Colin Kaepernick was named Monday as one of GQ’s men of the year.
The former NFL quarterback graced the cover of the men’s magazine with the headline “Citizen of the Year.”
Kaepernick took place in a photoshoot, as well. GQ wrote that Kaepernick graced the cover specifically because of his activism work.
Kaepernick, according to the magazine, agreed to be on the cover because he wanted to “reclaim the narrative” centered around his protest.
In September, President Trump said “any son of a [expletive]” who protested during the national anthem deserved to be fired, sparking mass protests around the league.
