Kaepernick Fined by NFL After Supporting Breast Cancer


With October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, it’s not surprising to see people everywhere rocking more pink than usual in their wardrobe and showing their support for the cause. With charity walks and various fundraisers bringing people together in remembrance for those who battled the disease and uplifting those still fighting, it’s amazing to see such solidarity.

However one athlete in particular wasn’t praised for his actions, instead it was just the opposite as the sports world witnessed Colin Kaepernick fined by NFL after supporting Breast Cancer Awareness earlier this week.

During a press conference, the 49ers quarterback, in support of the cause, entered the room wearing pink Beats by Dre headphones— now this might have been okay if they were Bose headphones, a company with whom the NFL just signed a deal with, Kaepernick on the other hand has an endorsement deal with Beats by Dre


So what did he have to say about the whole incident? He made his feelings clear on both Instagram and Twitter after receiving the fine:

So did Beats by Dre pick up the fine? According to the Associated Press Kaepernick simply responded saying, “We’ll let that be unanswered.”

Many argue that they should have just let Kaepernick slide and that the NFL went too far with hitting him with a fine, others say that it’s just business— Kaepernick on the other hand, is holding his family at the number one spot and isn’t stressing the situation in the least.
