T-Shirts with Colin Kaepernick in Rifle Crosshairs Sell Out at Bills Game
The anti-Colin Kaepernick movement got pretty nasty at Sunday’s game, as National Anthem-loving football enthusiasts eager to make a buck sold T-shirts picturing the San Francisco 49er quarterback in the center of a rifle scope.
First Amendment rights aside, the Kaepernick haters keep hating and never has it been more apparent than at Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills.
It was Kaepernick’s first start in nearly a year (a reason for him to celebrate), but outside Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park, New York, T-shirts with an alarming statement about Kaepernick’s protest were being sold.
Kaepernick stopped standing for the anthem during a preseason game against the Green Bay Packers and explained to reporters at the time that he was sending a message that is bigger than football.
“To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way,” Kaepernick told NFL Media. “There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”
