Maroon 5 has been booked as the halftime entertainment for this year’s Super Bowl, however reportedly, there were only pulled off the bench when the starting entertainment rejected the offer i.e. Bad Gal Riri.  Last week, Us Weekly reported that Rihanna was offered the opportunity to headline the halftime Super Bowl show but rejected the offer in a show of support for Colin Kaepernick.

“The NFL and CBS really wanted Rihanna to be next year’s performer in Atlanta,” the insider reveals. “They offered it to her, but she said no because of the kneeling controversy. She doesn’t agree with the NFL’s stance.” ~Us Weekly

It appears that Rihanna’s bold move may have lead to other celebrities standing with Colin Kaepernick.  Enter Amy Schumer.  Schumer posted on social media that she would not to appear in any Super Bowl commercials, adding that it “would be cool” if Maroon 5 followed suit with Rihanna.

I think its “cool” that protestors finally are learning that in this day and age, the way to garner attention is in the pocketbook and using their respective platforms accordingly. 

Biggup yourself Rihanna, you are way more than just a pretty girl, you’re a bad azz!
