Beyonce & Jay-Z Stay Seated During National Anthem At Super Bowl LIV

Kaepernick posted a screenshot of a TMZ article on his story that featured a headline talking about Jay and Beyonce sitting, along with the caption "I thought we were "past kneeling" tho?"

Beyoncé and Jay-Z's decision not to stand during Demi Lovato's performance of the National Anthem at the Super Bowl has raised some eyebrows. "Wow...they're acting like our Anthem means NOTHING".

In the nearly exactly 10 years since, the pop star has battled her demons and overcome incredible odds (Lovato has always been vocal about her history of depression, addiction, eating disorders, and self-harm), but this Sunday at Super Bowl LIV in Miami, Florida she finally realised that lofty career goal.

The 50 year old rapper and music mogul was in a happy mood while spotted leaving an office building in midtown Manhattan on Monday.

The remark was seen by many as a jibe at Jay-Z, who previous year announced a partnership between his Roc Nation and the NFL.

As a partner of the NFL, Jay-Z co-produces the half-time show and has a say in who has the honour of performing the USA anthem. Prior to her Grammys performance last weekend, Lovato told Apple Music, "It's taken me a long time to even get this far, which is performing a song that's so vulnerable to me on a stage in front of all of my peers and co-workers and people I look up to. Beyonce and Jay-Z are a DISGRACE", ACT for America Brigitte Gabriel chimed in.

"He was done wrong".

It was a vocal masterclass from the diva who was more than qualified for her job several years ago, when she advised aspiring pop singers on The X Factor USA. "But it was three years ago and someone needs to say, 'What do we do now - because people are still dying?"

Beyonce has performed at the Super Bowl multiple times.

Beyonce had enjoyed a strong relationship with the National Football League before Kaepernick's protests. "One day, I'm gonna sing the national anthem at a super bowl", the message read from February 7, 2010.
