Rapper and NFL social justice partner Jay-Z reacted with “disappointment” last Saturday after Colin Kaepernick canceled his NFL-sponsored workout. The rapper scolded Kaepernick for turning the opportunity into a “publicity stunt.”
On Saturday, former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick abruptly canceled his ill-fated NFL workout opportunity with only a half-hour’s notice.
Kapernick rescheduled his fake workout to a local high school where few of the teams that were set to attend the league-sponsored event were able to attend.
Worse, Kaepernick paraded himself around wearing a “Kunte Kinte” shirt. That’s right. This multimillion-dollar fool was trying to pass himself off as a slave.
Many of Kaepernick’s pals praised the fake workout. But one Kaepernick supporter was not happy at all with the outcome.
According to a report at TMZ, rapper Jay-Z was very disappointed that Kaepernick bailed out of the workout. Sources close to the rapper say that Jay-Z was not happy that Kaepernick turned the genuine opportunity into a Kaepernik publicity stunt.
On Saturday, only a half-hour before his scheduled workout in Atlanta, Kaepernick canceled his event. He then turned up at a local high school wearing a “Kunte Kinte” shirt intimating that he thinks he is a slave.
It really is clear that “the slave” was not serious at all about re-starting his NFL career.
The “Where I’m From” rapper was reported as having had some “influence” on the NFL to schedule Kaepernick’s workout.
Jay-Z and his entertainment company Roc Nation signed a partnership in August with the NFL, less than a year after he publicly snubbed the NFL’s offer of performing at the Super Bowl halftime show over their treatment of Colin Kaepernick, who was cut from the San Francisco 49ers after he began refusing to stand for the national anthem.
