddamn if this didn't make me feel a way. Like he just shitted on every black player in the NFL and basically said NIGGA STAY IN YOUR PLACE. #fucktrump AND #FUCKTHENFL IF THEY DONT DO SOMETHING. MAKING ME FEEL LIKE THE NFL IS A BIG PLANTATION FIELD. CRAZY. THATS WHY I LOVE THE NBA. ADAM SILVER I BELIEVE WOULD NOT ALLOW TRUMP TO SAY SHIT LIKE THIS ABOUT THE NBA. HE WOULD SAY SOMETHING. AND THE NBA PLAYERS WOULD NEVER LET SOME SHIT LIKE THIS SLIDE. NEVER. WHEN THEY FOUND OUT THAT THE LA CLIPPERS OWNER WAS RACIST. BANNED FOR LIFE. DONE. WAS DONE QUICK TOO. ROGER GOODELL IS WITH THE BULLSHIT.
Hahahaha! Did we expect anything different! The flag should definitely be respected… too bad Mr.Trump doesn't share the same passion for the people who lost their lives from a police officers gun! This isn't a BLACK OR WHITE THING! This is about being ignorant, blind and dumb/Donald! Don't want u to think I'm talking behind your back! @realdonaldtrump !!!! You too- @donaldjtrumpjr
This week, music superstar JAY-Z shared his thoughts on President Trump and the state of America.
“I believe that everything that happens in life happens is for your greatest good. I don’t think that this is happening if we weren’t prepared to handle it. So I’m just actually looking forward to what happens next after that because usually when things are darkest then light is on its way. I’m not fearful. I believe that we’re resilient. We’ve been, especially us as black people and especially the culture, we’ve been through so much more than this guy. This guy, I’m looking at him like, ‘Man, this is a joke.’ I can’t even say with all due respect, with all disrespect [laughs] um, yeah, I just think that he’s not a very sophisticated man especially when it comes to the ideas of, until everyone’s free, no one’s free. That’s just a fact. We are all linked some kind of way. You oppress a certain type of people, we’re all in danger – because if I’m being oppressed and you have this nice mansion – I’m coming inside there. That’s going to happen. That’s just how life is. On just a practical level that just makes sense.” (BBC Radio 1)
