Kaepernick’s Birth Mother Speaks Out – Slams Him for Disrespecting His Country
San Francisco 49er’s quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the playing of the national anthem at a preseason game on Friday.
Kaepernick sat by the water and Gatorade coolers instead.
He said it was in protest of what he deems are wrongdoings against African Americans and minorities in the United States.
Colin’s birth mother was not impressed with his action.
Heidi Russo gave up Colin for adoption at birth.
She tweeted this out on Saturday.
