Ava DuVernay Is Boycotting Super Bowl 2019 - Find Out Why

Director, writer, and producer Ava DuVernay has announced that she’s boycotting the 2019 Super Bowl in solidarity with former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

“I will not be a spectator, viewer or supporter of the #SuperBowl today in protest of the @NFL’s racist treatment of @Kaepernick7 and its ongoing disregard for the health + well-being of all its players,” Ava tweeted out to her followers. “To watch the game is to compromise my beliefs. It’s not worth it. #ImWithKap.”

There are six other celebrities who have publicly announced they are boycotting the Super Bowl.

  • Gina

    Perhaps the 2 million twitter followers of this two-time emmy award winning director will care what she has to say.

  • krtmom

    Ok keyboard warrior…poor thing, still trying to make your response relevant!!! I don’t care about her or you!!! I feel sorry for you because you seem angry. See someone before it’s too late…SAVE YOURSELF!!! Hahaha!!!

  • Gina

    I’m the angry keyboard warrior and yet you’re the one throwing a fit & using Cap Locks and exclamation points? Ha. Sweetie pie, you’ve got a lot of self-reflection to do because clearly you’re projecting. Good luck.

  • krtmom

    😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
    By the way… where’s the caps?

  • Gina

    In your previous comment, silly rabbit.

  • krtmom

    It’s “wabbit” according to Elmer Fudd

  • Gina

    Not surprised you’d be able to quote a dopey cartoon character better than I would.

  • krtmom

    Oh Gina- I’m done, you win, you’re just so much smarter than I am (even though you had to edit the word “winning” on your first reply to me because you spelled it with one “n”) ! How can I possibly go on…Just fucking with you kid, seeing how many times I could get you to reply!!! Don’t bother because I’ve had enough fun with you!!!

  • Gina

    Ah, poor thing. Now you’ve resorted to making things up. I didn’t edit anything, sweetie pie. Speaking of winning, I am totally winning this argument which is why you’ve desperately resorted to poorly executed reverse psychology in an attempt to have the last word. Pathetic & unsuccessful.

  • krtmom

    Actually dear I have a screenshot of your mistake but it will not upload. Either way, I really don’t give a flying fuck about you or whatever you have to say. Just having a little lighthearted fun. If it makes you happy to think you’re “winning” at something so trivial than good for you! You obviously need a victory in your sad life. Lighten up sweetie, you’re in for a long angry life!!! You must be a liberal!!!! 😂😂😂

  • Gina

    Interesting that you supposedly have screenshots of something you call “lighthearted fun.” You’re clearly taking this more seriously than you are letting on. You claim that you’ve had enough fun with me, and yet you’re still here because you can’t help but obsess over me. I’m flattered. You’re all over the place, honey. You must be schizophrenic.
