Actor Michael B. Jordan Hopes News of Travis Scott Performing at 2019 Super Bowl Is False
Travis Scott's slated performance at the 2019 Super Bowl alongside Maroon 5 is a touchy subject among those who support Colin Kaepernick's mission and feel the NFL should be boycotted. The latest person to speak up on Travis' big opportunity is actor Michael B. Jordan who hopes the reports of La Flame entertaining at the big game are false.
The Creed actor was stopped by TMZ on Saturday (Dec. 22). When asked if Trav should go forward with the halftime show gig, Jordan didn't seem too excited about the prospects.
"Man, that's something that I'm not that happy with," he answered. "Hopefully, it's a rumor. I haven't seen much on it other than the headlines and the click bait and all that good stuff, but hopefully it doesn't work out. We all trying to stick together on this one."
He added, "We are trying to stand behind something right now. It's like, we all have to collectively try to do that. Hopefully, it's not true."
A number of celebrities have chimed in on the topic. Al Sharpton is of the belief it would be hypocritical for Scott to take the stage at SB 53.
"You can't tell people to stand for those who take a knee and don't go to the game, then say but somebody should perform there and entertain," Sharpton recenlty said. "You're drawing TV viewers. You're bringing supporters and I think you can't have it both ways. You can't help people market something and then turn around and say you agree with what people are protesting."
Jay-Z reportedly reached out to Travis about declining the offer. Yung Joc says he won't judge the Texas MC if he decides to take the gig.
