EA Censors the Name of Colin Kaepernick in Madden NFL 19

10/11/2018

'Big Bank' by YG with 2 Chainz, Big Sean and Nicki Minaj is one of the 31 songs that make up the soundtrack of Madden's new release. The original verse of Big Sean says: "You are all the same, I am more like Colin Kaepernick".
Kaepernick is a controversial figure in soccer and in politics for protesting against police brutality by dunking during the national anthem in 2016, which was his last year with the 49ers. His protest resonated in the NFL, and other players began to get on their knees, attacking the conservative figures and President Trump. After leaving the team, Kaepernick continues as a free agent, forcing him to file a complaint with the NFL.
A Twitter user noticed that EA also removed all traces of the player in Madden 18.
Big Sean posted on Twitter a few words of support for Kaepernick. "It's disappointing that @NFL & @EA have deleted the name of @ Kaepernick7 from my verse in Big Bank for Madden 19, as if it were an offensive word," he said. "He's not a curse, it's a gift, and nobody in my team approves of this".
"A lot of love, brother, thanks for watching my back," the former 49ers player replied.
EA was contacted for more information, and a spokesperson responded as follows:
"We made an unfortunate mistake with our Madden NFL soundtrack, and team members did not understand the fact that not having Colin Kaepernick's rights in the game does not affect the soundtrack, we were wrong, and the editing should never have happened. We will do well, with an update that will be released on August 6 and will include the reference again. We did not want to disrespect anyone, and we apologize to Colin, YG and Big Sean, to the NFL, and to all our fans for this error".
What do you think? Do you think it was fair? Given the fact that we are living very repressing times, this action was expected. And buy Madden NFL 19 coins cheap to have more fun with friends in game. Let’s just play!
