Didn’t watch the Super Bowl tonight? Neither did Rihanna.

The singer was on a flight during the big game, she revealed on Instagram, but she didn’t mind missing the New England Patriots and L.A. Rams face off. In a video posted to her Instagram story, Rih records audio of fellow passengers discussing how they could watch the Super Bowl on the plane, but she doesn’t seem interested in the slightest. She simply zooms in on her deadpan face (behind a pair of glamorous oversized shades), embodying what they call a whole ass mood.

She wrote in her caption, “How can we watch super bowl on the flight? Me:”

To follow up, Rih shared a clip of a passenger a few rows behind her, who presumably was one of the people concerned about watching the game mid-flight. She placed a sticker on his head reading, “Weirdo.”

It’s unclear whether Rihanna booked her flight during the Super Bowl on purpose. However, her reaction arrives after it was reported that she turned down performing at the Halftime Show in support of the football player and activist Colin Kaepernick, who knelt during the National Anthem in peaceful protest against racism and police brutality in America. He’s been out of work since March 2017, according to The New York Times.

A source told Us Weekly in October that the NFL and CBS offered Rihanna the Super Bowl gig, “but she said no because of the kneeling controversy. She doesn’t agree with the NFL’s stance.” Other stars who declined the offer included Pink, according to Entertainment Tonight, and Cardi B, who confirmed in a statement.

“The offer and exposure would have been great for Rihanna as she’s planning a new album and tour but she stuck to what’s right in her eyes,” an insider added to ET.

Other celebrities chose to boycott watching the Super Bowl tonight in support of Kaepernick, such as director Ava Duvernay, who tweeted, “To watch the game is to compromise my beliefs.”
