On Tuesday, a damning report from Variety’s Jem Aswad stated that Travis Scott “had at least one phone conversation” with Colin Kaepernick before agreeing to join Maroon 5 in the Super Bowl halftime show.
The report would go on to state that the 2 parties didn’t necessarily agree, but they did come away from the conversation “with mutual respect and understanding.”
That report lasted less than 24 hours before Colin Kaepernick himself called the entire thing BS.
Radio host Ebro Darden saw that report and tweeted out, “Kap did not approve this bullshit!”
The former San Francisco 49ers QB agreed with that statement when he retweeted it to his followers so they knew no such conversation had happened.
Kap’s girlfriend Nessa also shared Ebro’s tweet writing, “FACTS @EBRO!!! THEY NEED TO STOP LYING.”
The announcement of Scott performing at the Super Bowl only came after the Houston born rapper announced that he and the NFL would donate $500,000 to the non-profit social-justice organization Dream Corps.
That donation seemed to be a clear attempt to curve criticism that he and Maroon 5 are facing for their performance. “I know being an artist that it’s in my power to inspire,” Scott said in a statement. “So before confirming the Super Bowl Halftime performance, I made sure to partner with the NFL on this important donation. I am proud to support Dream Corps and the work they do that will hopefully inspire and promote change.”
