Former ESPN reporter Britt McHenry was included in the mass layoffs that rocked the ‘Worldwide Leader in Sports’ back in April. McHenry has since insinuated her conservative political beliefs may have played a part in that decision.

Whatever the case, she is now speaking out more than ever and her latest target is Colin Kaepernick.

On July 4th, the former San Fransico 49ers QB took to Twitter to post a clip of his recent trip to Ghana to learn more about his heritage.  He also left a comment for people celebrating Independence Day.

McHenry was having none of it and she took to Twitter to put him on blast for his comments.

She then posted a link to her blog:

“I’ll tell you how, Colin. Americans can celebrate the official birth of this nation because despite all its flaws, for one day, there’s a reminder of unity no matter how many efforts you make to dismantle it.”

“My admiration will always go towards the men and women who have walked away from their loved ones, through fields of IEDs, and into the dangerous unknown,” McHenry said. “It will never go to the athlete who takes a knee after losing his starting job.”
