Al Sharpton blasts Travis Scott over alleged Super Bowl halftime show hypocrisy

Jay-Z isn't the only person upset with Travis Scott for agreeing to perform with Maroon 5 at the 2019 Super Bowl halftime show.

Rev. Al Sharpton slammed Scott, claiming that Scott essentially turned his back on the Black Lives Matter movement and police brutality against people of color by agreeing to perform at the NFL's biggest night.

"I think anyone that goes into the halftime show is in effect directly violating those that want to raise the question that the NFL should come to terms with what they have done and continue to do to Colin Kaepernick and those that protest on criminal justice issues," Sharpton told TMZ in a clip posted early Saturday.

Hey Al, pay your taxes! How have Al and JayZ been upset by the man? The man refuses to collect your overdue taxes Al because you profit from being of color. Pfft! Gotta keep them on the plantation!

Yep, yep hurray. Al Sharpton needs to pay his taxes to have rights of the 1st Amendment.

If the HARD LEFT Maroon 5 singer actually shows up, he will have done one thing right in my eyes.

(Not that I’m happy with it, but) my kids listen to Travis Scott, and think Jay-Z and Beyonce are losers. Scott knows this. He doesn’t need any of them.

Never heard of Travis but Beyonce used to be a good singer before she got with JayZ...Remember when obama took office he let JayZ and his crew in the situation room? Photo was all over the internet.

Might even try to watch Travis during halftime. Maroon 5, no way. The Rolling Stones 2006....that was fun to watch.

Nothing was done to Colin K. HE did it all to himself.

He ran his mouth & committed employment suicide.

Whoever plays at halftime at the Super Bowl has nothing to do with the moves CK made on his own....or at the behest of his radical BLM girlfriend.

Don’t dare wander off the plantation, Massa Al and his overseers will be at your back, verbal whip in hand and you will pay a very high price.

Who cares...didn’t watch any NFL games in 3 years...and I have ‘stock’ in the Packers. One thing on my bucket list is to see a game at Lambeau. I still going to do it, but I’m not watching the NFL anymore.

Will he show up? Of course. Can he quit at the last moment? Sure. In insurance policy as well as a contract that makes sure he doesn’t do anything weird like the breast. 7 second delay would help. The guy is 20 years old I do believe. The NFL is like the Democrats nominee in 2020. Gotta showcase the blacks or they are in deep doo doo.

Yeah, like “Reverend” Al Shysterton would ever pass up any opportunity to make twenty bucks! Moreover, the bastard should be in prison!
