Colin Kaepernick's Lawyer Slams Adam Levine's Reasoning for Taking Super Bowl Gig

Colin Kaepernick‘s lawyer is speaking out to slam Maroon 5‘s Adam Levine.

The 39-year-old singer gave an interview this week in which he explained his reasoning for taking the Super Bowl Halftime Show gig while other stars turned down the opportunity to show support for Kaepernick.

Colin hasn’t played in an NFL game in years following his decision to kneel during the National Anthem to protest police brutality.

“If you’re going to cross this idealogical or intellectual picket line, then own it, and Adam Levine certainly isn’t owning it,” attorney Mark Geragos said on GMA. “It’s a cop out when you start talking about, ‘I’m not a politician; I’m just doing the music.’ Most of the musicians who have any kind of consciousness whatsoever understand what’s going on here.”

In his Entertainment Tonight interview about the Super Bowl, Adam said, “No one put more thought and love into this than I did… I spoke to many people. Most importantly, though, I silenced all the noise and listened to myself, and made my decision about how I felt.”

Adam said that he plans on speaking “through the music.”
