Dez Bryant is trending over comments he made about former NFL player Colin Kaepernick.
The former NFL wide receiver Dez Bryant was talking with Brandon Marshall and Chad Ochocino about Colin Kaepernick, and Dez unleashed a mini rant over Colin Kaepernick’s lack of a call to action over his anthem protests. Dez explained that he respects the hell out of Kaepernick, and there’s no lost love there, but he was disappointed that Colin never really followed thru. Bryant says Colin Kaepernick “had the biggest opportunity in the world to create jobs, build jobs, give jobs to people” and doesn’t believe Colin has done that.
“I respect Colin Kaepernick, but there’s one thing I don’t respect and I said it, when I get the opportunity and to get on the stage and say it I would say it, and I love them to death so it ain’t no hate or nothing like that, but brother, you had the biggest opportunity in the world to create jobs, build jobs, give jobs to people, the people you was talking about, the people that you so-called standing up for, the people who stood beside you, the people who lost their jobs because of you, where you at? I ain’t heard from you.
“I reached out to you. Where you at?” Bryant continued. “Real, always, and going to stay that way.

Dez Bryant can miss me with all that crap about Kaepernick. When it counted the most and Kaepernick needed allies, Dez was nowhere and I mean nowhere to be found. Most players like him were either silent or did nothing. Bryant been looking for job handouts like Halloween Candy. pic.twitter.com/nDhShElLXP

I remember Dez Bryant refusing to kneel but he’s calling out Kaepernick? If there’s valid criticism of Colin Kaepernick it won’t be coming from Dez Bryant. https://t.co/O3QS3o5FZR

Dez Bryant is so misinformed that he doesn't even know that Kaepernick has done these things
Meanwhile, Dez refused to simply kneel for the flag to take a stand and use to slap his mom around. Go on somewhere. https://t.co/ONJWacfuTd
