Roger Waters has challenged Maroon 5 to take a knee during their Super Bowl LIII performance this Sunday.
In a Facebook post he said, " My colleagues Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi are performing during the halftime show at the Super-bowl this coming Sunday, I call upon them to “take a knee” on stage in full sight. I call upon them to do it in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick , to do it for every child shot to death on these mean streets, to do it for every bereaved mother and father and brother and sister. My mother used to say to me, “In any situation there is nearly always a right thing to do, just do it.”
He also gave his support to a Change.org petition asking Maroon 5 to drop out of the halftime show. So far, 113,000 people have signed on.
To drive home his point he posted a video of him and his band taking a knee at the end of his Hartford show in September of 2017.
