Kenny Stills Blasts Jay-Z Over NFL Partnership

Kenny Stills is not afraid to speak his mind when it comes to Jay-Z!

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills asks the question “how many common people does Jay-Z know and how many has he stood up for?” Stills is calling out the obvious while hip hop peers are supporting Jay-Z’s latest money move, like the same one his discouraged Jermaine Dupri of doing years ago. Read on… reports on Monday, Stills spoke candidly about his issues with Jay-Z’s involvement with the NFL.

Kenny Stills questioned the comments made by Jay-Z during the partnership’s introductory news conference. Yesterday, Colin Kaepernick also questioned Jay-Z about his statements about kneeling.

Though, Stills, who has continued to kneel during the anthem, also said he’s willing to give Jay-Z “the benefit of the doubt for now,” but made it known the whole thing doesn’t sit right with him.

Kenny stated:

He could have reached out to Colin. He could have reached out to me. Some of the ways that he answered his questions, talking about ‘We’re moving past kneeling’ — like he ever protested. He’s not an NFL player. He’s never been on a knee.

He added:

I wonder how many common people that he knows or that he’s spoken to. I wonder if he’s read my Facebook comments or my Instagram comments. Or some of the things that people say to me.

The 27-year-old went on to say:

To be able to speak on it and say that we’re moving past something, it didn’t seem very informed.

Let’s NOT forget that Kenny received death threats from Trump fundraiser recently.

The NFL’s decision to partner with Jay Z has been gold with Roger Godell, but NOT for the players who are part of the movement. The way Jay has gone behind Kaepernick.
