J. Cole Calls for NFL Boycott in Support of Colin Kaepernick


Shortly before the NFL games began today (9/24), J. Cole surprised fans by letting off

a stream of tweets calling for a boycott of the NFL.

In a lengthy series of tweets Cole both supported the NFL players who have kneeled or protested the National Anthem and decried the NFL for their purported unfair treatment of quarterback Colin Kaepernick, believing that he has been denied a job from the NFL due to his acts of protest by kneeling during the National Anthem throughout the 2016 NFL season. “God bless every player that finds courage to kneel today,” he begins. “But the real power comes from you deciding to not watch.”

Cole’s entire statement can be read below.

God bless every player that finds courage to kneel today. But the real power comes from you deciding to not watch. Your eyes translate to advertising money for the League and it’s [sic] owners.
Same ones who speak out against Trump today, are the same ones that denied a qualified man a job because he took a stand against injustice. You and me have the power to deny them our attention ($$ to them) until they make a wrong situation right.
