LOL: Amy Schumer 'Sticks It' to the NFL in a REALLY Dumb Way

Comedian Amy Schumer on Friday vowed to turn down any potential NFL advertisements this year. Her reason is simple: she wants to support Colin Kaepernick and his kneeling during the national anthem. Kaepernick is still not playing for an NFL team, despite becoming a major voice for a new Nike ad campaign.

Schumer took to Instagram to explain her thought process. Of course, she instantly talked about racism and what it's like for minorities (as if she'd know).

"Once you witness the truly deep inequality and endless racism people of color face in our country, not to mention the police brutality and murders," Schumer wrote. "Why not kneel next to your brothers? Otherwise how are you not complicit?"

Friday thought. I wonder why more white players aren’t kneeling. Once you witness the truly deep inequality and endless racism people of color face in our country, not to mention the police brutality and murders. Why not kneel next to your brothers? Otherwise how are you not complicit? I think it would be cool if @maroon5 backed out of super bowl like @badgalriri Did. I personally told my reps I wouldn’t do a Super Bowl commercial this year. I know it must sound like a privilege ass sacrifice but it’s all i got. Hitting the nfl with the advertisers is the only way to really hurt them. I know opposing the nfl is like opposing the nra. Very tough, but don’t you want to be proud of how you’re living? Stand up for your brothers and sisters of color. And the hottest thing a guy can do is get down on one knee. Not to propose but to reject the treatment of his teammates by this country. Anyone who says its disrespectful to our military please read up on the fact that a lot of veterans are proud of what @kaepernick7 is doing and fully support him. What are your thoughts?

Schumer's decision to turn down NFL advertisements isn't a miraculously new idea. In fact, it comes a day after Rihanna turned down the NFL's request to have her perform at the Super Bowl halftime show. 

“The NFL and CBS really wanted Rihanna to be next year’s performer in Atlanta,” an insider told Us magazine. “They offered it to her, but she said no because of the kneeling controversy. She doesn’t agree with the NFL’s stance.”

Once Schumer heard Maroon 5 was being considered for the Super Bowl halftime show, she also encouraged the group to consider saying "no" to the NFL as well.

Let's see how this goes over and how Maroon 5 will respond. Hopefully they won't give into peer pressure from idiots like Schumer.
