On Monday, GQ magazine released its special issue naming former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick “Citizen of the Year.” The controversial sports figure, and the magazine, received a lot of backlash, including a string of tweets from former ESPN reporter Britt McHenry.

On Monday morning, McHenry took shots at Kaepernick on Twitter, arguing that not only is he not worthy of the new title, but there were far more respectful members of the NFL worth shining a light on. McHenry first commented on Kaepernick’s previous wardrobe choice that painted police in a negative light.

“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.”

Later, she highlighted JJ Watt, who raised money for the victims of Hurricane Harvey earlier this year, as someone who may be worthy of being recognized as Citizen of the Year.

“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…”

Kaepernick has said his decision to kneel during the national anthem began as a protest of police brutality in the black communities of America. Since then, it has ballooned into an issue about free speech, respect for the flag and respect for veterans.

“For those who think I don’t get the reason for protest you’re wrong. Eagles Malcolm jenkins met with lawmakers to help community. Dolphins Kenny Stills met with Miami police. More examples of Citizen of the Year.”

Kaepernick has continued his protest, even after not being accepted by any NFL team this season. As previously reported, in addition to the GQ cover, he’s reportedly landed a $1 million book deal.

If you 'read' Go Queer magazine, you won't comprehend the arguments against Kaepernick.

It's not about honoring deserving citizens. It's about selling magazines. And controversy sells more magazines than does honor.

ZING!!

I'm just surprised Ha-Hah-Hahvey Weinstein didn't win his bogus award.

Those who most loudly denounce Fake News are typically those most aggressively disseminating it.
