Colin Kaepernick’s Mom Slams His Stance On The National Anthem

Colin Kaepernick’s birth mother is causing a stir on Twitter after she ignorantly tweeted to her estranged son about his “National Anthem” comments.

Heidi Russo who gave up Colin when he was six weeks old, took to Twitter this week to blast him for stating that he wouldn’t stand during the anthem.

“There’s ways to make change w/o disrespecting & bringing shame to the very country & family who afforded you so many blessings,” wrote Heidi. “The path less traveled doesn’t need to be one of destruction.”

What do YOU think about this wayward white woman’s comments???


More on the flip.

According to Heidi, a mother of three, she didn’t give up Colin because he’s black.
