Dr. Dre Takes A Knee With Colin Kaepernick

DJ Jazzy Jeff, Busta Rhymes, producer Hi-Tek, LeBron James and Kevin Durant are just a handful of celebrities endorsing the symbolic of the picture.

The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started a whole movement in a 2016 game after famously kneeled down upon his knees during the national anthem in protest at the police brutality. Four years later, the current climate in the united States is seemingly more divisive than ever. Shortly after the May police killing of 46-year-old Black man, George Floyd, the country erupted with protests and shouts of "black lives matter" filled the streets.

In a sign of solidarity, Dr. Dre and Kaepernick had a ceremonious knee to Instagram. He shared the photo with her five million Instagram followers on Sunday (July 26), written in the title, "Challenging", a nod to their HBO docu-series The Defiant Ones. .centered-ad {

As expected, Dre the comments section lit up with reactions of their famous friends. DJ Jazzy Jeff offered a simple, "My brother", while Busta Rhymes and producer Hi-Tek spoke about the use of a series of crown and strong arm emoji.

But the post also drew some criticism. Comments such as, "do something with your money instead of just kneeling and on the publication of the photographs with the lava of an american football player who plays the victim" and "the Millionaires can't talk about oppression. K
