Colin Kaepernick is still fighting with, what now seems like everyone from the NFL, to the president, to video game execs. EA sports recently issued an apology for editing Kaepernick’s name out of a song on the Madden 19 soundtrack. In a statement on Thursday EA representatives called the edit an ‘unfortunate mistake’. Big Sean references Kaepernick in his song ‘Big Yank’ however, EA removed his name in an advanced copy of the game.
JUST IN: EA Sports says it didn’t mean to omit Colin Kaepernick’s name in YG’s song it licensed for use in Madden ‘19. Will add his name back in update. pic.twitter.com/ck8UhxI1fu

It’s disappointing and appalling @NFL & @EA took @Kaepernick7’s name out of my verse on Big Bank for Madden 19, like it was a curse word. When he's not a curse, he's a gift! Nobody from my team approved any of this.
