#N12BX: Super BowlPosted: Updated:
The Super Bowl is just days away, but the road to the big game has been paved with controversy.
Many celebrities have spoken out against being involved in the event to stand in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick.
Kaepernick famously knelt during the National Anthem to protest racial injustice in 2016.
He hasn't played in the NFL since that season ended.
Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi will headline the halftime show. While artists like Rihanna, Jay Z and Cardi B all reportedly turned down offers to stand with Kaepernick.
Amy Schumer refused to appear in any Super Bowl ads this year for the same reason.
There were even reports that Jay Z tried to talk Travis Scott out of performing.
The Super Bowl will be held in Atlanta on Feb. 3.
