Magazine names Colin Kaepernick 'Citizen of the Year'


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.
