Sports / Stars who refuse to support Colin Kaepernick

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick unleashed a firestorm when he decided to protest during the national anthem. By taking a knee while "The Star-Spangled Banner" is played before each game, Kaepernick is attempting to use his public platform to raise awareness about police brutality and what he feels is a flawed and racist justice system. Not surprisingly, many athletes have spoken out either against or in solidarity with Kaepernick, but the controversy over his protest has spread beyond the field. Social media has become the stage for some of the most contentious debates, and many famous voices have joined the fray. Even President Barack Obama publicly supported Kaepernick "exercising his constitutional right to make a statement." As with Kaepernick's teammates and other NFL players, battle lines are being drawn among the celeb set as well. Nicki Swift previously reported on stars who support Kaepernick, but let's also take a look at the famous folks who have spoken out against the protest.
