Jay-Z practically broke the internet on Tuesday when it was announced his company Roc Nation would partner with the NFL on its entertainment and Inspire Change Initiative. 

As usual, a lot of people have a lot to say about the deal, especially when it comes for former footballer Colin Kaepernick, known for kneeling during the National Anthem in protest of police brutality and racism against African-Americans in the United States. One of those people happens to be Kaepernick's longtime friend and former teammate Eric Reid -- and he was not pleased.

Reid took up issue with something the New York rapper said during Wednesday's news conference.

"... Everybody knows I agree with what you're saying [in Kaepernick's underlying message]," Jay-Z explained. "So what are we gonna do? ... [Help] millions and millions of people, or we get stuck on Colin not having a job."

But the Carolina Panthers safety was not having it.

"These aren’t mutually exclusive," Reid tweeted. "They can both happen at the same time! It looks like your goal was to make millions and millions of dollars by assisting the NFL in burying Colin’s career."

Reid wasn't the only one who wasn't a fan of the NFL's collaboration. Apparently, Kaepernick wasn't a happy camper either.

Jay-Z admitted to  speaking with the former quarterback before making the deal, stating that the two did have a conversation on Monday and, according to The Atlantic, an anonymous source close to Kaepernick said: "It was not a good conversation." 

Kaepernick still has something to look forward to though, even if it does seem like the music mogul has moved past his cause. After three years out of the league, The Philadelphia Eagles could be the 31-year-old's ticket back on the field.
