The actor says Scott’s move goes against what Travis should be standing for.
Without calling him a hypocrite, like Al Sharpton did (see below), Jordan insinuates that Travis is betraying the boycott against the NFL for how it’s treated Colin Kaepernick and its handling of the kneeling controversy.
“We’re still trying to stand behind something right now,” Jordan says and suggests that – by taking the Super Bowl gig – Scott’s setting the cause back.
The “Creed” and “Black Panther” icon is still holding out hope that Scott’s participation is just a rumor. Unfortunately, as far as we can tell, it’s real.
If you’ve read this far, you already know Rev. Al Sharpton, like actor Michael B. Jordan, is not at all happy with Travis Scott for agreeing to perform at the Super Bowl, Sharpton is also calling him a HYPOCRITE.
A TMZ camera guy caught up to Sharpton last Friday in a rainy NYC, and he couldn’t be stronger … he says Travis is betraying the NFL boycott by drawing people to the game by his presence with Maroon 5 during the halftime show.
And then there’s Sharpton’s closing comment. It’s one that’ll make you think:
“You can’t fight Jim Crow and then sit in the back of the bus.”
