Beyoncé and JAY-Z Did Not Stand During the National Anthem — Was it in Protest?

The protest movement Colin Kaepernick began nearly four years ago continued at Super Bowl LIV — with a couple of powerhouses!

As players and fans in the stands stood for the national anthem ahead of kickoff in Miami, Beyoncé, JAY-Z, and their 8-year-old daughter Blue Ivy remained seated, continuing Colin’s legacy to raise awareness of racism and police brutality in the United States.

As TMZ reports, the couple’s decision to sit during Demi Lovato’s performance comes about six months after JAY-Z signed a deal with the NFL.

The rapper and mogul’s deal brought him on as a “live music entertainment strategist” through his company Roc Nation.

“The NFL has a great big platform, and it has to be all-inclusive,” he told the Times of agreeing to work with the NFL and its activism arm, Inspire Change. “They were willing to do some things, to make some changes, that we can do some good.”

Who’s to say if their silent protest will end up creating more change, but we’ll certainly keep a close watch.
