JUST IN: EA Sports says it didn’t mean to omit Colin Kaepernick’s name in YG’s song it licensed for use in Madden ‘19. Will add his name back in update. pic.twitter.com/ck8UhxI1fu

A mistake? It sounds like a convienent excuse and it sounds like EA Sports is attempting to take the heat off the NFL.
They had to know a move like that was going to eventually get noticed and when it was noticed, people weren’t going to be happy about it.
