The protests and the NFL's decision to seemingly blackball Kaepernick became one of the most divisive topics of the previous year.

Some potential halftime performers turned down the chance over Kaepernick's treatment.

As the Super Bowl neared, those championing Kaepernick only began to get louder. Kaepernick remains a free agent and a number of National Football League franchises have steered clear of signing him in fear of any adverse publicity.

Last year, DuVernay shared a similar message in support of Kaepernick, 31, ahead of the big game. The number 7 symbolizes Kap's jersey number. He really wants to go to the Super Bowl, but he can't go to the Super Bowl, because he's got to stand for something.

Well, that add didn't make the cut, and Tyler Merritt told the Washington Examiner that CBS flat out rejected the ad, even go as far as saying "It's time to give a penalty flag to CBS". "I can barely walk right now", Gronk said after the game.

Prominent civil rights activist and writer Shaun King wrote that he's stopped watching the National Football League entirely. On CBS alone, the game was seen by 98.2 million people, compared to 103.4 million who watched on NBC previous year, according to the Nielsen company.

In a recent interview with the Associated Press, Cardi said she had "mixed feelings" about turning down the performance, but felt like she should "stand behind" Kaepernick because he "stood up" for his beliefs. Actress Rosanna Arquette, 59, responded to Ava's tweet with a "Me Too".

Rihanna shouted out Kaepernick on her Instagram story after calling out her fellow passenger, who openly appreciated her support. Need to find something black-affirming to do while it's on.
