Amy Schumer, every liberal’s favorite “social justice” actress, recently took a stand against the NFL with a post proclaiming that she refuses to do any Super Bowl ads or anything related to it.
But her reasoning for boycotting the league is far different than why conservative Americans are… she’s boycotting because she’s standing with her new best friend: former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
Let us know how that works out for ya, Amy…
“Comedian” Amy Schumer, fresh off her sort-of arrest during the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, took to Instagram late Friday to announce that she’s joining Colin Kaepernick’s cause, and “protesting” the NFL’s decision to “blacklist” the former second-string quarterback.
Schumer posted her anti-NFL manifesto to Instagram Friday night, under a photo of her leaning on a giant wine glass. In it, she accused white NFL players who refused to kneel with Kaepernick “complicit” in “deep inequality” and “endless racism,” and prodded Super Bowl halftime act, Maroon 5, to drop out of performing.
“I wonder why more white players aren’t kneeling,” Schumer mused. “Once you witness the truly deep inequality and endless racism people of color face in our country, not to mention the police brutality and murders. Why not kneel next to your brothers? Otherwise how are you not complicit?”
“I think it would be cool if @maroon5 backed out of super bowl like @badgalriri Did (sic),” Schumer added.
Schumer then declared that she’d informed her agents that she would not appear in any Super Bowl commercials, no matter how much money was offered.
“I personally told my reps I wouldn’t do a Super Bowl commercial this year. I know it must sound like a privilege ass sacrifice but it’s all i got,” Schumer claimed. “Hitting the nfl with the advertisers is the only way to really hurt them.”
