Reporter Mistakenly Says Colin Kaepernick Wouldn't Kneel In Protest--And Backlash Was Fierce

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

While giving a report to CBS's NFL Today sports reporter Jason La Canfora said Colin Kaepernick would stand for the National Anthem if picked up to play for a team. 

 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. 

There was just one problem, Kaepernick never said that and his girlfriend,  Nessa Diab , immediately took to Twitter to shut it down.
