Rapper/actor Tip "T.I." Harris posed for photos with his sons Messiah Harris, left, and Domani Harris at the Los Angeles premiere of Marvel Studios' 'Ant-Man And The Wasp' at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, California on Monday.

The father-of-7 had a small role in the Ant-Man franchise debut. He reprises his role in 'Ant-Man And The Wasp'.

Also on Monday, T.I. announced his plans to boycott Super Bowl 53 in Atlanta over the National Football League's ban on player's kneeling during the National Anthem.

"I think there's a violation of constitutional rights being implemented to minority players who choose to have a peaceful silent protest,” T.I. told former ESPN anchor Jemele Hill.

“It’s really like you want us to shut up and take what we got coming to us in our communities, and that’s just not acceptable,” T.I. added. “And if that’s what you think about us, why should we really spend our money and show our extreme support of your corporation?”

The 37-year-old, whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., said fans should hurt the league (and Black players) financially by protesting the corporations that sponsor the NFL.

"We gotta go to the corporations,” T.I. added. “Stop spending our dollars with them until they press the politicians who press the police to do what we need to do until they respect our lives and consider us as equals or else they don’t deserve our dollars."

Super Bowl 53 will be played at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Feb. 3, 2019.

    Let me know how that works out, because after that Obama write up, I’m looking too.

  • hi-liter

    Whether he speaks out or not, he will be criticized either way...sooooo you can't please everyone. But I do wonder where this thing is going now that they have some established rules. Will many players stay in the locker room or will they just let it all die down.

    My dearest Clifford Harris (deep ass sigh):

    You know…I sometimes ride with your activism. Even when folks didn’t believe in you due to your personal BS. I think they can remain separate. But I have had QUITE enough of you as of late bruh.

    Furthermore, Colin started his protest WAY BACK in the 2016-2017 season dog. Where was your protest then? Bc this is YOU JUST LAST MONTH Cliff.

    So FOMF sir. And SIT DOWN SOMEPLACE AN SHADDUP. Jemele boo to you baby girl for entertaining this here mess too. I try to like you, then you go and do fukk shit like this. But congrats on NABJ Journalist of the Year Award though.

    Deep ASS Sigh took me right tf out!

  • hi-liter

    Can a person be a community "activist" but cheat on his wife from time to time? History tells us one doesn't have anything to do with the other, I'm just saying....Maybe he would be taken seriously if he was single and not married.

    I try with him. I truly damn do sis.

    The black community can't afford this foolishness. We need real leaders in and out of the household. What message is he sending to his sons and other black boys in the community? We need our black leaders to send the message that marriages are what we need, not messing around with bottle service girls and D-list actresses. Like I said leadership starts at home.

    I didnt know Martin was a womanizer until I was an adult. There is a way to do your business and keep it out the public.

  • MissHarlem

    I don't subscribe to the thinking that if you can't keep your dck in your pants then you can't speak facts or do what's right. That's asinine to me. Our prominent leaders was slangin dck in their heyday however it's all about how you do things. Perception beats reality sadly. Anyway I say all that to say stfu tip ?

  • Miss Thang

    I think one could argue that lying is a survival tactic for political reasons. Pure lambs get killed.

    The TMZs, the Sandra Rose's, FB, IG, Cell Phone Cameras, All shut that down.

  • SummerBaby

    I’m sew weak that you called him a simp. ???

  • Pitty Patty

    What's the difference? If you know you cant cheat and not get caught, how about not cheat. You right the differences now is that when a man cheats he has EVERYTHING to lose. Women knew their places back then, these hoes dont care in 2018. Its not worth the risk. You wanna be a male whore. Stay single. Its not rocket science.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    And he hurts his own credibility by being such a chauvinist.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    It’s a character flaw and makes one hard to trust.

    Although other “black leaders” have been known to cheat, it’s worth noting that there was no social media 30+ years ago. Things get out much faster now ?????

    What a joke. Funny he can boycott restaurants and other businesses but he cant boycott cheating and keeping his Panus in his pants.. Boi Bye

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Maybe you missed the news that Jemele was fired from her coveted ESPN co-hosting job for expressing her unwelcome political views on company time?

  • BEANTOWN BULLI

    LMAO!! His little arse will never stop cheating. Slapping asses, kissing on some little groupie. And whoever the camera person was was sneaky AF. T.I didnt even know he was being watched! I dont know why Tiny hasn't Left i mean he dont respect marriage!

  • BEANTOWN BULLI

    HAHAHAHHAHA!!!!

  • BEANTOWN BULLI

    PREEEEEEEAAAAAAACCCCHHHH!!!!!!!!!

  • FukkFolks2018

    Coveted when they losing more viewers than Redbox... daily. Yep. You are right Sandra.

  • itsjismemelly

    his boys are really growin

  • thrift.store.jungle

    but when will he boycott embarrassing his wife and family... repeatedly...

    this little man irks my being.

  • pure_rachet

    They are separated and going through with the divorce from what I hear. Tiny was even at the same event as TI's mistress.

  • Trace da Ace

    oh...and another last thought....TI...please sit your size 5T ass down and learn to be a better husband....set examples of how a man SUPPOSED to treat their WIFE....not some side hoe....

  • dru and neil

    Why did he need to announce his boycott of the Super Bowl? Is he that influential? Do any policy makers in the NFL care if TI isn't watching next year? I'm sorry he just bothers me with his self righteous pseudo intellectual, fake civic mindedness, fake pro black, fake family man crap.

  • dru and neil

    He is a chauvinist. Lost all respect for him when he came after Raven Simone for liking a tweet that Speech from Arrested Development wrote. TI took offense to it because it called out rappers like him but instead of confronting the male rapper who actually said it to begin with, you get mad at the woman because she's an easier target. Square off with another man if you're a man! Question the man who actually said what he said!

  • Waya Hedia

    OMG! The NFL is done now! tee hee!

  • Reina1718

    Somebody need to boycott him !

  • Reina1718

    Which mistress this time?

  • dru and neil

    I think it's his lack of respect for his wife that's aggravating to some. You got a problem with marriage, say it's pointless or draining, that's fine but why are you saying all this, while married? You're right a lot of our leaders were womanizers, but they were not so blatant about it. Why is his girlfriend attending public functions with he and his friends, hugged up with him? He must have serious feelings for her and just doesn't give a damn what people think, including his wife.

  • CocoBabe88

    I don’t understand. If these players want to affect change so bad why don’t they go in front of congress? What is protesting the NFL going to do?

  • MissHarlem

    Your comment just repeated my sentiment. At this point stfu tip and look in the mirror ?

  • DeJeri

    Kaperneck didn't even vote. I have no respect for him based on that fact alone.

  • Kemi

    Fix your home life before tryna lead. Lead by example for your kids. SM got receipts... get out of fake activism and fix ya life!!

  • dru and neil

    He does need to shut up. Why is he always talking bad about marriage, insinuating that being married to Tiny is a chore. She has probably put up with so much from that hobbit over the years! Men never get what they deserve. He deserves a dirtbag wife for being a dirtbag husband.

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    I cannot stand TI fake gangster, cheating, lying a$$.... shut your face and fix your home life.

  • Scorpio

    I could see him as the Wasp. In the movie and real life, irritating winged insect buzzing around. Swatting at him with a rolled magazine.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Just a Tip T.I. you need to clean up in front of your own house b4 you tell somebidy how to clean theirs. The nugga finna take on the entire NFL? Ion think so!!!!

  • pure_rachet

    I think her name is asia hepperson

  • Lachplesis Puika

    Jester has no any type of expertise to talk about politics. Somebody needs to tell him to shut up and stick to what he supposed to do - entertain public.

    Black ATL businesses for the win during SUPER BOWL. SHUT UP TI!!

  • Miss Thang

    I agree.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Agreed! Unfortunately he seems to be the type that’s not interested in that logic LOL.

  • soldierwoman89

    Shut up! See you at the tailgate!!

  • soldierwoman89

    Watchoo said!!!

  • dontgetblocked

    These players are on the job protesting. A business has the right to shut that down. If I walk into work with a BLM sign, my employers are going to send me home...possibly permanently. It causes a hostile environment. You can be fired and so can the football players. There's always a younger, stronger, and better player out there.

  • dontgetblocked

    Fake activists.

  • Deni Elliott

    Exactly... kneeling has done what... ??

  • 1BlueStar

    What he says makes sense...but would be more meaningful coming from someone else. He needs to "walk it like he talk it" and stop being a cheating ass, gun toting, women exploiting hypocrite.

  • 11pink123

    TI really does not get it, he is so pathetic it’s unbelievable. I don’t even see how Tiny can possible still be turned on by him, he’s such a loser. I can’t stand him anymore. Hes curupt, deceitful and evil but yet wants to be a savior. Ughhh he make me sick at this point.

    Well judging from the comments this boycott won't do much damage. I so wish it was coming from someone else because it needs to happen.
