As the hours to Super Bowl LIII tick down, some celebs have shown their support for a different cause using the hashtag #ImWithKap. Gladys Knight will sing the national anthem. Unfortunately, the star opted out in order to stand behind Kaepernick.
The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback kneeled down during playings of the pre-game anthem in 2016 to raise awareness of police brutality, racial inequality and other social issues, igniting a lasting political firestorm. That is a 5.2 percent drop from last year's game, which was already pretty low to begin with.
"The only football player I'm checking for this weekend". Count director Ava DuVernay as one person who refused to cross the picket line, instead choosing to stand in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick by boycotting this year's Super Bowl.
She went on to share an illustration of Kaepernick, captioned: "For those of you who thought I was watchin Super Bowl. we beefin".More news: 'Game of Thrones' Invades Bud Light Super Bowl LIII Commercial

Singer Janelle Monae also shared her support.
If there was one person who could have saved Maroon 5's performance, it was Cardi B, who makes a cameo on their single "Girls Like You". Why am I not going to take advantage of y'all and take money from y'all too?
We're not sure if we could be more excited for "Captain Marvel" than we already are, but this action-packed trailer has us itching to see the film as soon as it hits theaters next month.
While Cardi declined the offer to perform at the Halftime Show as she felt obligated to "stand behind" Kaepernick, she did get it poppin' with The New England Patriots' owners, Robert Kraft. "'That was the worst day, you know, like get your mind right, '" he said.
I used to have a small Superbowl party every year, if only for my kids.
