Rapper Big Sean Rips EA Sports For Editing Out Colin Kaepernick Mention In His Song From Madden Soundtrack

Colin Kaepernick is currently and is fighting the NFL in court for keeping him out the league. It seems EA Sports doesn’t want to ruffle any feathers with the NFL so they edited out Kaepernick’s name out of Big Sean’s verse out of the song “Big Bank” which is featured on this year’s Madden soundtrack.

The soundtrack contains the song Big Bank from YG. The lyrics include a variety of words that were scrubbed from the song, including profanities, a racial slur, vague references to sexual activity, and the acronym CBD (a substance containing cannabis).

Also scrubbed from the song was, you guessed it, the name “Colin Kaepernick.”

First spotted (as best we can tell) by the Twitter account with the handle “@jeanclervil,” the tweet has been retweeted by Kaepernick’s girlfriend, Nessa Diab. PFT has confirmed by listening to the song on an advance copy of the game that, indeed, Kaepernick’s name has been removed from the lyrics.

Big Sean took Twitter to address EA Sports’ censoring Kaepernick’s name out of the song in Madden.

Not a good look for EA Sports.
