Britt McHenry Attacks GQ for Honoring Anthem-Hating Kaepernick with “Citizen of the Year”

After naming former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick its “Citizen of the Year,” the GQ magazine has received a lot of negative criticism from the American people, including one former ESPN host.

Britt McHenry, who was fired from ESPN April due to her conservative views, wrote on Twitter to attack GQ.

On her Twitter account, McHenry explained why Kaepernick doesn’t deserve the honor.

“Wear socks depicting police officers as pigs; wear Fidel Castro as a fashion statement IN MIAMI; sue NFL for collusion when gf compares owners to slave owners … Win Citizen of the Year,” she wrote on Twitter. “Serve in the US military … nothing. What a joke, GQ.”

She also said that GQ could’ve found better players to honor, whose behavior is far more respectful than the person who has used every opportunity to crush on American values.

McHenry pointed out that Houston Texans player J.J. Watt would be a better choice for that honor, seeing how he worked hard to help the Hurricane Harvey victims.

“JJ Watt raised $37 million for Hurricane Harvey victims,” she stated. “37 MILLION! But Kaepernick refused to stand for our national anthem (a year ago) and is Citizen of the Year. Right…”

“I see that magazine cover and I think if we want to go with a football player, Houston Texans’ JJ Watt raised $37 million for Hurricane Harvey relief. Why is he not the citizen of the year?” she said in an interview with Fox News‘ Neil Cavuto Monday night.

She also said that id GQ was so set to honor a player who specifically did something to improve racial injustice in America, there were many others more deserving of that title than Kaepernick.

In particular, she believes Philadelphia Eagles star Malcolm Jenkins, who had a meeting with lawmakers to help his community, is a better candidate for that title, or Miami Dolphins star Kenny Stills who had meetings with local law enforcement to find a way to solve the problem together.

“More examples of Citizen of the Year,” she added.

GQ said Kaepernick got this honor because of his activism on the field and off, saying he is a “powerful symbol of activism and resistance.”

“There’s a huge disconnect with reality and the NFL right now and they need to figure it out,” McHenry stated.

She is right, Kaepernick behavior only divided this country, there are a lot of other ways he could’ve chosen to raise awareness on racial injustice than choosing to disrespect American valued and offend the patriots of this country.

    I wish I were a long time subscriber to GQ – so I could have the satisfaction of writing to them cancelling my subscription for this dumb act.

    It’s a joke from GQ to honor a disrespectful NFL player as ” Citizen of the Year “. JJ Watt is more deserving with the honor than communist Kaepernick. The same thing when Obama the muslim received the Novel prize. Only in America.
