Who do they think they are? My mind just asked that. The Carter’s, decided to show the world that they can do anything they so wish including not standing up to the national anthem.
During the 2020 Super-bowl LIV, Jay-Z, wife Beyonce Gisele Knowles, and daughter Blue Ivy did not stand up as Demi Lovato sang the National anthem.
Their act has annoyed a number of fans. Of course there is the other group that has cheered to this very act. They say that the couple decided to keep up with Colin Kaepernick’s fight against injustice.
Also to note, the Carter’s song, apeshit in Jay-Z’s verse he says, “I said no to the Superbowl, you need me I don’t need you”*
Hmm, I don’t know if I am translating right, but why couldn’t they stand. Soldiers die defending their country and they decided to sit down, because they said no to the Superbowl? Is Superbowl America?
Here are samples of internet reactions;
