Beyoncé made a surprise appearance at last night’s Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year Ceremony to present Colin Kaepernick with the Muhammad Ali Legacy Award.
The award is given annually to an athlete who uses sports as a platform to change the world. Colin Kaepernick did this by remaining seated while the national anthem played back in 2016 to protest police brutality towards black men. His action sparked similar protests by NFL players that continue to incite controversy in the present.
Beyonce’s entrance to present the award came as a surprise and the crowd was seen cheering with excitement in the footage.
