It was reported earlier this year that Colin Kaepernick stated he would indeed stop kneeling during the National Anthem so he could continue his football career, but still NFL teams stayed away and has remained that way through 4 weeks into the season.
ON Sunday, more reports came out that Kaepernick would indeed not kneel to make it clear, at least accoridng to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora.

Kaepernick’s girlfriend, however, took to Twitter and refuted those reports with one post:
The reports that Colin will stand for the anthem are completely false! He has never discussed this with anyone. pic.twitter.com/tWusUBJMeF

Radio personality Charlamagne Tha God then blasted La Canfora for not actually having an interview with Kaepernick, but just happened to bump into him at a hotel lobby.
Everybody simmer down. We live in a strange world. 1) Colin never spoke to CBS, 2)This reporter Jason Lancafora didn’t do an interview with Colin he randomly bumped into him in a hotel lobby, 3) Jason Lancafora said in these tweets he didn’t even have a convo with Kaep about kneeling so how in the hell is everybody running with a story about Kaep not kneeling and Kaep never said that??? FAKE NEWS. “Believe only half of what you see and nothing that you hear especially if it’s on the internet.” -Uncle Charla Allan Poe (swipe for his tweets)
