Kaepernick has been an unsigned free agent since the end of the 2016 season, and that seems directly related to him kneeling during the national anthem to bring attention to social issues. "I kinda got two [crushes] between Rihanna and Nicki Minaj", he revealed to E!

The 30-year-old singer said no to the chance to take on of one of the most coveted gigs for music artists because she "supports Colin Kaepernick" according to Us Weekly.

"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color", Colin previously stated. In 2006, she created the Believe Foundation to help terminally ill children, has been supportive of charities helping to combat HIV/AIDs and cancer, and founded the Clara Lionel Foundation (CLF) in 2012, to help impoverished communities across the globe.

The 30-year-old "Umbrella" singer disagrees with the NFL's stance on kneeling during the national anthem, according to Us Weekly, and has chose to skip a performance opportunity at the February 2019 game. RIHANNA! WE NOW have YET another reason to love RiRi. Plus, the National Football League has turned the halftime show into a must-watch event for many.
