Petition urges Super Bowl LIII halftime performers to take knee during set
FOX NEWS - A petition has called for Super Bowl LIII halftime performers Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi to show solidarity with Colin Kaepernick and take a knee during their performance.
As of Wednesday, the Change.org petition had garnered more than 85,000 signatures. The petition said it appears the artists weren't going to back out despite several celebrities calling for a boycott and a separate petition getting 85,000 signatures before the performers were confirmed.
"Show the hundreds of millions of people watching that you stand in solidarity with Kaepernick and all players who protest police brutality," the petition read. "Use this opportunity to force the NFL to change their policy."
Scott on Sunday confirmed he would join Maroon 5 and Big Boi on stage for the Super Bowl halftime show in Atlanta on Feb. 3. The "Astroworld" rapper also announced he was teaming up with the NFL to donate $500,000 to Dream Corps and other charities.
