Speaking on an episode of ThisIs50, former NFL star wide receiver Antonio Brown said cop-hating communist multi-millionaire Colin Kaepernick “has been treated good” in reward for his social justice protests, which included “taking a knee” during the playing of the national anthem before games.
Asked about the league’s purported blackballing of Kaepernick in response to his social justice activism, Brown pointed out the lucrative TV and book deals Kaepernick has received, while also dissing the ex-quarterback because he lacks street cred. “He’s not even from the ‘hood… so I don’t wanna even mention his name.”
When the interviewer suggested Kaepernick had been badly treated by the NFL, Brown interjected, “He’s been treated good. He got a Netflix documentary, now don’t get it twisted… They gave him commercials, they gave him money, you know what I’m sayin’?… I’m an icon, you don’t see them writin’ no books about me.”
He reiterated his point that Kaepernick is not from the ‘hood, adding that he hasn’t done anything lately to merit any attention from NFL teams.
The interviewer seemed thrown by Brown’s rejection of Kaepernick’s supposed victimhood status.
