In a move that will undoubtedly be applauded by some, and scrutinized by many more, GQ Magazine has named Colin Kaepernick their "Citizen of the Year" for 2017.

The ex-San Francisco 49ers signal caller is joined by "Wonder Woman" actress Gal Gadot, Golden State Warriors superstar forward Kevin Durant and "The Late Show" host Stephen Colbert.

Gadot, who emerged as a feminist icon in 2017 for her portrayal of the courageous and powerful Wonder Woman in the summer blockbuster, was aptly named Wonder Woman of the Year.

Kaepernick took to social media on Monday morning to share the exciting cover, and while there is no shortage of haters on Twitter, the majority of responses to the magazine's choice of featuring him were overwhelmingly grateful.

The former NFL pro was on the cover of GQ four years ago as a rising star in the National Football League. And yet he has been locked out of the game he loves-blackballed-because of one simple gesture: He knelt during the playing of our national anthem.

Being dubbed this generation's iconic civil rights leader by legendary Olympian John Carlos, who is known for raising his fist in protest during the 1968 Olympics, Kaepernick makes a strong statement on the magazine's cover.

This is the 22nd year that GQ has honored its Men of the Year.
