Dez Bryant Calls Out Colin Kaepernick Over National Anthem Kneeling

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.

“He brought the awareness and that’s why I respect him…”

Dez may have had the best intentions when he said this, but you know how everyone is going to react.

Twitter was not going to lay down on this one…
