San Francisco 49ers, America, and Apparently: People Are Mad About Colin Kapernick Being Named GQ's "Citizen of the Year" L. @balleralert People Are Mad About Colin Kapernick Being Named GQ’s “Citizen of the Year” – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Just hours after GQ announced that ColinKaepernick would be recognized as one the magazine’s “Men of the Year,” specifically coined this year’s “Citizen of the Year,” the Twitterverse nearly drowned in whitetears. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Many took to the social media platform to express their disapproval with GQ’s decision to feature the former 49ers quarterback. Others even called for a boycott of the magazine, using the hashtag BoycottGQ. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I guess it’s time to BoycottGQ since @GQMagazine named Colin Kaepernick “Citizen of the Year.” A divisive, anti-American, Racist jackass that single-handedly destroyed the @NFL isn’t a citizen, he’s a traitor,” Twitter user Hans Auf wrote. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Last year, Kaepernick led the league in a protest against police brutality and racial injustices by kneeling during the national anthem. His movement sparked a widespread discussion about the former quarterback’s purpose, his subsequent extended unemployment and the league’s handling of the protests. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “ BoycottGQ magazine…how dumb can you get GQ? Colin is a whiny rich spoiled crybaby and hates America. DO YOU hate America too GQ? Apparently,” Cup of Covfefe & Me wrote. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Seems GQ magazine has awarded @Kaepernick7 “Man of the Year” award. In doing so, they agree that it is perfectly fine to insult our nation’s flag, national anthem and our nation’s heroes,” Adorable Deplorable tweeted. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, others were pleased with GQ’s decision. In fact, many praised the magazine for recognizing such a courageous man, who risked his career to make a difference in the world.
