Eminem apparently had some interesting ideas for his Super Bowl halftime show appearance, but the NFL wasn’t too thrilled about them.

According to Eriq Gardner of Puck reports, Eminem planned to take a knee in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick, but the league told him no because they wanted to avoid a “divisive culture war moment.”

Update: Eminem defied the NFL and took a knee during the halftime show

Update #2: The NFL claims they never said anything to Eminem about not kneeling.
