Quarterback Colin Kaepernick made his first start on Sunday in nearly a year, against the Bills. Outside the team’s stadium, T-shirts for sale allowed fans to make a strong (and alarming) statement about the anthem protest.
Via Robert Klemko of TheMMQB.com, one of the T-shirts has an image of Kaepernick with a rifle sight on him. The text says “Wanted” above the photo and “Notorious Disgrace to America” below it.
Elsewhere outside the stadium, one group of fans were hitting a dummy wearing a Kaepernick jersey and an afro wig. Per Klemko, one fan yelled, “Tackle the Muslim.”
None of this behavior traces to the Bills organization, and it won’t be a surprise if similar incidents occur at other 49ers road games, if Kaepernick continues to start.
