While many stars, like Rihanna, took part in a fan-made petition asking artists to drop out of the big game in an effort to support Colin amid his current situation with the NFL, Travis still decided to accept the league's invitation to perform.

Many people said the "Sicko Mode" star shouldn't perform in protest for the sportsman — who was banished from the league for his #TakeAKnee movement, which had him and several other NFL players refuse to stand during the national anthem at games in protest against police brutality and racial injustice.

Travis has taken a lot of criticism for agreeing to join Maroon 5 on stage at the NFL game next month. He attempted to ease the tension with the $500,000 donation he and the NFL agreed to make to non-profit social-justice organization Dream Corps.

While sources told Variety that the rapper had '"at least one" phone conversation with the NFL player before he confirmed his appearance, Colin's friends are calling the publication out, denying that the conversation ever happened.
