The NFL is having a disastrously difficult time trying to find Super Bowl halftime performers after many celebs called for a boycott. Rihanna turned down an offer to be the halftime performer, declining because of the NFL’s treatment of Colin Kaepernick. The 49ers quarterback has been shut out of the league after famously kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality. Amy Schumer, who appeared in viral ads for Bud Light during the 2016 Super Bowl, then announced that she wouldn’t do any commercials.
“I personally told my reps I wouldn’t do a Super Bowl commercial this year,” she wrote on Instagram. “I know it must sound like a privilege ass sacrifice but it’s all I got. Hitting the NFL with the advertisers is the only way to really hurt them. I know opposing the NFL is like opposing the NRA. Very tough, but don’t you want to be proud of how you’re living?”
