It is a known fact that former 49ner Colin Kaepernick has been blackballed from the NFL after peacefully protesting social injustice and police brutality.
The Madden NFL 19 game must be on board with blackballing Kaepernick as they censored the athlete/activist’s name out of a popular song.
YG’s hit single Big Bank featuring 2 Chainz, Nicki Minaj and Big Sean mentions Colin Kaepernick and a fan realized his name was TAKEN OUT.
YG caught wind of the news and let fans know that Madden did not run that edit by him
Take a look at the video + YG’s response below:
Madden later returned with an apology, however, this couldn’t have been a mistake since this is the SECOND time they edited Colin Kaerpernick’s name out of a song.
