Colin Kaepernick hasn’t played since 2016 with the San Francisco 49ers. He helped start a wave of protests about social and racial injustice that season by first sitting which later led to kneeling during the national anthem at games.
Last weekend was the NFL’s Super Bowl 2019 weekend and ahead of the weekend, several celebrities showed solidarity with Kaepernick. Most celebrities had customized #IMWITHKAP jerseys on while posting tributes on social media to support the ex-49ers player. Among the stars that showed support are Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Common, Angela Davis, and Ava DuVernay.
