Now we know who Rihanna (maybe) stands with, despite the backlash Colin has faced.

The comedian spoke out on Instagram on Friday, following a report from Us Weekly saying Rihanna turned down the halftime show because she didn't agree with the NFL's stance on his kneeling protest.

"The NFL and CBS really wanted Rihanna to be next year's performer in Atlanta", the source told Hautman.

Schumer tagged Kaepernick in her post, telling "anyone who says" kneeling is "disrespectful to our military" should "read up" on all the veteran support the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback has received.

Maroon 5 will perform at halftime.
