And the Best Super Bowl Ad Goes to...the Super Bowl?

Cardi B declined offer to perform at Super Bowl, cites support for Kaepernick

On February 3, during Super Bowl LIII, celebrity fans took to social media, using the trending hashtag #ImWithKap and expressed clearly their reasons for not watching. Cardi told The Associated Press (via Fox 5), "I got to sacrifice a lot of money to perform". However, he made global headlines after declining to stand for the United States national anthem in a pre-season match in 2016, as a way to protest the country's treatment of racial minorities.

An abandoned Atlanta building was ravaged by a fire about six months ago, but a mural featuring the image of Colin Kaepernick on one of its walls survived. Past year she told TMZ that she wouldn't perform at the big game until Kaepernick was offered a job.

Several cultural and sports icons also appear in the ad, including female youth football player Sam Gordon, veteran sports broadcaster Beth Mowins, the NFL's first female official Sarah Thomas, and popular Fortnite gamer Tyler "Ninja" Blevins.

About 2.6m people streamed last year's Super Bowl.

Charles M. Blow, a New York Times op-ed columnist, tweeted that he used to "have a small Super Bowl party every year", but the tradition was over.

Lena Waithe also shared the image of Davis wearing the jersey alongside a fist emoji.

While many famous people let it be known that they would not be tuning in to the big game to stand with Kaepernick, others who actually watched held no punches when it came to the halftime show. "And it's like, well, if the National Football League could benefit off from us, then I'm going to benefit off y'all".

It was thought that Maroon 5, who ended up headlining, reached out to more than a half-dozen stars to appear as featured guests but it because a poisoned chalice, with Variety branding it "music's least wanted gig". When Obama was around, I just feel like they were praying on the day when his eight years was over.

"When they see (how) the choices they made due to racism has affected the country, that's when things are going to start changing", Cardi B said.
