Meek Mill has continued to receive a steady stream of support ever since a judge gave him a much-criticized two-to-four-year prison sentence for repeated parole violations in November.
James Harden, Colin Kaepernick, Reverend Al Sharpton and a string of Hip Hop artists, including Drake, Rick Ross and JAY-Z, have all called for Meek’s freedom. Now, the #FreeMeekMill campaign has popped up at the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.
Tit Stante, a 19-year-old Slovenian snowboarder, offered his show of support to Meek during the men’s halfpipe qualifiers. While waiting for his score at the bottom of the hill, Stante showed off his board with #FreeMeekMill written on it.

The campaign for Meek Mill’s freedom also popped up during the biggest football game of the year. At Super Bowl LII earlier this month, the Philadelphia Eagles entered the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis to Meek’s “Dreams and Nightmares.” Crowds in Philly, perhaps unsurprisingly, were chanting “Free Meek Mill” after the game.
