Beyoncé and Jay-Z behaved like the ingrates they are during the national anthem at Super Bowl 2020 on Sunday night. They remained seated and didn’t stand with hand over heart.
They just sat there!
The superstar couple was sitting with their daughter at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Fla. when Demi Lovato sang the National Anthem.
They didn’t budge, according to TMZ, who got this exclusive video:
Jay-Z has been collaborating with the NFL to work on the new $90 million social justice initiative.
In March of 2018, NFL team owners got together NOT to decide on anthem protests but to decide on a new $90 million social-justice boondoggle:
WT reports that NFL owners are expected to continue the discussion about whether to change the game-day policy, which does not require players to stand, at the spring league meeting in May, according to a post on NFL.com citing the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
The decision to avoid an anthem vote at the March 25-28 annual league meeting in Orlando came with the owners split on how to handle the divisive two-year-old sideline protests, which have been blamed in large part for the NFL’s 9.7 percent ratings decline in the 2017 regular season.
OUR PREVIOUS REPORT ON THE NFL “SOCIAL-JUSTICE” PROGRAM:
The NFL met early last December and agreed on the social-justice program in principle:
The NFL met with a group of players and reached an agreement in principle late Wednesday night to partner on a plan to address social justice issues considered important to African-American communities; sources told ESPN.
The unprecedented agreement calls for the league to contribute $89 million over seven years to projects dealing with criminal justice reform, law enforcement/community relations and education.
During a conference call Wednesday night, Malcolm Jenkins and Anquan Boldin, who lead roughly 40 players who have negotiated with the league office about demonstrations during the national anthem, guided the group through the highlights of the package, which represents the NFL’s largest contribution to a social issue, surpassing that of Salute to Service or Breast Cancer Awareness/Crucial Catch.
The partnership came a day after some players broke away from the Players Coalition because of their dissatisfaction with how Jenkins and Boldin have handled negotiations. Commissioner Roger Goodell, believing that an agreement was at hand, was furious when ESPN reported that players were breaking off, according to one source. But during an afternoon call, Jenkins asked that the commissioner and the owners continue to stand with the players and allow them to do important work in the community.
