In her cover story with Vogue, the singer confirmed she was taking a stand against the league.
“I couldn’t dare do that. For what? Who gains from that? Not my people,” Rihanna says … “I just couldn’t be a sellout. I couldn’t be an enabler.”
“There’s things within that organization that I do not agree with at all, and I was not about to go and be of service to them in any way.”
At the time, Rihanna wasn’t shy about her displeasure with the shield … and she even mocked the league in a video she posted while on an airplane during the Super Bowl.
