EA Sports Apologizes And Puts Colin Kaepernick’s Name Back In Madden 19

EA Sports has corrected what it called “an unfortunate mistake” by putting Colin Kaepernick’s name back into the YG song “Big Bank” on the Madden 19 soundtrack.

Twitter user @jeanclervil noted that the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback’s name had been removed from Big Sean’s verse on the song.

The original lyrics to the song are “feed me to the wolves now I lead the pack and s—, you boys all cap, I’m more Colin Kaepernick,” but when Kaepernick’s name was supposed to be said, it was edited out.

Both YG and Big Sean took to Twitter to complain about EA Sports’ decision to remove Kapernick’s name, and the video game company apologized and said it would add his name back on an update that happened Monday. August 6.

In the company’s apology for editing out Kaepernick’s name, it said, “Members of the team misunderstood the fact that while we don’t have rights to include Colin Kaepernick in the game, this doesn’t affect the soundtrack.”
