Colin Kaepernick‘s protest is screwing up the NFL ecosystem for black QBs and costing them major money … so says “The Wire” actor J.D. Williams who says Colin’s hurting more than he’s helping.
Williams has been in a ton of stuff, but he’s most famous for playing street soldier Bodie Broadus for four seasons on HBO’s “The Wire.”
Williams took to his Twitter moments ago and fired off a series of tweets doing something most black celebrities have shied away from doing … criticizing Colin Kaepernick’s protest.
“I appreciate Kaepernicks’ sentiment and attempt at a statement but he didn’t HAVE to sacrifice his career in THAT way. Nice try?”
“We do REMEMBER black QBs in the NFL weren’t even a THING really until about 7 yrs ago right? Kaep f**ked up their money … with a big ass fro.”
He didn’t stop there, going on to imply Colin’s protest wasn’t a smart thing to do, because his employer (the NFL) doesn’t care about his politics.
Spike Lee is now promoting a huge rally for Kaep at NFL headquarters later this month — don’t save a spot for J.D. though.
