Britt McHenry Slams GQ For Dubbing Kaepernick 'Citizen of the Year'

Bryan Michalek | November 14, 2017

Former ESPN reporter Britt McHenry took issue with GQ's decision to name Colin Kaepernick its "Citizen of the Year" for his "Take a Knee" protest. 

McHenry, who was let go from ESPN as part of their 100-employee layoff last April, has claimed her conservative views had something to do with her firing. As news spread of Kaepernick's new GQ title, McHenry took to Twitter lambasting both the magazine and the former 49ers quarterback.

McHenry noted that not single member of the U.S. military received an award.

This has not been the first time that McHenry has taken issue with Kaepernick. She previously criticized him for his remarks about Independence Day on Twitter, and also wrote a lengthy piece on him on her personal website

According to New York Daily News, McHenry said she didn't have a problem with protesting, but noted that other players have done more than simply kneel.

McHenry also added that JJ Watt would have been a better choice than Kaepernick, noting that the Texans defensive end had raised a whopping $37 million for Hurricane Harvey relief.
