One would think that some things are sacred like the United States National Anthem, but many celebrities don’t feel that way.
Initiated by disgraced former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick over three years ago, high-profile American figures destroyed the symbol of what our American Flag has represented for generations by rejoicing in his disrespect of it.
And now superstar musicians Jay-Z and Beyonce continued this disgraceful act by doing this thing during the Super Bowl National Anthem.
The prolific superstar music mogul Jay-Z shocked everyone recently when it was announced he just entered into a partnership with the NFL – reportedly for social justice causes. The reason why it came as a shock was because Jay-Z and Colin Kaepernick are friends. It was like a slap in the face and many liberal sports journalists like Jemele Hill attacked him for it.
Kaepernick has been doing everything in his power to make the NFL look like a villain since he first kneeled during the National Anthem in 2016. The NFL’s popularity – television ratings and stadium attendance – plummeted as a result.
Many Hollywood filmmakers, professional athletes, renowned musicians and even fine artists flocked to Kaepernick’s side to support his disgraceful protest against the American Flag.
But Kaepernick hasn’t played a down of football in over three years and his popularity for “social justice causes” has also declined, meaning that many people may have Kaepernick-fatigue.
During the 2019-2020 season, Kaepernick and the NFL orchestrated a private workout with the 32 teams in order to try and bury the hatchet over the collusion scandal that the former 49ers quarterback accused them of for the past three years.
While Kaepernick’s team put out in the sports media that teams were absolutely interested, nobody really took it seriously because he currently remains jobless as an NFL quarterback. There’s the Kaepernick-fatigue.
But while it seemed like this new partnership was a step in the right direction against a pro-Kaepernick NFL, Jay-Z and his pop icon wife Beyonce, both sat during Demi Lovato’s National Anthem performance during the Super Bowl.
Twitter handle “Demi Lovato News Media” posted the video on social media.

Whether the Twitter account was calling the prolific music couple out or was actually proud to post the video is unknown, but it seems as though it’s a call-out.
Also, Jay-Z is disrespectfully wearing a hat.
Jay Z has come under fire from social justice warriors and “woke” activists for his partnership with the NFL.
By sitting down for the National Anthem, Jay Z and Beyonce could be trying to send the signal that they haven’t “sold out” and are still supportive of the anti-American protests Colin Kaepernick started.
