Britt McHenry rips GQ for naming Colin Kaepernick ‘Citizen of the Year’

Britt McHenry ESPN

Colin Kaepernick was named “Citizen of the Year” by GQ magazine on Monday, and there are sure to be plenty of people who disagree with the free agent quarterback being given the honor. This won’t come as a surprise, but Britt McHenry has already outed herself as one of them.

In a series of tweets, McHenry called it a “joke” that GQ chose Kaepernick over U.S. military veterans or other athletes like J.J. Watt, who has raised more than $35 million for hurricane relief in Texas.

Kaepernick was not quoted in the feature story for GQ, though he did tweet his appreciation for being named “Citizen of the Year.”

Since she was laid off by ESPN in April, McHenry has tried to carve out a niche for herself as a prominent voice for conservative America. She has amassed over 450,000 Twitter followers, so some might say it has been working.

In addition to calling out Kaepernick, McHenry has criticized Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors for choosing not to visit the White House. She also defended the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department after an NFL star accused officers of racism and police brutality.
