Michael Vick Gives Kaepernick Advice, Social Media Loses Its Mind
By Angelina Newsom | Ops Lens
“He was simply stating that Kaepernick would have gotten a similar opportunity if his playing hadn’t become subpar in the past couple seasons.”
Michael Vick had some advice for perhaps the most hated NFL player in recent history, Colin Kaepernick—who remains unemployed. The former quarterback, and convicted felon, spoke with sports commentator Jason Whitlock and blamed Kaepernick’s current situation on poor performance, saying…
“It has nothing to do with him being blackballed. The gesture that he made last year when he took the stand to do what he did, listen, we all appreciated it, we respected it, and it was a good thing. I really think the stand that he took has nothing to do with him not having a job playing in the National Football League right now.”
Vick continued to say that Colin Kaepernick could benefit from getting a haircut and going “clean-cut” in an effort to present a better image. Vick acknowledged he wasn’t going to be politically correct with his statements. The advice sounded the same as any other young person would receive facing unemployment and controversy. Of course, this interview sent social media into a frenzy.
