Colin Kaepernick Got A Cardi B Shout Out At The VMA's, And Everyone Loved It

"As long as you kneel with us, we're gonna be standing for you."

Published August 28, 2017

Yet another reason to love Cardi B. And this one is far from "regular, degular, schmegular."

The Bronx MC used part of her appearance at MTV's VMA's yesterday to shout out Colin Kaepernick's protest against racism and the police brutality of unarmed Black men.

"Colin Kaepernick, as long as you kneel with us, we're gonna be standing for you, baby!" Cardi said before presenting at the VMA's. "Oww! That's right, I said it!"

She sure did, and everyone loved that she used her platform at the VMA's — as a new artist at that — to be woke and shout out Kaepernick. Take a look at all the love Cardi B received after she repped for the quarterback, who has yet to receive an offer from an NFL team since his season-long protest last year. Look, she don't dance now, she makes "woke" moves.
