Big Sean said the NFL and EA Sports removed Colin Kaepernick's name from the song "Big Bank" for Madden 19 without his permission.


As we reported on Thursday, people who received an advanced copy of Madden 19 noticed that Kap's name was removed from the following line:

"Feed me to the wolves now I lead the pack and shit / You boys all cap, I’m more Colin Kaepernick."

The song also features Nicki Minaj, 2 Chainz and YG, whose team said he's furious that Kap's name was taken out, because he fully supports what he's doing. In fact, the same thing happened last year on Madden 18 when Kaepernick's name was removed from Mike Will Made-It's song "Bars of Soap."

Kaepernick has sued the NFL for colluding to keep him out of the league, ever since he started kneeling during the National Anthem. 

After seeing Sean's tweet, Kaepernick thanked him for his support.

"Much love, brother," he wrote. "Thank you for having my back."


 

EA Sports also sent a message, apologized to Kaepernick and said they'd add his name to an updated version of the game on Aug. 6.


UPDATE: EA Sports has now put Kaepernick's name back into the "Big Bank" line. pixel_end
