Not wanting to be compared to Colin Kaepernick, Antonio Brown questioned the former NFL quarterback’s sincerity in helping people downtown.
Brown spoke to June Archer about 50 Cent’s “Thisis50” network. Archer mentioned Brown’s free hand,
“We saw what happened to Colin Kaerpernick…” he said when the wide receiver cut him off.
“Colin Kaepernick not AB. Colin Kaepernick not even out of the hood. He’s not even from Liberty City. So I don’t even want to give his name,” Brown said. “AB is a valuable football player. AB had stats last year, touchdowns.
Brown disputed the idea that Kaepernick, who has been out of the NFL since 2016 after kneeling during the national anthem, was abused.
“He was treated well,” Brown said. “He has (a) Netflix documentary. Don’t let it twist See, that’s the wrong thing about the world. We’re like, ‘Oh, Kaepernick is being treated so badly because they won’t let him play football.’ Yeah, they didn’t let him play soccer, they gave him ads. They gave him money. I’m not trying to tell you what ‘they’ did, I’m telling you the reality of what happened.”
Brown said he’s from the Liberty City area of Miami and didn’t think Kaepernick really showed his face downtown.
“Kaepernick, I feel like he’s a great guy. He stood for a great cause, but he doesn’t understand it. He’s not from Liberty City. He’s not even built that way. Guys like me they ban you They don’t even give you contracts. They don’t even want to negotiate with you. I’m not really an icon now. They don’t see that they don’t write books about me,” Brown said.
“You tell me yo Colin Kaepernick what has he done? What is he up to right now? Do you see him? I’m on the street every day now – people see me. You get excited. You know why? Because I make them feel good. you can relate. You know what’s really going on. But they know I still put on a smile and get over it.
“Colin Kaepernick caused a commotion and then went into the corner in the cut. I face people every day.”
Kaepernick has regularly spoken about wanting to return to the NFL, most recently throwing at the University of Michigan spring game in April.
In a separate appearance this week on Cigar Talk, Brown slammed Kaepernick for “cutting a deal” with the NFL in his 2019 collusion lawsuit agreement and hinted that the quarterback actually doesn’t want to play football.
“They gave him money and they gave him the publicity,” Brown said of Kaepernick. “They gave him the documentary.”
“We don’t feel sorry for you. You made a deal! fuck off here on f-king nike man. Get the fk out of here. He doesn’t want to play. He was trash. Kaepernick did all of that. He took the money and did the commercials. He’s not outside. Where is he? I’ve never seen him outside.
“He already took the money. All that [the practice videos Kaepernick posts] is cap. We don’t respect that, brother. You took the money, the commercials. We don’t see him outside. We don’t see him in the hood. He does nothing. We cool down, but we don’t understand. He doesn’t even come out of the hood. He wasn’t even in the trenches. We like Kaepernick, but we’re not really into that.”
