Fat Joe - Stars who refuse to support Colin KaepernickFat Joe

In a since-deleted tweet (via BET), rapper Fat Joe shared his reaction to Kaepernick's protest. "Having thout [sic] about it, I ain't with protesting the #NationalAnthem," he reportedly tweeted, before deleting the typo-laden post. "Soldiers died fighting 4 our freedom not cops. Why disrepsected [sic] them?"

The same day as the deleted message, the rapper also posted another somewhat cryptic post that followers assumed was related to the quarterback's protest. He tweeted, "In order to create change people must lead with actions, opposed to creating reactions."

That tweet set off its own chain reaction, as Kaepernick supporters piled on to voice their disapproval. Fat Joe didn't elaborate further on Twitter, but he did take to Facebook Live where he broadcast for more than 20 minutes, claiming that he actually wasn't the person who wrote the original tweet. Apparently, it was a staffer who overstepped their role and oversimplified Fat Joe's position on the issue, which turned out to be much more nuanced. Fat Joe called for the end of racial injustice at the hands of police, but also for the end of shaming all police because of the negative actions of the few. It's hard to argue with that kind of logic, but it's easy to assume that after all this fervor, Fat Joe has a new Twitter guy.
