Colin Kaepernick is receiving his fair share of criticism on social media. But instead of ignoring it, he's finding a way to turn the negative into a positive. Things aren’t going too well for the San Francisco 49ers, they have lost their last two games and quarterback Kaepernick has zero touchdowns, four interceptions and two fumbles in those losses. After immediate success in the National Football League and all the spoils that go with it, Kaepernick is now being introduced to the fickle side of stardom.
He could do no wrong in the eyes of the fans when he was winning. Heck, he even had a corn-maze created in his likeness. Now that he’s losing and doing it in ugly fashion, his most faithful followers have turned on him. Instead of ignoring the criticism, Kaepernick is “favoriting” every crummy comment sent his way on Twitter.
He’s even doing it while at work at 49ers headquarters. “It’s something I do for me,” Kaepernick told the assembled media in the 49ers’ locker room on Tuesday. ”It helps me.” Well, that’s good news. Kap sure is getting a lot of help lately. Here are some of the favorited tweets sent his way, because, it really helps him, you guys.
