Celebrity #ImWithKap Posts You Just Can’t Miss


#ImWithKap

Not everyone enjoyed last weekend’s Super Bowl game many chose to boycott the event in support of Colin Kaepernick. The former quarterback has been mistreated, suffering at the hands of racism for merely choosing to kneel in protest of police brutality and social injustice during the National Anthem. Kaepernick hasn’t been signed to another team since the San Francisco 49ers dropped him, and many celebrities have supported him from the start.

Not only did several entertainers refuse offers to perform during a halftime show, but several hours before the game, #ImWithKap started trending. The hashtag was used by anyone boycotting the game in support of Kaepernick and what he stands for. Celebrities flooded their social media pages with #ImWithKap images, and these are the posts you just can’t miss.

Nick Cannon

Nick Cannon took to Twitter on Sunday morning to not only show that he was boycotting the game but that he supports Kaepernick’s cause as well. Aligned with the #ImWithKap hashtag was the #7Challenge that invited people to donate $7 to KnowYourRightsCamp.com. The number 7 represents Kaepernick’s football jersey, but likely people chose to donate a bit more. Know Your Rights Camp educates youth on a number of things including how to “interact with law enforcement in various scenarios.”

Common

Rapper Common shared a few #ImWithKap posts alongside political activist Dr. Angela Davis and the results are just epic. Davis is wearing a Kaepernick jersey that displays the hashtag while Common’s post shares one of her quotes:

I’m no longer accepting the things I cannot change. I’m changing the things I cannot accept.

Zendaya

Zendaya didn’t even have to create her #ImWithKap post this year. She just retweeted her original post from 2017 and dropped the mic.

Ava DuVernay

Director and producer Ava DuVernay addressed more than just NFL’s issue with Kaepernick, but also their lack of concern for player’s health. Likely this is a dig at the safety issues players have to deal with at the professional level. While they’re highly paid, they often spend the rest of their lives with physical and mental health issues.

Stephen Curry

#ImWithKap

Other athletes also chimed in on Super Bowl Sunday. Professional basketball player Stephen Curry may not have used the #ImWithKap hashtag, but he shared a photo of him wearing Kaepernick’s jersey. The only thing that would make this picture more adorable would be a matching onesie.

Mari Copeny

If you don’t know who Mari Copeny is, get to know her. Known as Little Miss Flint, Copeny is a young activist who is best known for taking on Flint’s water crisis. That doesn’t mean she doesn’t choose to get involved in other political issues as well. Here she is speaking out against police brutality in her Kaepernick jersey, and she hasn’t even gotten into middle school yet. This just might be enough evidence to confirm there’s still hope for future generations!
