Update to this story.
Via Daily Mail:
Former ESPN reporter Britt McHenry has slammed GQ Magazine for naming Colin Kaepernick Citizen of the Year.
McHenry claimed that there were many more worthwhile football players than Kaepernick who sparked a national protest when he began kneeling during the national anthem last season to protest racial inequality and police brutality.
‘JJ Watt raised $37 million for Hurricane Harvey victims. 37 MILLION! But Kaepernick refused to stand for our national anthem (a year ago) and is Citizen of the Year. Right…’ she tweeted after the announcement. […]
‘Wear socks depicting police officers as pigs; wear Fidel Castro as a fashion statement IN MIAMI; sue NFL for collusion when gf compares owners to slave owners… Win Citizen of the Year,’ she wrote. ‘Serve in the US Military…nothing. What a joke, GQ. #Kaepernick.’
Kaepernick donned a T-shirt emblazoned with photos from a 1960 meeting between Malcolm X and Fidel Castro during a post-game news conference in November 2016.
