NFL star Antonio Brown has shredded embattled former quarterback Colin Kaepernick, warning that no one in the league “feels sorry” for him.
Brown said during a recent interview on the Cigar Talk podcast that people don’t care about Kaepernick’s problems because he cashed in on sponsorship deals and commercials.
“But they gave him the money and they gave him a commercial, they gave him the documentary,” Brown said.
“He took a deal. We don’t feel sorry for you.
“You took the deal. F*ck outta here.
“Oh, Kaepernick. Man, you on f*cking Nike, man. F*ck outta here.
“Kaepernick did all that and took the money and then got the commercial.
“We don’t see Kaepernick outside. Where he at?
“I ain’t never seen him outside. He already took the money, all that’s Kap.
“We ain’t respecting that, bro. You took the money, the commercials.
“We don’t see you outside. We don’t see him in the hood. He don’t do nothing.
“He not even from the hood, you don’t even been in the trenches.
“We like Kaepernick and all, but we ain’t really on that.
“As black people we need to get that clear because when he have moments, ain’t nobody giving us no nothing.
“He took the handout, so he got to take the mayor out and take responsibility for that.
“He don’t wanna play, man.
“He was trash, everything.”
Brown said in an earlier interview:
“He’s been treated good.
“He got a Netflix documentary — don’t get it twisted — see that’s the wrong thing about the world, we think, ‘Oh Kaepernick treated so bad because they don’t let him play football.’
“Yeah, they didn’t let him play football, they gave him commercials, they gave him money.
“Kaepernick, he’s a great guy, he stood for a great cause but he don’t understand.
“He’s not from Liberty City, he ain’t even built like that.
“Dudes like me, they ban you.
“They don’t even give you contracts, they don’t even want to deal with you.
“I’m not really an icon right now.
“You don’t see them writing no books about me,” he said.
