Britt McHenry: It's 'a joke' GQ honored Colin Kaepernick

By


Britt McHenry is taking a stand against GQ naming Colin Kaepernick its "Citizen of the Year" for taking a knee.

The former ESPN reporter bashed GQ and Kaepenerick on Twitter Monday shortly after the magazine announced it would be honoring the polarizing quarterback.

"Wear socks depicting police officers as pigs; wear Fidel Castro as a fashion statement IN MIAMI; sue NFL for collusion when gf compares owners to slave owners...

Win Citizen of the Year.

Serve in the US military...nothing. What a joke, GQ. #Kaepernick," McHenry wrote.

McHenry has frequently criticized Kaepernick for initiating the national anthem protest movement.

McHenry was one of 100 ESPN employees let go by the Network in late April. The recognizable spors reporter later said she believed her conservative views had something to do with her firing.

Since being let go by ESPN, McHenry has frequently appeared as a guest on Fox News.

McHenry has also taken to Twitter to voice her conservative views. In recent weeks McHenry has praised Donald Trump, insinuated Hillary Clinton "rigged" the Democratic National Convention and criticized Spurs coach Gregg Popovich for discussing politics in his interviews.

GQ said they decided to honor Kaepernick due to his activism both on-and-off the field.

"Colin Kaepernick's determined stand puts him in rare company in sports history: Muhammad Ali, Jackie Robinson - athletes who risked everything to make a difference," the editors of GQ wrote.

McHenry later said she does, in fact, understand the underlying reason behind the protests, but believes players such as Malcolm Jenkins and Kenny Stills were more worthy choices.

"For those who think I don't get the reason for protest you're wrong," McHenry wrote. "Eagles Malcolm Jenkins met with lawmakers to help community. Dolphins Kenny Stills met with Miami police. More examples of Citizen of the Year."

McHenry also said JJ Watt would have been a better choice for Citizen of the Year Texans defensive end raised more than $37 million for Hurricane Harvey relief.

"JJ Watt raised $37 million for Hurricane Harvey victims. 37 MILLION! But Kaepernick refused to stand for our national anthem (a year ago) and is Citizen of the Year. Right...," McHenry wrote.

While McHenry praised Jenkins, Stills and Watt for their contributions off the field, she failed to acknowledge Kaepernick's.

Since sitting, and later kneeling, during the national anthem to bring awareness to police brutality and racism, the former 49ers quarterback has participated in volunteer work across the country.

Kaepernick has also donated $1 million plus all the proceeds of his jersey sales from the 2016 season to "organizations working in oppressed communities" over the past year.

In addition, Kaepernick founded "Know Your Rights Camp," a youth campaign which strives to raise awareness regarding higher education, self-empowerment and how to properly interact with law enforcement.
