What Super Bowl? That is the question that Rihanna is asking, and her fans are loving the epic shade geared towards the NFL.
A long list of celebrities has vowed to boycott the 2019 Super Bowl in order to show support to Colin Kaepernick who created drama by kneeling during the national anthem before his former team’s big games.
Rihanna was one of the many high-profile performers who declined the gig of giving a mini-concert during the 2019 Super Bowl Halftime Show.
While the Patriots and the Rams were going at it in Atlanta, Rihanna took to social media to diss the NFL.
The 30-year-old diva posted a video and explained in the caption that a man sitting in first class asked, “How can we watch the super bowl on the flight?” Rihanna said she was unimpressed.
The makeup guru also shared a blurred photo of the passenger sitting a few rows behind her and called him a “weirdo” for trying to watch the big football event.
Fans called Rihanna a queen for staying woke and claimed Cardi B is a sellout.
One person said: “Females held kap down more than dudes. Typical. Riri is a real one..cause when she stood against it..she really stood against it..whilst the others broke easily and went to the Superbowl @badgalriri respecttttttt intelligent and woke.”
Another commenter stated: “Everybody was rooting for Kaepernick until the super bowl 🤦🏿♀️ it’s fine every celebrity that shamed him for doing it was at the Superbowl having the time of their lives with the owners..Ri the real queen, not cardi that said she isn’t performing at the Superbowl and went on to perform at the Superbowl parties 😂Glad she’s not a sell out like most of these mfs. I love her ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️forget the Super Bowl Rihanna where is the album release the damn album we want the album give us the album. LOL. ”
This third supporter shared: “Yes QUEEN RIRI. I peeped all the other fraudulent celebs and tv personalities running around talking bout the with Kap, but all this weekend Kap was not even thought about. Please don’t speak on how we need to stick together and support each other when yall can’t even boycott a sport, 1 damn sport yall can’t even do that.”
Rihanna is always ready for media in the political arena.
