Colin Kaepernick Named GQ’s Citizen Of The Year & Twitter Has A LOT Of Feelings About It!

Colin Kaepernick lands the cover of 'GQ'!

GQ launched their 2017 Men of the Year issue on Monday, but this year’s is slightly different!

The glossy features Colin Kaepernick as one of their four cover stars, dubbing him Citizen of the Year! And the cover story “Colin Kaepernick Will Not Be Silenced” is actually a representation of the controversial athlete with quotes from just ten of his friends and confidants.

Colin purposefully decided to be silent in the article, as it’s explained:

“As his public identity has begun to shift from football star to embattled activist, he has grown wise to the power of his silence.”

In case you missed it, the 30-year-old filed a grievance against the NFL over claims they colluded to keep him from playing this season after kneeling during the National Anthem last year.

Unfortunately for the former 49ers star, his cover and new title have received a lot of mixed reactions on Twitter! Ch-ch-check them out (below) along with his cover and spread:

And as for those reactions??

What do U think of Colin’s feature??
