Her message came the same day reports surfaced that singer Rihanna turned down being the next year's Super Bowl half time performer, also in support of Kaepernick.

"Friday thought. I wonder why more white players aren't kneeling". She's sitting this one out in support of Colin Kaepernick and his take-a-knee protest against racism and police brutality.

Actress Amy Schumer has weighed in on this year's potential Super Bowl half-time lineup, saying that Adam Levine led Maroon 5 should join Rihanna in turning down the gig.

"I personally told my reps I wouldn't do a Super Bowl commercial this year", Schumer wrote. Why not kneel next to your brothers?

She previously appeared in a politically themed Super Bowl commercial in 2016 for Bud Light. Addressing them directly, she wrote: "Otherwise how are you not complicit?"

The San Francisco 49ers quarterback is now embroiled in a legal battle against the National Football League, alleging that they have colluded to keep him off the field as a result of the protest, in which he knelt as a means of calling attention to police brutality against African American men. Schumer added that "I think it would be cool if [Maroon 5] backed out" as well. She says she realizes that "must sound like a privilege ass sacrifice but it's all I got". It was not immediately clear whether she had been approached to appear in an ad during the big game.

Schumer compared opposing the NFL to opposing the National Rifle Association.
