Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been iced out of the league after began kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality.

Some potential halftime performers turned down the chance over Kaepernick's treatment. Cardi told The Associated Press (via Fox 5), "I got to sacrifice a lot of money to perform". A year ago she told TMZ that she wouldn't perform at the big game until Kaepernick was offered a job.

Author Kendra Alvey admitted she was keeping herself busy every Sunday, including the day of the big Super Bowl.

Fans across the entire spectrum yearned for a different game to be played.

Ariana Grande's 7 Rings shines at Number 1 for a second week
The singer has tried to fix the new tattoo after getting to learn that the tattoo did not display as to what she meant to say. Ariana Grande got new ink for her latest song, " 7 Rings ", but apparently screwed up the Japanese translation.

"I hear people saying like 'Oh, y'all are saying all this stuff about the Super Bowl, but you're doing all these parties,"' she said.

Despite the developments, Kaepernick's supporters proudly announced boycotts, promoted his charity and continued to condemn the NFL.

The singer, who reportedly declined performing in the halftime show in support of Colin Kaepernick, purposely skipped the big game on Sunday, but that didn't stop a fellow passenger on her plane from trying to tune in. "It's not worth it". Rapper Common, comedian Nick Cannon, film director Ava Duvernay and actress Jodie Turner-Smith were among the individuals to post a tweet including words of support for Kaepernick with the #ImWithKap hashtag. She is hosting a party this week and will also appear in a Super Bowl commercial. It also remains by far the single most watched American event of the year, making it a gold mine for advertisers. Most are attributing the lackluster broadcast numbers to a low-scoring game, a half time performance that generated little excitement. Need to find something black-affirming to do while it's on. "I'm changing the things I can not accept.' Dr. Angela Davis", Common tweeted, as well as posting two photos of himself with Davis, who wore a Kaepernick jersey personalized with the #ImWithKap tag.
