The quarterback for the 49ers football team, Colin Kaepernick, recently put a post on social media that has him under fire. He made fun of the people in Houston. Using his everyday phrase 7storms coming and pictures of the destruction in Houston, Kaepernick is warning the NFL that he is going to dominate this season like the storms are dominating Houston.
People everywhere began to comment on this issue. All of these comments summed up to say it’s not right to make fun of people who have nothing, especially when the person making fun has everything.
After realizing the reactions of the public, Kaepernick released another post. This time, he apologized for his first post, and he said he is praying for all of the people in Houston. He also said that he did not really know how bad the situation is in Houston until he heard about it through firsthand information.
Kaepernick hopes this will go away and everything will go back to normal. He is also committed to using social media less and less because it brings trouble no matter what.
With the football season just weeks away, Kaepernick does not want to get on the field with this on his mind. He also hopes the NFL will not take any action against him. He is nervous because of the way certain football players have been treated by the league in the last couple of weeks. Kaepernick continues to say sorry, and he will try to find ways to make it up to the people of Houston.
