Tune in and turn up

J. Cole has taken to Twitter to issue an impassioned tirade for fans to boycott the NFL. His remarks were made in response to the saga currently unfolding between the sports organization and President Donald Trump, specifically in regards to players such as Colin Kaepernick who have engaged in acts of protest during the national anthem.

“Same ones who speak out against Trump today, are the same ones that denied a qualified man a job because he took a stand against injustice,” he says, acknowledging the NFL’s commitment to Trump until this past weekend. “You and me have the power to deny them our attention ($$ to them) until they make a wrong situation right.”
