Back when his national anthem protests were dominating headlines last summer, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick addressed reporters while wearing a Fidel Castro T-shirt, and that three-month-old decision earned him a heavy dose of boos Sunday at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium.
Below is the T-shirt. Above, in the video, are the boos that rained down on Kaepernick the first time he took the field against the Dolphins.
The T-shirt inspired renewed controversy this week when Kaepernick met with Miami reporters on a conference call ahead of the 49ers’ Sunday game and Miami Herald reporter Armando Salguero questioned the QB about his decision to support the longtime Cuban president, who, coincidentally, died Friday at age 90.
