"Love and Hip Hop" cast member Alexis Skyy caught herself in the middle of a riot after shots were allegedly heard at a Super Bowl afterparty. This resulted in her being carried out of the club after injuring herself due to the incident. 

While hanging out at the 617 Social Lounge in Atlanta, partygoers reportedly heard two loud noises coming from inside the club. In a video obtained by TMZ, the chaos that occurred soon after was caught on camera. Because of this riot, Alexis injured her leg after being trampled on by people who wanted to head out as soon as possible. In pain, Alexis could not walk out alone and had someone lift her up and carry her out.

Fans from around America celebrated this year's Super Bowl win, where the Patriots defeated the Rams in a 13-3 game. It was not only the lowest-rated game in ten years but also the lowest-scoring ever. While many factors might have caused the low viewer ratings for this year's game, one could be the boycott that black personalities have called for in support of ex-NFL player Colin Kaepernick.

Colin Kaepernick received mixed reactions from critics for kneeling down during the National Anthem ceremonies during his games when he was still in the NFL. He did this to protest police brutality towards African-Americans. He also made the statement "America was never great," to protest the government's lack of involvement in denouncing police brutality towards African-Americans. While a lot of people thought of this as a courageous gesture to denounce police brutality and the issues surrounding the current administration, conservatives thought otherwise.

In support of Kaepernick's cause and his getting fired from the NFL due to his activism, African-Americans from all over the world have decided to boycott this year's Super Bowl to get their message across. Celebrities that have been vocal about their support include LeBron James, Mariah Carey, Rihanna, Stephen Curry, Angela Davis, Chamillionaire, and more. Amid the boycott, the Super Bowl's ratings have sunk to an all-time low this year after more than a decade.
