Chuck D Calls for NFL Boycott Over Colin Kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick’s decision to protest the national anthem last year sparked both outrage and support from people across the country, and now with just one month until the NFL season begins, Kaep has yet to sign with a team.

On Wednesday (Aug. 9), Chuck D weighed in on the situation, telling TMZ that upset fans should be participating in a full boycott against the NFL. The hip-hop legend doesn’t necessarily believe it will result in Kaepernick getting signed, but he feels strongly that fans should be doing everything in their power to support him.

“Don’t go to the sports bars. Don’t turn the game on. Leave your team for a year,” Chuck D suggests.
