Let’s be honest, not too many people are fond of Colin Kaepernick right about now.

His decision to not stand during the national anthem citing his absence of pride for a country that oppresses people of color got under the skin of many. With that said, the 49ers QB did not break any league or team rules, and exercised him full right as an American to either stand or not stand during the anthem.

Kaepernick was attacked on social media following the incident, many of which is tough to read.


The QB has since lost thousands of followers on social media. The ironic thing is, the one’s who have been attacking Kaepernick only make his point that much stronger, whether you side with it or not.
