Gladys Knight Says Y’all Can Keep That Super Bowl Shade!

She's put her time in. Lived through times that most kids would faint at.
Sing the song Glady's. You earned it.

If y’all thought y’all were just going to cancel the legendary Gladys Knight and get away with it, then y’all were sorely mistaken. Get ready cuz #IssaClapback!

When the NFL announced that Ms. Gl...nal Anthem at Super Bowl LIII, folks swiftly let Knight know that they were not in support of her decision. There were tweets, posts and think-pieces effectively calling for the cancellation of Knight because of her blatant dismissal of the boycott. However, the “Midnight Train To Georgia” singer sees things differently.

So, Gladys’ stance? Pretty much, I’m not new to this, I’m true to this. In a statement to Variety, Knight spoke about Colin Kaepernick’s NFL protest, while reminding the youngin’s she was on the front line of civil rights activism before many of them were even alive. That’s senior citizen shade!

“I understand that Mr. Kaepernick is protesting two things, and they are police violence and injustice,” she wrote to Variety. “It is unfortunate that our National Anthem has been dragged into this debate when the distinctive senses of the National Anthem and fighting for justice should each stand alone.”

The Empress of Soul continued, “I am here today and on Sunday, Feb. 3 to give the Anthem back its voice, to stand for that historic choice of words, the way it unites us when we hear it and to free it from the same prejudices and struggles I have fought long and hard for all my life, from walking back hallways, from marching with our social leaders, from using my voice for good — I have been in the forefront of this battle longer than most of those voicing their opinions to win the right to sing our country’s Anthem on a stage as large as the Super Bowl LIII.”

Ms. Gladys went on to explain that the mixed messaging and negative tone surrounding her upcoming Star Spangled Banner performance will not get the better of her! “No matter who chooses to deflect with this narrative and continue to mix these two in the same message, it is not so and cannot be made so by anyone speaking it. I pray that this National Anthem will bring us all together in a way never before witnessed and we can move forward and untangle these truths which mean so much to all of us.”

Do you think Knight can change the hearts and minds of those trying to cancel her? Can she really bring the nation together?!

She's right she's getting blowback from little farts who don't even know what she's lived thru.

Just another example of identity poison politics and lock-think. These haters are telling her "Keep your place!" To just Shut up and do as you are told. Sad. But Free Speech! They have the right to show how ignorant they are.

What if half the things ever said
Turned out 2 be a lie
How will U know the Truth?

She is probably my favourite voice. I want to hear her perform Star Spangled Banner and I'm Canadian!

Before I knew Prince, I loved Gladys. Let her sing. This is not the same as playing Sun City during apartheid.

not even remotely comparable to even suggest is deeply disrespectful to the many that suffered under it.

Yes they’re my local team “today”, so I’ll root for them on that account, but these tramps whoring themselves around the nation are not my LA Rams to me just yet.
A win will go a little way forward.

No big deal for me - I don't turn on the TV until the actual game starts. I could care less about pre-game/halftime bullshit.

The anthem, the cheating, the refs, the terrible halftime show, the stupid rules, the SJW, the terrible commercials. The circus. The circus. The circus. Brady's deflated balls. The NFL.
What are you outraged about today? CNN has not told you yet?
