#VeteransForKaepernick Goes Viral on Social Media
That sound you hear is a bunch of people being silenced all at once. It seems as if everybody was upset about Colin Kaepernick…EXCEPT ACTUAL VETERANS!
If you took a stroll on social media in the past few days, you’ve definitely seen a bunch of overly upset people trashing San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and his decision to stay seated while the National Anthem was playing—as well as his comments that followed.
Those people got a big punch to the gut after #VeteransForKaepernick went viral on social media and thousands of Vets took to Instagram, Twitter, & Facebook to give Kaepernick their support.
