EA Sports Apologizes For Removing Colin Kaepernick's Name From Madden '19 Track AFTER Big Sean Puts Them On Blast

EA Sports is MAD SHADY! The sports video game company issued an apology for removing Colin Kaepernick's name off a track that's on the new Madden '19 game. Of course, they didn't apologize until after Big Sean called them out. More inside...

The blatant disrespect towards Colin Kaepernick CONTINUES. "They" hate when a black man (yes, we know he's biracial) stands up for himself and his community, don't they?

So here's what happened...

Rapper YG recorded a song titled "Big Bank" that is set to appear on the upcoming Madden NFL 19 video game. He tapped Big Sean to be featured on the track (along with Nicki Minaj & 2 Chainz) and the Detroit native gave a shoutout to former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

However, EA Sports went in and censored his name off of the track along with the record's profanity, racial slurs and drug references.

Take a listen:

 

 

 

Big Sean's lyric was supposed to say: “Feed me to the wolves, now I lead the pack and shit. You boys all cap, I'm more Colin Kaepernick." Once the "I Don't F*** With You" rapper got word about it, he hopped on Twitter to call out EA Sports and made it known he did NOT approve the version that's currently on the game:

 

 

YG also responded to the track, saying he didn't know about the censorship either:

 

 

And he also made a video talking about it:

 

 

Kap's girlfriend/HOT 97 personality Nessa also hopped on Twitter to repost the clip and called EA Sports shady:

 

Colin hopped on Twitter to thank Big Sean for supporting him:

 

 

After receiving backlash, EA Sports issued an apology, saying it was a "mistake" and that they'll be sending out an update on August 6th that will include Kapernick's name. Here's what they said:

 

 

However, Colin's girlfriend Nessa isn't buying it:

 

 

 

Hmph. Thoughts?
