Beyonce is being criticized for participating in Sunday night’s Super Bowl even though her husband Jay Z had called on artists to boycott the event to show support for Colin Kaepernick.
Two years ago, Jay Z criticized the NFL after they asked him to perform for the Super Bowl half-time show. He told them he will not do it as a way of showing support for blacklisted player Colin Kaepernick.
Jay Z also reportedly convinced artists such as Cardi B, Meek Mill, and Drake to turn down performing at the Super Bowl.
But his wife, Beyonce, still participated indirectly. Her artists Chloe x Halle took to the Super Bowl stage and sang America the Beautiful to millions of viewers.
Chloe x Halle are signed to Beyonce’s “Parkwood” label and the mother-of-three later took to Instagram to share a video of the girls’ performance with the caption: “I’m so proud of Chloe and Halle! ???”
Bey is now being blasted on social media for making money off of NFL rather than standing with Colin Kaepernick. Some even went as far as branding her a hypocrite.
