Kaepernick’s Lawyer Bashes Super Bowl Halftime Performer Adam Levine
Infamous kneeler Colin Kaepernick is at it again. Apparently, he feels he has not put enough nails into the NFL’s coffin. Kaepernick’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, came out against Adam Levine from Maroon Five. He claimed that Levine should know better than to work with the NFL.
“If you’re going to cross this ideological or intellectual picket line, then own it, and Adam Levine certainly isn’t owning it,” Geragos fumed on “Good Morning America” on Friday. “It’s a cop-out when you start talking about, ‘I’m not a politician; I’m just doing the music.’ Most of the musicians who have any kind of consciousness whatsoever understand what’s going on here.”
Geragos was referring to an interview that Levine gave explaining why he chose to perform at the Super Bowl.
“No one thought about it more than I did,” he says. “No one put more thought and love into this than I did. … I spoke to many people, most importantly though, I silenced all the noise and listened to myself, and made my decision about how I felt.”
He later hinted that the performance would benefit everyone.
“They will be [heard] — that’s all I want to say because I don’t want to spoil anything,” he shares. “And once again, I like to think that people know where I stand as a human being after two decades doing this. I’m not a speaker. I’m not a public speaker. I do speak, but it’s through the music. My life’s work and what I put out into the universe has been positive and hopefully inspiring … So, what I would say is, you know, we are going to do what we keep on doing, hopefully without becoming politicians and continuing to use the one voice we know how to use properly.”
“Levine also acknowledges that he did take the controversy into consideration when approaching the performance.
“I think we wanted to make sure we were able to speak once again through the music, so yes, absolutely, once we processed these things, it took a lot of looking inward and introspection and I thought to myself, ‘What is my greatest tool, you know, what is the thing that I can use to express myself … the best way for the band to express themselves, and how are we going to do it this year? What do we owe ourselves, what do we owe the people?'” he explains. “And that is what we did, and I am beyond proud of the finished product, and literally never, never been more excited in my entire life to present this to the people because I believe that it’s truly a reflection of all of us.”
Levine notes that he’s not alone when it comes to controversy about a halftime show and being a performer, he has to be able to handle criticism.
“I am not in the right profession if I can’t handle a bit of controversy. It is what it is. We would like to move on from it and speak through the music.”
Levine’s record label with the NFL donated half a million dollars to Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. Is that enough to shut Kaepernick up?
