It cost him his job. Though Colin Kaepernick continues his silent protest, he agreed to collaborate with GQ on a special project for our December Men of the Year issue in an effort to, as the piece explains, "reclaim the narrative of his protest."

Britt McHenry is taking a stand against GQ naming Colin Kaepernick its "Citizen of the Year" for taking a knee.

The former ESPN reporter bashed GQ and Kaepenerick on Twitter Monday shortly after the magazine announced it would be honoring the polarizing quarterback.

"Wear socks depicting police officers as pigs; wear Fidel Castro as a fashion statement IN MIAMI; sue NFL for collusion when gf compares owners to slave owners...

Win Citizen of the Year.

Serve in the US military...nothing. What a joke, GQ. #Kaepernick," McHenry wrote.

McHenry has frequently criticized Kaepernick for initiating the national anthem protest movement.

McHenry was one of 100 ESPN employees let go by the Network in late April. The recognizable spors reporter later said she believed her conservative views had something to do with her firing.

  Kaepernick's lawyer expects him to be signed in 'next 10 days' Colin Kaepernick's lawyer, Mark Geragos, believes the free-agent quarterback won't be looking for work much longer. "I think within the next 10 days somebody will sign him," Geragos said in a Tuesday appearance on "The Adam Carolla"I think within the next 10 days somebody will sign him," Geragos said in a Tuesday appearance on "The Adam Carolla Show," according to Scott Gleeson of USA TODAY Sports. "I think somebody's going to sign him. I think the NFL has to come to their senses, and realize every day that goes by just proves the collusion case even more.

Breitbart: Ex-ESPN Reporter Britt McHenry Slams GQ for Picking Colin Kaepernick as ‘Citizen of the Year’. However, the choice did not sit well with former ESPN host Britt McHenry who had a much better candidate in mind for the honor than Kaepernick . What a joke , GQ . # Kaepernick .

Since being let go by ESPN, McHenry has frequently appeared as a guest on Fox News.

McHenry has also taken to Twitter to voice her conservative views. In recent weeks McHenry has praised Donald Trump, insinuated Hillary Clinton "rigged" the Democratic National Convention and criticized Spurs coach Gregg Popovich for discussing politics in his interviews.

GQ said they decided to honor Kaepernick due to his activism both on-and-off the field.

"Colin Kaepernick's determined stand puts him in rare company in sports history: Muhammad Ali, Jackie Robinson - athletes who risked everything to make a difference," the editors of GQ wrote.

McHenry later said she does, in fact, understand the underlying reason behind the protests, but believes players such as Malcolm Jenkins and Kenny Stills were more worthy choices.

"For those who think I don't get the reason for protest you're wrong," McHenry wrote. "Eagles Malcolm Jenkins met with lawmakers to help community. Dolphins Kenny Stills met with Miami police. More examples of Citizen of the Year."

McHenry also said JJ Watt would have been a better choice for Citizen of the Year Texans defensive end raised more than $37 million for Hurricane Harvey relief.

"JJ Watt raised $37 million for Hurricane Harvey victims. 37 MILLION! But Kaepernick refused to stand for our national anthem (a year ago) and is Citizen of the Year. Right...," McHenry wrote.

While McHenry praised Jenkins, Stills and Watt for their contributions off the field, she failed to acknowledge Kaepernick's.

Since sitting, and later kneeling, during the national anthem to bring awareness to police brutality and racism, the former 49ers quarterback has participated in volunteer work across the country. Kaepernick has also donated $1 million plus all the proceeds of his jersey sales from the 2016 season to "organizations working in oppressed communities" over the past year.

In addition, Kaepernick founded "Know Your Rights Camp," a youth campaign which strives to raise awareness regarding higher education, self-empowerment and how to properly interact with law enforcement.

The NFL Is Making Colin Kaepernick’s Collusion Case for Him .
On October 15, Colin Kaepernick filed a grievance against the National Football League. On October 15, Colin Kaepernick filed a grievance against the National Football League. It alleged that team owners had colluded to keep him out of uniform, not because of his athletic performance, but because of his decision to protest acts of police brutality and racial injustice by kneeling during the national anthem. The move gave official procedure to a politically infused conflict that had been contested, to that point, through the media, and that had long since taken its place in the broader culture war.
