Sources Claim Travis Scott “Consulted With Colin Kaepernick Before Confirming” The Super Bowl,” Kaepernick Says That Never Happened

The Super Bowl is just weeks away, and the controversy surrounding the half-time show is still brewing. After news surfaced of Travis Scott’s new gig with the NFL, alongside Maroon 5, many encouraged Scott to forgo the opportunity in support of Colin Kaepernick. 

Despite the pushback, Scott accepted the opportunity with conditions, in an attempt to so blunt the criticism. But, once the two agreed to put up a joint donation to the non-profit social-justice organization Dream Corps, in support of Kaepernick’s stand against social injustices, Scott agreed to perform.

In fact, according to an exclusive Variety report, sources said Scott consulted with Kaepernick before confirming his performance. Apparently, the two had at least one phone conversation before his confirmation. A source close to Scott said that although the two didn’t necessarily agree, the conversation ended with “mutual respect and understanding, with the rapper taking the stance that everyone makes a statement in their own way and he felt that the money going toward Dream Corps, combined with the platform provided by the Super Bowl, will do some good.” 

However, after news surfaced of the call, Kaepernick denied it even happened. 

Ebro Darden took to Twitter to publicly deny the report, and shortly after Kaepernick confirmed with a retweet.

“Kap did not approve this bullshit! Get the f*ck outta here,” Darden wrote, to which Kaep’s girlfriend, Nessa responded, “FACTS @Ebro!! THEY NEED TO STOP LYING.”
