KRON—Conservative star C.J. Pearson posted a video to his Facebook page talking about the San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick controversy.
In the clip, Pearson calls Kaepernick a piece of garbage for not standing for the national anthem during a preseason game.
“You are a football player who seemingly thought your political opinions now mean something because you now believe you have enough courage and you are brave because you decided to sit down during the singing of the national anthem,” Pearson said.
The African-American teenager goes on to say there are Americans who put their lives on the line everyday just to protect our country. They do this while Kaepernick just runs a ball down a football field, according to Pearson.
“The sacrifice of the military to preserve the rights of people like you to say such insane thoughts and speak them out loud, I refuse not to condemn you for it,” he said.
C.J. Pearson’s video has had over 9 million views on Facebook.
