As if that weren’t bad enough, don’t expect to see any clever Super Bowl ads featuring comedian Amy Schumer, last seen being arrested (at her request) at a protest outside the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings.
Was Schumer even offered any Super Bowl spots? We don’t know, but in any case, you won’t be seeing her face during the big game, reportedly to show support for Kaepernick’s protests against police brutality.
Amy Schumer says she won't appear in any Super Bowl ads this year because she supports Colin Kaepernick and his protests against racism and police brutality https://t.co/sayitBQxgh
