Numerous stars are boycotting the Super Bowl over the NFL's alleged racist treatment of Colin Kaepernick.

COLIN KAEPERNICK'S ATTORNEY SLAMS MAROON 5 FOR PERFORMING AT SUPER BOWL

"I will not be a spectator, viewer or supporter of the #SuperBowl today in protest of the @NFL’s racist treatment of @Kaepernick7 and its ongoing disregard for the health + well-being of all its players. To watch the game is to compromise my beliefs. It’s not worth it," "Selma" director Ava DuVernay tweeted Sunday.

She punctuated her tweet with "#ImWithKap."

DuVernay, 46, shared similar sentiments ahead of last year's Super Bowl as well, tweeting a photo with the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback with the caption, "The only football player I'm checking for this weekend. 'Cause I cannot pretend that everything is okay with this enterprise."

Other stars endorsed DuVernay's Super Bowl LIII boycott.

"Me too," Rosanna Arquette replied simply.

Rapper Common quoted activist Dr. Angela Davis, writing, “I’m no longer accepting the things I cannot change. I’m changing the things I cannot accept” Dr. Angela Davis. #ImWithKap."

Common previously said of the Super Bowl, "I ain't with supporting the NFL. They don't really support black people ... They're not supporting [Colin] Kaepernick. Kaepernick said he's standing up for people who are being shot down, black and brown. The NFL basically blackballed him. They've shown how they feel about us for real. I respect the NFL players, but the owners, man, they ain't shown nothing."

Actress Lena Waithe posted the same image as Common on her Instagram account, which she captioned with a fist emoji.

Nick Cannon posted a video reciting a poem about police brutality, slavery and oppression of minorities throughout history. He captioned the video with a drive to donate to Kaepernick's Know Your Rights Camp, which aims to raise awareness of higher education, self-empowerment, and how to properly interact with law enforcement.
