Cardi B had received an offer to perform with Maroon 5 at the Super Bowl but declined saying ‘I got to sacrifice a lot of money to perform but there’s a man who sacrificed his job for us, so we got to stand behind him,’ she said in support for Colin Kaepernick.
She said it was a hard decision since her husband, rapper Offset, loves to watch football, but she felt obligated to ‘stand behind’ Kaepernick because he ‘stood up’ for minorities.
‘My husband, he loves football. His kids play football. It’s really hard for him. He really wants to go to the Super Bowl, but he can’t go to the Super Bowl, because he’s got to stand for something,’ said Cardi B.
