While introducing Demi Lovato at the 2017 VMAs, Cardi B gave an unexpected shoutout to Colin Kaepernick. "Colin Kaepernick, as long as you kneel for us, we gon be standing with you, baby," she said. Kaepernick is currently a free agent after taking a kneel during the national anthem in 2016. He was personally targeted by Donald Trump for his political stance as recently as March.
