Colin Kaepernick has had enough and is taking his latest battle to the courtroom.
The sports star has risen to global prominence after protesting the unjust killings of Black people in the US by kneeling for the National Anthem during NFL games.
Naturally, his actions attracted much attention – not all of which has been positive.
Indeed, he’s been relegated to free agent status; and with no teams publicly making a beeline to snap him up, his future on the field looks uncertain.
Believing the situation to be no coincident, he has filed suit.
Per TMZ, the lawsuit alleges the league’s owners “colluded to deprive Mr. Kaepernick of employment rights in retaliation for Mr. Kaepernick’s leadership and advocacy for equality and social justice.”
As for representation, Kaepernick is said to have hired celeb attorney Mark Geragos rather than going through the NFL Players Association. Geragos’ past clients include Michael Jackson and Chris Brown.
Ish is getting all sorts of real.
