"Members of our team misunderstood the fact that while we don’t have rights to include Colin Kaepernick in the game, this doesn’t affect soundtracks," the statement reads. "We messed up, and the edit should never have happened." The track features a line where Big Sean gives a shoutout to Kaepernick: "Feed me to the wolves, now I lead the pack and shit. You boys all cap, I'm more Colin Kaepernick." Sean addressed the removal of Kaepernick's name on Twitter, adding, "Nobody from my team approved any of this."
In addition to issuing an apology to Kaepernick, YG, Big Sean, among others, EA Sports states that the issue will be resolved with an update coming on August 6.
