PETA says its Colin Kaepernick-inspired Super Bowl ad rejected by Fox

For many, the rollout to the Jay-Z and the NFL union was flawed due to a lack of a clear take on Colin Kaepernick, who essentially put his career on ice when he made a decision to protest police brutality by kneeling before games during the playing of the National Anthem.

In an email to Reuters, a representative for PETA, otherwise known as People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, defended the ad and said that Kaepernick had approved of it. So, if I could pick one, three other people are upset. "I simply believe the process could've been more definite".

Jay-Z has actually done several thousand programs in numerous nations across all continents. "The people we sign - 75 percent of them, at least - grew up in poverty". Our lives are still there, our cousin still needs a lawyer, our mother still can't make the rent.

Addressing how his approach to tackling social injustice differs from the stance Kaepernick has taken, JAY-Z added, "We are two adult men who disagree on the tactic but are marching for the same cause". In that incident, Jay- Z had ended up turning down a halftime show performance. They had asked him to bring Rihanna and Kanye West along. "It was a principle thing".


He is speaking about this event ahead of this year's Super Bowl Halftime Show.

However, JAY-Z has now defended his decision to work with the NFL, because as part of the agreement, he has a key role in the development of the league's new Inspire Change campaign, focused on "education and economic advancement, police and community relations, and criminal justice reform".
