When Kanye West tried to fix meet up for Colin Kaepernick & Donald Trump


Colin Kaepernick has remained a largely controversial figure in the NFL. Ever since the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback took a knee, he has divided opinion among NFL fans. He was protesting against issues of racial inequality and police brutality in the USA. However, his protest during the national anthem caused great controversy.
