NFL finds Colin Kaepernick did not use racial slur, reduces fine
Thursday October 16th, 2014

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick recently had his $11,025 fine cut in half after the league found that there was no evidence that he used a racial slur during a game.

Some people have pointed out that if there was no evidence, that the fine should have been rescinded altogether, and it seems Kaepernick agrees as he went on a retweet rampage, posting outraged messages directed at the NFL for its multiple fines of Kaepernick this season.

In addition to the 70 retweets, Kaepernick let his feelings be known through an Instagram post after the ruling came down.


The face you make when the NFL says you didn't use a racial slur and still fines you $5500? *shrugs* back to my grind! #IDontGetTired #WhoDoYouLove #Se7enPounds

Kaepernick's reaction if the NFL fines him for the retweets will be one for the record books.
