Beyonce, Colin Kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick was presented with the SI Muhammad Ali Legacy Award during Sports Illustrated’s 2017 Sportsperson of the Year Awards at the Barclays Center on Tuesday, Dec. 5.

Beyonce Knowles, 38, surprised everyone when she sauntered onstage wearing a barely-there sequined black mini dress which showed off her thick shimmering thighs.

Beyonce wore a sequined dress from LaQuan Smith Spring 2018 collection. The dress is based on the Michael Bush designed sparkly jumpsuit originally worn by Michael Jackson in his “Rock With You” music video.

“Hello everyone! It feels so good to be here on such a special night of appreciation,” Beyonce said as she struggled to read from a teleprompter.

“Thank you, Colin Kaepernick. Thank you for your selfless heart and your conviction. Thank you for your personal sacrifice. Colin took action with no fear of consequences or repercussions, only hope to change the world for the better. To change perception, to change the way we treat each other — especially people of color. We’re still waiting for the world to catch up. It’s been said that racism is so American that when we protest racism, some assume we’re protesting America.”

Beyonce made a point to note that Colin has respect for the soldiers who died so he and NFL millionaires could be free to kneel during the National Anthem.

“So let’s be very clear,” she continued. Colin has always been very respectful of the individuals who selflessly serve and protect our country and our communities and our families. His message is solely focused on social injustice for historically disenfranchised people. Let’s not get that mistaken.”

After accepting the award, Kaepernick said, “With or without the NFL’s platform, I will continue to work for the people because my platform is the people.”

But not everyone was impressed. Some bloggers criticized Kaepernick and compared him to disgraced actor Jesse Williams, who also pretended to be down “for the people”, only to abandon his faithful black wife for a Caucasian woman.

    Lmao struggles to read and not the Michael Jackson outfit.. hahhahhahaha

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Bey looks EXCELLENT.
    (And I am not a Stan/Fan)

  • L.T.L. Since 2007
  • R in NYC

    Lawd…..why Bey looks high? Why she sounds like a runaway slave?
    Matt and Tina should have hired a speech coach a long time ago.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Bey looks trashy especially for a mother of three.

  • Kayke

    Bey, why the booty pad?!

  • unknown user

    Question: What is his job now? Is he ever going to be signed to another team? What is he doing now?

  • 1BlueStar

    She still got the pregnant face.

  • unknown user

    A booty gurdle.

  • https://www.instagram.com/nymagee/ Ny MaGee

    Yeah, when she speaks she often sounds like she’s struggling with the English language.

  • Jen_no_juice

    Why it look like Bey got something around her thighs to make her booty bigger???

  • Kayke

    A booty gurdle? ? Heads to Google…oh that. Makes sense. Ass just sticks straight off the lower back….. Completely takes the small of the back away…. looks weird.

  • oshh16

    Interesting choice.

  • Bonsai

    Bey’s speech did not sound natural. Those words should flow without you having to read a teleprompter. Colin K is fine – nothing more, nothing less just fine and that’s it. There will never ever be another Malcolm X or Huey. Everyone else is just imitation.

  • ShelbyMoore

    Why does she keep on allowing her people to release pics of her looking all thin and in shape when she actually looks like this? I’m not saying she looks bad; as a matter of fact, she looks good for someone who just had kids. She looks the way a woman is expected to look after having kids, but she keeps on releasing pics that obviously don’t look like her.

    She would look more human if she would just let women in on her struggles after having a child instead of trying to hide it and releasing pics that aren’t of her. Yes, I understand that people touch pics up (IDKY, cause people will eventually still see what you actually look like), but making yourself look totally different is weird to me.

  • LaffinatYOU

    I’m so sick of these attention seeking thot. Must she always be dressed like a high end escort at these cermonies? I miss when we had classy entertainers like janet, toni and whitney before she became a crackhead.

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    Sick of hearing about both of these people.

  • Owww76

    She HAS never been the best speaker, sounding like she just learned her Hooked On Phonics flash cards

  • Owww76

    That girl still cant talk to save her life. Congrats to Colin on his award!

  • Karen Brady

    His current occupation is being fine.?

  • Karen Brady

    NEVER. Painful.

  • Lady_Elle

    I was with you until… Toni. Really Toni was one of the FIRST TALENTED singers that started wearing very little… nothing classy about her!

  • Lady_Elle

    I agree… I wish they would spend some money on a professional to help her in this area of weakness.

  • xenaD

    She needs to start memorizing lines… this feels so childish to criticize the way she speaks, but I can’t get over it & im glad I’m not the only petty one here this morning

  • Karen Brady

    Agreed..and getting worse if that’s even possible now that she’s running around with Birdman.

  • Karen Brady

    They haven’t done it all these years. I don’t see them doing it now. I mean after all she is Queen. FLAWLESS. She woke up like this.

  • tia

    For her poor diction and speech, she exceeds expectations in other areas. Unfortunately, we can’t have it all and that’s just how it is.
    Congrats to Colin on his honor!!

  • Karen Brady

    Wouldn’t help.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    This bytch can never steal Kolins spot light with her fake demonic azz…. anyways congratulations Kolin you deserve this and more stay true …. Much love to him….. Much love … A good guy

  • Stan4NoOne

    Her hair is really cute.

  • what?why

    This is Jay, via Beyonce, and it’s only for exposure with these two. I have to agree she does look trashy (fake butt, hair) but her choice.

  • Indies beauty

    Queen Bey

  • stav

    That butt is quite questionable!

  • Mec-One

    Petty central station up in here lol

  • stav

    Sorry not sorry Beyonce’ please go over seas for a few years! She has been over saturated in the media. Her hair looks like a style your mother used to give you in elementary school, her butt is very questionable, and really no one cares to see her. All of sudden her and her husband are quite visible ,whereas they use to very secluded and quiet about everything. Something must be going on with these two , they seem very thirsty now to be seen , and to tell all their business suddenly!

  • 5000BlinK

    You always hating on BEYONCE Auntie #BlackfolkcanthaveNOherosorsheros
    rolls eyes
    Morning yall

  • 5000BlinK

    Let me tell all you Men something… and Women who built like a STOP sign… I have always been told “depending what you are wearing…you thick.. so sometimes I have a butt in pics and in person and sometimes my shyt flat

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Interesting pick of fashion for the Queen. I would have thought she would have worn something a lil more demure but oh well. I think she is nervous when it comes to speaking in public which makes no sense cause Bey been gyrating on stage for 20+ years now smh…

  • 5000BlinK

    Because people make fun of her accent and the way she talk… Southern and they assume she is a dumb beauty

  • Tee Gee

    TOOO MUCH!

  • Tee Gee

    yep

  • PROPHETMAJOR

    I watched this video last nite! Classic.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Y is Beyonce even presenting? They couldn’t get nobody else?

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Lol @ she struggled to read lawd ???, she looks great. Congrats Colin???

  • Ni Ni

    Beyonce just cain’t get right, smh. At her age, she should know what is not appropriate. Then again, she kinda slow so i guess I need to stop being so hard on her.

  • VernadineTheQueen?

    She has a butt lifter on! I bet!!

  • VernadineTheQueen?

    BEY HAS A BUTT LIFTER ON. THEY HUG YOU RIGHT AROUND THE THIGH AREA! I SHOULD KNOW….I HAVE SEVERAL!! ???

  • Sorry_Not_Sorry

    She’s probably tried hard to conceal that southern drawl

  • Coy little wink

    Ccorrection…Colin’s afro stole the spotlight ?

  • MsPam

    Thank you, that hairstyle and dress is something Blu should be wearing!

  • Kim’s Original Face

    “Beyonce said as she struggled to read from a teleprompter.”

    Why did this make me giggle…

    Great that he is being recognized for what he is doing.

    Thickyonce looking goodt!

  • disqus_FW7pCIigCY

    Really Sandra… so Beyoncé showed up at the ceremony without an invite, went backstage, grabbed the award, told the announcer she was there, walked out on stage, made up an impromptu speech, and introduced Colin….. Wow….SMH at you saying she stole his spotlight… no she was invited By SI… to shine the spotlight on the ceremony ???

  • Simone

    Sandra is just too much sometimes.

  • Simone

    So the majority of people on here worrying about Beyonce. SMDH.
    I just cannot this morning with the hate. SHE STILL A RICH BAD BITCH.
    Now lets salute Kaepernick! #blackpower

  • freelancepimp .

    Beyonce’s hips and butt look a little more rounder than I remembered.

  • Kanyade

    i like those heels, Beyoncelita. very cute.

  • We Can Do This

    Even with that 20 foot afro, he’s still not black enough for me…

    Also, never expect or accept an award for your own cause or beliefs, it’s sacrilegious to me.

    Beyonce looked stunning and only if she could mimic this style daily she would be the true queen she inspires to be.

  • Ang

    I agree the dress wasn’t right for this event. That outfit would have been perfect for The VMAs, BET Awards (if she ever goes without being nominated for everything) or the Soul Train Awards (if she would ever show up). But, it wasn’t a good fit for this event.

  • Ryan

    I’m sure he didn’t complain. And as for the naysayers, this man laid low for the most part all season. Some folks just ain’t happy unless they got something to b*tch about. CONGRATS to Colin on his award, no hate or bitterness here!!

  • DONT TRUST BIRACIALS

    Butt implants and bad hair day. Kaepernick is in my opinion the same as Jesse Williams, BS!

  • Ang

    Lol. I thought I was the only one thinking that about her hair here and on the last post. That’s the hairstyle I wore everyday in middle school. I don’t understand how this woman can’t get outfits right from head to toe with all her money and assistants. It’s like it’s always one thing that throws it off.

    They are more visible now because they are obsessed with the spotlight. Bey sang it on Jay’s song Hollywood, “once you taste it you can’t live without it.” She needs to be center of attention all the time.

  • Angela Winbush

    Bey & her butt pad…smh ? Just threw the whole outfit off…Bey was thisclose to slaying…but she just had to put on her damn Depends.

  • SDot

    Slay!

  • Owww76

    Basically! Why couldnt Laila Ali present. Beyonce and her Barney infused dialect was painful to watch.

  • Karen Brady

    I like your name

  • Karen Brady

    lol

  • Quitedeliteful

    Bey & her butt pad
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    LOLLLOLLOLOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!

  • RICHIE_RICH

    She is coined and slaying. That’s our blacks people always got to hate about something.

  • Karen Brady

    On BG there is a blind post that he’s talking about his cheating so openly now because some women may come forward with accusations or what have you and he wants to play it like they were affairs and not harrassment or whatever. We’ll see.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    So Bey done gone and bought and build her body..LAWWD!!!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    You notice that too…bih gone try and sat this babies have her a butt.. YEAH RIGHT… SHE DIDN’T EVEN CARRY THEM BABIES IN THE FIRST PLACE!!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    She JUST RICH and badly aloof!

  • RICHIE_RICH

    How is she slow?

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Slay the kids and bad built women!!!

  • Quitedeliteful

    Good for Collin! He has done what Jesse would not and could not do — he made a statement and stood on principal which cost him his livelihood. He coulda just gone along with the program and made millions. I’m glad that they honored him.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Bouncey has on some nice shoes. I think it was a nice touch that she presented him the award — probably made his day…

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    And it looked obvious.

  • Marlika

    She kills me being all about the cause.?? When in the beginning she was trying to be as white as possible and let not forget the L’Oréal commercial where she claimed she was of a mixed heritage. ??

    Congratulations Colin!! The conversation had to start again from someone. Glad you stepped up!!

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Lol okay blondie. That spanks is working hard af them mama tina genes will not be denied. Spread girl. Ima ignore the fake conscious speech.

    Anyway, i love colin and what he stand for

    Ps yes heaux im blond too but i aint selling you stories of fake black pride so GIT

  • unknown user

    Well, yes. Lol

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    No she didnt its spanks she pudgy af underneath check the pic with g in the elevator with his red pimp suit and her yellow carpet dress.

  • AListDiva29

    I like that dress, but her butt looks fake and that wig looks terrible! Sorry, but why do women think that fried 80s perms look cute?!

  • AListDiva29

    He was raised by white adoptive parents who were upper middle class, that’s why he needs the afro to make himself look more African American, so ppl think he’s a relatable black male!

  • Clopretty

    I looks like beyonce got a butt lifter on!! something just isnt right! i can see the lines lol

  • hottlanta

    She turned black when she made that Black History anthology Formation album. Even SNL did a skit nd called it the night Beyoncé became black when she released the album. That shyt was funny as hell. Enjoy!!!!

  • Solstice

    Beyoncé 38 today? ??? Auntie you tickle me lol. Endless shade smh, endless shade…

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Bout like Michael Jackson, Extremely Shy but tore the stage Up

  • kitttykatlady

    Butt sitting up high

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    I thought she looked great

  • Solstice

    That wig is tragic!

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    I love her hair and thought it looked very beautiful.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    She probably came up not speaking out with her strong family members, including her sister. Bey was the quietest one that took the spotlight!!!

  • Ang

    She looks good but not for this event

  • Ang

    Her dad said that too. So it’s not really shade.

  • We Can Do This

    He can’t change who he is but we all know men who look like him aren’t targeted by the police.

  • Blue

    Lordy. Beyonce filling out that dress like it was an application. My goodness. I see you.

  • Blue

    Hahahahaha. Thanks. I forgot about this!

  • Ni Ni

    Explaining that to a stan would be useles and tiresome, hun.

  • Liah

    Hello everyone! It feels so good to be here on such a special night of appreciation,” Beyonce said as she struggled to read from a teleprompter.

    LMAO!!!..The shade is REAL!!!

  • Solstice

    ? Very!!

  • Solstice

    Mmm yeah but there is shade throughout the post. Hence the endless shade. Beyoncé being 38 today was a question. Auntie tends to make reference to Bey’s age (whatever # that may be) depending on how she feels for the day. ? And it tickles me.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Wait. She’s not 38? ?

  • Ang

    Yea I got that ? It was a joke bc you can’t really shade someone with the truth. Bey is actually 38.

  • hottlanta

    Laila is in hiding since she said she can’t openly take up black causes because it will defend white people. I am sure Ali was spinning in his grave when she said that.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    What about the baby bun to the side of the wig?….smh…

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    Please keep it real. She is not for black people…she is for that check. Serena looked a plum fool in her video twerking on the floor….while Beyonce was sitting on the throne with long.blonde hair. It must have slipped Serena”s mind that she was a million dollar accomplished sports figure. Smh.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Her non ig photoshop pics are a tragedyyyyy

  • Solstice

    ??

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    That is the only logical explanation to him and beyonce being so public and open about his filth. No way would beyonce allow him to shed light on her fake strong woman act unless they had no choice. Kinda like kevin hart pre apologizing for banging yt heaux

  • nomika brown

    Beyonce still the queen

  • Liah

    RIGHT!!!!

  • Liah

    Exactly!!!

  • Liah

    Yes!! and the fro is EVERYTHING!!!!!!

  • Liah

    Because shes insecure…Money dosnt buy confidence!

  • SumthinSweeter

    Beyonce looks good and thick. Proud of Kap too!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Nobody cared about Colin or that trophy when Beyonce walked out onstage looking like a 2-piece chicken dinner.

  • Cali

    Beyonce’s edges are just magnificent, she looks beautiful too

  • MoniquetheGeek

    I like Colin. Trust. HUGE fan and supporter of what he’s doing.
    BUT you can’t be mad at Bey for “being all about the cause” and congratulate Colin at the same time. It took his fiance to open his eyes to the plight of black people…He hasn’t been kneeling his entire career…

  • ShelbyMoore

    The shat is sad af. She just makes herself look like a damn clown. If she had released these pics, the dress would have been looking bomb af on her.

  • CaramelDrop

    Don’t forget the slay of the bald headed heauxs….. they stay hating on what they can’t grow from their scalp. ??

  • CaramelDrop

    Auntie is known for photoshopping too. She may have a post at the end of the year asking if we know which pic she photoshopped- I wouldn’t be surprised if she warped the pic on purpose. She still looks good to have had twins less than a year ago.

  • Guess Who

    Sandra absolutely despises Beyonce. Seriously, I’m beginning to think something happened that Sandy ain’t touching on because it’s borderline crazy. The hate is in perpetual motion and never waivers, lol.

    Sandra, if you were to do a medical minute on your disdain for Bey, what would the disorder be and…what happened? Yall got funk? What’s the history between you two?

  • CaramelDrop

    I don’t know for a fact, but it’s been said Beyoncé filed a restraining order because SR was stalking her lol….. SR been on a smear campaign every since way before 2009 when I read that was her issue.

  • Blah Blahhhhh

    Hater’s are going to hate. That is the only action she gets.

  • Guess Who

    WOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW! I remember reading something about this on lipstick alley back in the day. hmmmm…

  • Liah

    It really is sad!

  • RICHIE_RICH

    How so ? I mean you stated it, so It shouldn’t be hard to explain????? Not a Stan , just a Fan.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Them too ??

  • Munchosgirl

    So how old are Kelly, Latavia and LeToya?

  • Munchosgirl

    But she is of mixed heritage…Heritage being the key word…

  • Ang

    I have no idea. I only know what Matthew said. He said it multiple times in an interview about their early days. He said LA Reid had a competion with the kids to see who would come out first bc they were all the same age. He said Pink was the lead singer of a group at the time. He said a couple times Beyoncé, Usher and Pink are the same age and that Beyoncé and Pink are actually the exact same age. Doesn’t sound like something he’d get wrong. Pink and Beyoncé’s birthdays are only 4 days apart. Pink is 38. Usher just turned 39.

  • starbright9449

    Well I’ve seen her Grandma or whomever it was and that bish looked white. She does have mixed heritage, whats wrong with that? Geesh.

  • starbright9449

    You mean butt pads?

  • starbright9449

    You still clicked the post.

  • starbright9449

    Butt pads or weight gain

  • stav

    And! Whenever I feel like clicking .. I will, now what? I said what I said!

  • Unhappy American

    I remember this ?

  • MRiGOThim

    Stop playin Auntie…we all know Beyonce read w/ a 4th grade education…

  • Applebum

    Get this chick off the stage, wtf?!! That was so painful and cringeworthy to watch. Even with the teleprompter she sounded illiterate. Why is she presenting? She’s never really talked about black issues now she’s presenting awards on racism. Whatever.

  • Applebum

    First she had her lips done while she was supposedly pregnant, now the babies gave her a huge butt too. ??

  • kekeb

    Girl Bey is TOO SEXY!!!!!

  • Minkie Babie

    They will never get it. I just hope they got her home in time to put her back in her casing. Whoever is backing Colin and his fight the power ass please come more original than Angela Davis.

  • Minkie Babie

    I thought so too. She needs to write a book on selling ass. Shit she is Queen of that shit for real.

  • ZoraNealHurstonsNiece

    What’s so inappropriate? Curious? Let that child live. Ni, im shocked. Whole hater much!?!?….

  • Lady_Elle

    This is not simple memorization. Many of these shows use teleprompters. This allows for last minute changes.

    Enunciation and pronunciation are skills typically learned during our primary years. Some learn them later in life.

    Her team needs to push her to work on this weakness.

  • Miss Thang

    I agree. She is slow, and appeals to the lowest common denominator.

  • starbright9449

    Lmao you click then complain.
