By now you’ve heard that Travis Scott has agreed to perform at the Super Bowl under the condition he and the NFL will donate $500,000 to the non-profit social-justice organization Dream Corps.
Variety released an exclusive report claiming Travis consulted with Colin Kaepernick before announcing his plans to perform.
Scott and Kaepernick had at least one phone conversation before the rapper confirmed his Super Bowl appearance, sources tell Variety. A source close to Scott said that while the two did not necessarily agree, they emerged from the conversation with mutual respect and understanding, with the rapper taking the stance that everyone makes a statement in their own way and he felt that the money going toward Dream Corps, combined with the platform provided by the Super Bowl, will do some good. The source also said that Scott would not confirm his performance until the donation was locked in.
The lie detector determined – That Is A Lie.
Colin has been retweeting folks all morning who are shutting down the erroneous report.
I especially like the tweet from his girlfriend, Nessa!

Colin also retweeted this:
So you’re trying to tell ME that Kaepernick, a man that has been Blackballed by the NFL, costing him his career, for protesting against police terrorism, gave the green light to .@TrvisXX, a man that insinuated that Mike Brown was at fault in his death, to partner with the NFL??? https://t.co/FQG1q8J58Y

I guess we’re all pretty clear on where Colin stands on this topic.
