Susan Sarandon Joins Kaepernick Protest at NFL HQ: ‘I Stand with Colin’

Actress and activist Susan Sarandon joined alongside the estimated hundreds of Colin Kaepernick supporters participating in the “United We Stand” march outside of the NFL’s headquarters in New York City Wednesday.

The Thelma & Louise star shared a photo of the protesters with her 500,000-plus Twitter followers, captioning the tweet: “Rally in support of Colin Kaepernick in front of @NFL. Together we win. I stand with Colin. #ImWithKap.”

NAACP leaders and left-wing activist Linda Sarsour headlined the rally, which was meant to show support for the former San Fransisco 49ers star who’s yet to land a roster spot on an NFL team after causing controversy last season by kneeling for the National Anthem during pre-game ceremonies.

The out-of-work quarterback-turned social justice warrior has been a lightening rod for controversy. Amid his national anthem protests, Kaepernick was photographed wearing a Fidel Castro T-shirt and “pig cop” socks at official 49ers events.

Some signs from Wednesday’s rally included messages that said “Black Lives Matter Scoreboard. Kaepernick = HERO. NFL = ZERO” and, “He took a knee for me. I’ll take a stand for him.”

Sarandon, who supported Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ White House bid and eventually endorsed Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein, was also spotted walking through the rally.

    The NFL is a privately owned company….Just like any other….they decide who they want to hire…and who they want to fire. If they do not feel someone qualifies for a position…they are not hired. I hope they do not give into the pressure. The leftists believe all they have to do is protest because they do not like something or it makes them feel “uncomfortable”…therefore it needs to be changed. Not everyone has to agree with them!!! Stand up America. It is all about equality…I may not like Susan Sarandon…she makes me feel uncomfortable…Therefore, does she need to be there?

    What is wrong with those people? He is no Hero. My God he had all the money and was treated better than thousands. He didn’t live up to his job so he took a knee to deflect how lousy he is. Now all these idiots are making it about race and a poor little black boy. wow your idiots

    I stand with America, not just one person. All lives matter. Respect our flag and our country. Show respect. Many were injured and died for our freedoms. Respect them.

    Just another Socialist good for nothing Hollywood elitist looking for ink! BTY did Soros also fund these Radicals and ANTIFA groups. Those production style signs says someone sponsored this protest. George Soros, that turned his fellow Hebrews into Hitler’s Storm troopers looks like he is dedicated to finishing Obama’s Transformation of the USA into a Communist country.
