Last night, Luda went to Instagram and didn’t hold back on going off on the NFL. Cris said the NFL owed Kaep a much-needed apology nearly 4 years after he starting kneeling against police brutality before games.
A few nights ago, West Coast rapper G-Eazy went to Instagram and kept things fully 100 with his issues toward the NFL. G shared a throwback pic of himself hanging out with Colin Kaepernick and targeting the NFL, showing his support for him.
“All these years later I’m still with @kaepernick7 The @NFL should go further and apologize directly to him. We knew then and we know now exactly what he’s been fighting for – the important issues he’s been trying to bring attention to. The fight continues… #ImWithKap” -G-Eazy’s Instagram
Wait, There’s More
Since last week, the Internet has erupted with savage memes aimed at the NFL. People took specific aim at commissioner Roger Goodell not apologizing to Kaepernick in the Friday night video message.
Before You Go
Back in 2016, NFL free agent Colin Kaepernick sparked controversy by kneeling before games to protest police brutality. His actions ultimately made Kaepernick an outcast and use free agency as an opportunity to continue promoting Black Lives Matter.
The league’s statement makes no reference to former San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who has been the most visible protester within the NFL against police brutality and and racial inequality in the United States. Kaepernick began kneeling during the national anthem before games in 2016. The peaceful protest was intended to focus attention on police violence against minorities and social inequality. As Kaepernick’s protests gained momentum, it also drew the ire of President Trump and others, and eventually ended the Super Bowl quarterback’s career the next season. (NPR)
