Beyonce Presents Legacy Award to Colin Kaepernick, Thanks Him for His Sacrifice

Beyonce Presents Legacy Award to Colin Kaepernick, Thanks Him for His Sacrifice

Beyoncé made a surprise appearance, presenting the athlete with the award and commenting: "Colin took action with no fear of effect or repercussion". In October, he filed a grievance against the NFL which alleges that he has not signed with a team due to collusion by the league's owners.

During his acceptance speech, Kaepernick vowed to continue to support social justice causes even if he is no longer in the NFL.

Former NFL player Colin Kaepernick has been given a top sports award for using his position to promote change. Because if it were not for my love of the people, I would not have protested.

Klopp has insisted he will field his strongest possible team this evening despite facing Everton in the Premier League on Sunday. Within 3 minutes of the restart it was 4-0 as Mane got the goal he had been threatening in the first half.

Kaepernick also recently was honored by the ACLU of Southern California with the Eason Monroe Courageous Advocate Award and was named GQ magazine's "Citizen of the Year" for his activism, which included pledging $1 million to "organizations working in oppressed communities".

"Colin took action with no fear of outcome or repercussion, only hope to change the world for the better".

The "Flawless" hitmaker concluded: "We're still waiting for the world to catch up.His message is exclusively focused on social injustice for historically disenfranchised people". Kaepernick refused to stand during the "Star-Spangled Banner" as a way to protest the unequal treatment of black Americans and other people of color in the United States, especially in regards to police brutality. Kaepernick has since been a free agent, beginning earlier this year.

This isn't Lahren's first time slamming either Beyonce or Kaepernick; she's criticized the Lemonade singer over everything from her politics to her performances, and she slammed Kaepernick just last month.
