Colin Kaepernick has been out of the National Football League since the end of the 2016 season, but the very mention of his name today still garners a ton of dislike and hate from millions of people across the country.
Things are still so crazy that TMZ said the Kaepernick TV production is taking security measures in the wake of a threat at the hands of anti-BLM protesters.
“Executives on the project sent an email to the staff with measures to protect the cast and crew. We will not disclose the measures, but the honchos are clearly taking it seriously.
Production sources tell TMZ Sports, they were told the anti-BLM group was planning a protest last Friday at the location shoot. That protest did not materialize, but it caused worry among cast and crew.
The production was notified last week in a memo “anti-BLM sentiments may protest against the production.”
“Two production sources tell TMZ Sports there was also an ominous phone call made last week to the production office.
The production sources tell us the anti-BLM group that made the threat was the Proud Boys.”
Actor Jaden Michael is starring as the former 49ers QB. The actual former quarterback was not n set last week.
The production — “Colin in Black and White” — chronicles Kaepernick’s high school years and the racism he confronted.
