San Fransisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick became a household name across America for his controversial national anthem protests to bring attention to the “oppression” that exists in the U.S., but now he’s drawing quite a bit of backlash for another decision — he made the choice not to vote.
And ESPN anchor Stephen A. Smith is really not happy about it.
“As far as I’m concerned, Colin Kaepernick is absolutely irrelevant,” Smith charged Wednesday. “I don’t want to see him again. I don’t want to hear from him again. I don’t wanna hear a damn word about anything he has to say about our nation — the issues that we have, racial injustices, needing change, et cetera, et cetera. He comes across as a flaming hypocrite.”
