EA edited Colin Kaepernick's name from your lyric in Madden 19

[Update: EA Sports has issued a statement saying it erred in censoring Colin Kaepernick's mention from "Big Banks." According for the developer, it had been lacking permission to work with Kaepernick's likeness from the game (apparently when he isn't a member through the NFL Players Association) and EA Sports Madden NFL Overdrive Coins mistakenly thought that it was not allowed to work with his name inside a song either. Kaepernick's name is going being edited way back in "Big Banks" within the August 6 patch which will arrive before Madden 19 launches on consoles.
Here's EA Sports' statement entirely:
"We made an unfortunate mistake together with his Madden NFL soundtrack. Members of many of us misunderstood the fact that while Buy Madden NFL Overdrive Coins we don’t have rights to feature in Colin Kaepernick inside game, it does not affect soundtracks. We screwed up, as well as edit shouldn't ever have happened. We will make sure it is right, with an update to Madden NFL 19 on August 6 that could include the reference again. We meant no disrespect, and we apologize to Colin, to YG and Big Sean, for your NFL, for all of their fans and our players for this mistake."]
