Colin Kaepernick ruined the sports world forever with the anti-American anthem protests.
Since then, athletes have been pressured into participating in progressive politics.
But an NFL player just called out one massive lie about Colin Kaepernick.
Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been treated like a martyr by the left.
His disrespect toward the national anthem was portrayed as a heroic moment by the leftists sports media.
It didn’t take long for the protest—and the cultural embrace of the protest—to spread like wildfire.
But not all NFL players are on board with the narrative surrounding Kaepernick.
Wide receiver Antonio Brown pushed back against the Kaepernick martyr narrative when the interview tried to compare Brown’s situation to Kaepernick’s.
Brown is currently a free agent after a jaw-dropping midseason exit from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Brown walked off the field because he claimed the coaches wanted him to play hurt.
Brown, referring to himself in the third person, said, “AB’s a valuable football player. AB had stats last year, touchdowns.”
The wide receiver was also instrumental in helping the Buccaneers win the Super Bowl the year prior.
Conversely, Kaepernick performed poorly the last time he saw the field in 2016; he finished 1-10 in his last 11 starts.
When the interviewer tried to discuss the supposed mistreatment of Kaepernick, Brown checked him again.
Brown explained, “He’s been treated good. He got a Netflix doc—don’t get it twisted. See, that’s the wrong thing about the world. We think, ‘Oh, Kaepernick [is] treated so bad because they don’t let him play football.’ Yeah, they didn’t let him play football. They gave him commercials. They gave him money.”
Brown’s point is correct.
Not only did Kaepernick get a Netflix deal, he also signed deals with Disney, Nike, Penguin Random House, and EA Sports Madden Football.
Kaepernick got “canceled” and rewarded with lucrative deals with some of the most powerful companies and brands in the world.
In Kaepernick’s atrocious Netflix series, he likened the NFL draft to a slave auction.
In his Netflix special, Colin Kaepernick suggests the NFL training camp is synonymous with literally buying slaves.

It’s head-scratching that Kaepernick would be trying to get into a league that he compares to slavery.
Kaepernick is out of the league for the same reason Brown is currently a free agent.
He’s a headache.
Kaepernick’s poor play—compounded with a five-year hiatus—is not worth the hassle of dealing with him as a media circus.
A few years ago when Brown was in his prime, he would be worth the drama.
But right now, he is not.

That’s the one thing Brown and Kaepernick do have in common.
