For the second consecutive year, the Madden NFL video game appears to have edited a song on its soundtrack to exclude the name of quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
In Madden NFL 19, set to be released Aug. 10 but available now via the “EA Access” subscription service, the song “Big Bank,” by YG, includes the lyric, “Feed me to the wolves now I lead the pack and s—. / You boys all cap, I’m more Colin Kaepernick.”
But the vulgarity and Kaepernick’s name have been removed from the verse on the game, according to a recording posted on Twitter by Jean Clervil.
EA Sports apologized in a statement for omitting Kaepernick’s name, and called the song’s alteration “an unfortunate mistake.”
