Backlash over Jay-Z's 'disgusting' National Football League partnership

  • Jay-Z's partnership with the NFL is just another reminder that capitalism always wins

"We will never turn our backs on @kaepernick7 because your idols made a decision to work with the same organization that is actively keeping Colin unemployed all because he peacefully protested against social injustice in black and brown communities, specifically police brutality", she wrote in the post, which has received more than 32,000 views at the time of this writing.

The report, which cited unidentified sources close to the star, didn't specify which team but said he has "significant ownership interest" and "it is going to happen in the near future". And now he's going to be a part owner ...

Reid paused for a second or two before ending his thought with this: "It's kind of despicable".

The "99 Problems" rapper was also queried about whether he would kneel or stand before the game kicked off and he noted that he believes we're far "beyond that point".

Via Twitter, Wiley posted a VladTV link on Reid's comments and said the following: "Disgusted again by his emotional thinking!" The Brooklyn native met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who was accused of actively working to prevent Colin Kaepernick from working, and said we are beyond kneeling and it's time for "actionable items". The entities plan to work together on the NFL's live game experience and Super Bowl halftime shows while incorporating social justice efforts.

Jay-Z and Roc Nation's recent deal with the National Football League has been the topic of headlines for the past few days, with several celebrities weighing in on the matter.

JAY-Z is making another power play. If protesting on the field is the most effective way, then protest on the field. Us fighting for Colin to get a job is returning him to the status quo of being an employee.

Indeed it is. The NFL can't pretend to have gotten the message about social justice without ensuring that the messenger receives his own specific brand of it.

So it's not surprising that the league would prefer to simply ignore the corner into which it painted itself.

Reid was the first player to join Kaepernick in kneeling.
