Beyonce Presents Legacy Award to Colin Kaepernick, Thanks Him for His Sacrifice

Beyonce had the honor of presenting football player Colin Kaepernick with the Muhammad Ali Legacy Award at the Sports Illustrated’s 2017 Sportspersons of the Year Awards on Tuesday night (December 5) at the Barclays Center in New York City.

The 36-year-old entertainer was a surprise presenter at the event.

“Hi everyone! It feels so good to be here on such a special night of appreciation. Thank you, Colin Kaepernick,” Beyonce said. “Thank you for your selfless heart and your conviction. Thank you for your personal sacrifice.”

Colin took action with no fear of consequence or repercussion, only hope to change the world for the better; to change perception; to change the way we treat each other, especially people of color,” Bey added. “We’re still waiting for the world to catch up. It’s been said that racism is so American that when we protest racism, some assume we’re protesting America.”

“So, let’s be very clear. Colin has always been very respectful of the individuals who selfless serve and protect our country and our communities and our families. His message is solely focused on social injustice for historically disenfranchised people. Let’s not get that mistaken,” she concluded.

Colin made headlines last football season after he decided to kneel during the National Anthem to raise awareness for racial inequality in America. Despite being a star quarterback, he has not played this season.

The Muhammad Ali Legacy Award, previously presented to Magic Johnson, Jack Nicklaus, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Bill Russell, is presented to someone who “embodies the ideals of sportsmanship, leadership and philanthropy and has used sports as a platform for changing the world.”

John Legend, Diddy, Jesse Tyler Ferguson & More Stars Fire Back at Donald Trump Over NFL Protest Comments!

Stars like John Legend, Diddy and Jesse Tyler Ferguson are firing back at President Donald Trump for his comments on Saturday (September 23) regarding NFL players who protest during the National Anthem at games.

During an address in Huntsville, Alabama, Trump asked the crowd if they would “love to see one of these NFL owners – when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, he’s fired.’”

The comment was in reference to athletes like Colin Kaepernick who have protested the administration by taking a knee before the game.

Athletes and celebrities alike have since fired back at Trump, who doubled-down on his comments with a string of tweets on Twitter: “If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL,or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect…our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem. If not, YOU’RE FIRED. Find something else to do!”
