Like I said in the Morning Screencaps post, I never thought Colin Kaepernick sitting on the bench during the National Anthem would be the biggest news story of the weekend, but here we are.
We have athletes speaking out now, some on his side some on the other. There’s people writing columns on it and spending radio segments on it. It’s pretty absurd. Now Kaepernick’s own fans are joining the party. This guy, who obviously is on the “he should’ve stood” side of this argument, decided to burn Kaep’s jersey with the Star-Spangled Banner playing in the background.
I’m pretty sure we can assume this fan had already turned on Kaepernick last year when he got benched for Blaine Gabbert, and this was the straw that broke the camel’s back. After all that frustration and a Super Bowl loss, the time he decides not to stand for the National Anthem is trigger to burn the jersey. Respect.
