Kid Rock would like to send a message to Colin Kaepernick.
A negative message, we should say.
The San Francisco 49ers quarterback does not start for his professional football team, yet he has become one of the most famous players in the NFL this season.
Not because of anything Kaepernick has done on the field.
But because of something Colin Kaepernick has chosen to do off the field:
As you can see in the photo above, the signal caller now kneels during the playing of the national anthem.
He has made it very clear that he will continue to do this until there is "significant change" in the country when it comes to social justice.
The protest has received such global attention that even President Obama has commented on Kaepernick.
And now so has Kid Rock.
But while Obama and many others have been supportive of Kaepernick's message, the Detroit native is clearly anything but.
While singing the song "Born Free" in Boston this week, Kid Rock stopped about a minute of the way in and passed along three simple words to the professional athlete.
"F-ck Colin Kaepernick," the rocker said, to raucous cheers.
Is there an irony is singing a song titled "Born Free" and then cursing someone off for exercising said freedom in the name of an important cause?
Do Kid Rock and his supporters understand this irony?
