Petition Asks Maroon 5, Travis Scott To Take A Knee During Super Bowl Show

An online petition is asking pop group Maroon 5 and rappers Travis Scott and Big Boi to take a knee during the Super Bowl Halftime Show.  The petition on originally called on the three acts to back out of the show, but was altered when it was confirmed earlier this week that they would be performing.  Former NFL player Colin Kaepernick started kneeling during the National Anthem during games in 2016 to protest racial injustice and police brutality.  Other players have joined in since then.  Super Bowl LIII takes place at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on February 3rd.
