Maroon 5: Drop Out of the Super Bowl Halftime Show

Rihanna has reportedly turned down the opportunity to perform in front of over 100 million people at the 2019 Super Bowl halftime show. Why? She supports Colin Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback who has been exiled from the NFL because of his decision to kneel during the national anthem. Kaepernick risked his career to take a knee for equality, and the NFL punished him for it. Until the league changes their policy and support players’ constitutional right to protest, no artists should agree to work with the NFL. Join me in asking Maroon 5 to drop out of the 2019 Super Bowl halftime show. Rihanna is not the first major artist to turn down the Super Bowl halftime show. Jay-Z turned down a request to perform at the 2017 Super Bowl, and even addressed it in his 2018 song “Apesh*t.” The lyrics say, “I said no to the Super Bowl: you need me, I don't need you. Every night we in the endzone, tell the NFL we in stadiums too," while the music video shows a line of men on one knee. Comedian Amy Schumer has also weighed in, praising Rihanna and encouraging Maroon 5 to follow her lead and step down. Schumer also said that she will refuse to do any commercials that would air during the big game. “Hitting the NFL with the advertisers is the only way to really hurt them," she said. Maroon 5 has made music over the years featuring artists from all genres, including Rihanna, Cardi B and Kendrick Lamar — all of whom have publicly supported Kaepernick in his decision to protest the violent racism sweeping the United States. Maroon 5 must do the same. The band has a chance to stand on the right side of history. If they don’t, they will be remembered for choosing to side with the NFL over its players. The band’s lead singer, Adam Levine, has not shied away from politics in the past. He has been a strong supporter of same sex marriage and LGBT rights. The band even changed the location of a show because the venue supported anti-gay marriage laws. If the band can take a stand for LGBT rights, they should do the same for these players. Colin Kaepernick has sacrificed his NFL career to call out violent racism in America, and players across the country have followed his lead. Rihanna, Jay-Z, Amy Schumer and others have refused to work with the NFL. Maroon 5: Americans look to artists and celebrities as leaders, and you have huge opportunity to use your influence to take a stand. Sign to tell Maroon 5 to drop out of the Super Bowl halftime show in solidarity with Kaepernick and players who #TakeAKnee.

Petition to Cartoon Network, Time Warner, Warner Brothers, Craig McCracken, Turner

The Powerpuff Girls Movie on Blu-ray

The Powerpuff Girls was a successful cartoon and became legend in cartoon history over the last two decades. Fifteen years ago, The Powerpuff Girls Movie was released during the summer and fans like me were impressed on how good it was, but there had been negative reviews and I didn't care what they've said or thought about it over the years. The movie was released to VHS & DVD and years later, there hasn't been a Blu-ray release, so I made this online petition for the movie to be on Blu-ray with features include: Marketing campaign (TV spots, Got Milk ads, Air Heads, Burger King, Subway, Kellogg's, etc.)  Turner Classic Movies Wizard of Oz Sing-a-Long co-hosting segments with Robert Osbourne No Secrets "That's What Girls Do" Music Video The Quick "Girls Against the World" Music Video Cherish "Chemical X" Music Video Interview with creator/animation director Craig McCracken Rosie O'Donnell Show segment Early Test Sequence Fans Speak Out Widescreen HD format of the movie 5.1 & 7.1 Surround Sound Along with the other original bonus features from DVD. It'll be like a collector's edition and we also demand a digital release of the movie on iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play in the right video quality. If they can't do it, I'll need support to make it happen 'cuz we love the franchise in every way. If we're going to commemorate the movie's 15th year, then sign & share this petition. #PPGMovie #PPGMovie15
