Folks out here doing anything to undermine Colin Kaepernick’s #TakeaKnee Movement!

One CBS reporter went as far to insinuate that Kap told him in a recent interview that if he was rehired by the NFL, he would start standing for the National Anthem. #ComeOnSon!!!

On “The NFL Today,” CBS’ Jason La Canfora talked about his sit-down with the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback. During the show, anchor James Brown asked La Canfora, "And kneeling, [Kaepernick] said?"

"He's not planning on kneeling. He's going to donate all his jersey sales and he's planning on standing for the anthem if given the opportunity, J.B," La Canfora replied.

But here’s the deal: Kap never told him that!

His bae Nessa let everyone know the truth:

When folks realized La Canfora’s report was #FakeNews, CBS had to issue a retraction:

And La Canfora instantly backpedaled saying he needed to clarify his statements.

SO HOLE UP! If the reporter never spoke with Colin about this topic and had no clue where he actually stands on kneeling, why not just say that? And what report was he relaying this information from? 'Cause it sure wasn’t his own! Nah dude!

Later, Colin sent out his own subliminal shady Tweet addressing the situation:

Tell ‘em Kap!

Meanwhile, Colin has yet to be signed while Miami Dolphins’ Jay Cutler and other QBs in the League are out there losing games and still making millions. But at least they stand for the Anthem, right? Hmmmmm....
