Colin Kaepernick’s Girlfriend Nessa Diab Slams NFL For Listing Him As Retired: You Cowards Blackballed Him!
Nessa Diab, radio personality and girlfriend to former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, never has a problem calling out the NFL. And she had a few things to say after coming across a change on Colin Kaepernick’s profile on the league’s website.
She took to her Instagram stories and shared a screenshot of his page with an arrow that pointed to the word “Retired.”
“The@nfl back at it with their lies and trying to erase @kaepernick7. I attached the link so you can see it for yourself.”
She also had a message on Twitter:
“The @NFL @nflcommish @NFLPA lying on their NFL website claiming @Kaepernick7 “retired.” Colin did NOT retire. You cowards blackballed him bc he peacefully protested against police brutality. He’s a Superbowl QB & should be playing bc his stats show that.”
She then pointed out that the league removed the “retired” status shortly after, and thanked supporters for getting the NFL’s attention. She also urged them to keep pressuring the NFL to hire him again.
She ended on Instagram and wrote,
“Oh and they need to go ahead and restore his player profile picture like all the other UFA profiles.”
Colin Kaepernick hasn’t hit the NFL field since he started protesting against police brutality in 2016. His protest included him kneeling during the national anthem to bring attention to his platform. He has yet to be signed to a team nearly four years later, causing many to claim he was blackballed from the league. He did have a tryout with NFL teams last year, but none of the teams decided to move forward with him.
