Kaepernick’s Girlfriend Denies Report QB Will Stand For Anthem If Signed
It was reported earlier this year that Colin Kaepernick stated he would indeed stop kneeling during the National Anthem so he could continue his football career. Despite that, NFL teams have still stayed away and he’s remained unsigned through the first five weeks of the season.
On Sunday, more reports came out that Kaepernick would indeed not kneel, at least according to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora.

Kaepernick’s girlfriend, however, took to Twitter and refuted those reports with one post:
The reports that Colin will stand for the anthem are completely false! He has never discussed this with anyone. pic.twitter.com/tWusUBJMeF

Radio personality Charlamagne Tha God then blasted La Canfora for not actually having an interview with Kaepernick. Rather, he claims La Canfora just happened to bump into Kap at a hotel lobby.
Everybody simmer down. We live in a strange world. 1) Colin never spoke to CBS, 2)This reporter Jason Lancafora didn’t do an interview with Colin he randomly bumped into him in a hotel lobby, 3) Jason Lancafora said in these tweets he didn’t even have a convo with Kaep about kneeling so how in the hell is everybody running with a story about Kaep not kneeling and Kaep never said that??? FAKE NEWS. “Believe only half of what you see and nothing that you hear especially if it’s on the internet.” -Uncle Charla Allan Poe (swipe for his tweets)
