Earlier this week, we reported that the former Dallas Cowboys star Dez Bryant publicly criticized “woke” ex-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Now, Bryant is doubling down on his criticism with the claim that he’s tried to reach out to Kaepernick many times over the years, yet he’s never heard anything back.

Dez Bryant Fires Back At Jemele Hill

When liberal reporter Jemele Hill tweeted that Bryant’s criticisms of Kaepernick were “uninformed,” the 3-time Pro Bowler fired back in a tweet of his own.

I’m a product of media hate so I get it…Jemele Hill you could have called me & got a better understanding of what I was saying ..but you have your own motive,” he wrote. “I’ve reached out to kap for yrs and no response…raising 300 mil would be easy if we had unity amongst athletes.”

Dez Bryant Bashes Colin Kaepernick

This came after Bryant criticized Kaepernick while appearing on the the “I AM ATHLETE” podcast on Monday. 

“I respect Colin Kaepernick. But there is one thing that I don’t respect and I said when I get the opportunity and to get on the stage and say it, I would say it. And I love him to death. So there ain’t no hate or nothing like that,” Bryant said. 

“But brotha, you had the biggest opportunity in the world to create jobs, to build jobs, to give jobs to people,” he added. “The people you was talking about. The people that you were so-called ‘standing up for.’ People who stood beside you, people who lost their jobs because of you. Where you at? I ain’t heard from you. He brought the awareness and that’s why I respect him.”

When asked what the call to action was, Bryant responded by saying that there wasn’t one.

Bryant’s Past Comments On Kaepernick

Bryant had also publicly criticized Kaepernick in 2019. 

“The narrative was created and the dialogue began but that’s just the first step. Where are the next steps?” Bryant asked at the time. “Where is the action behind the words. How do we expect any change if we leave it here. Your attempt to gain entry back into a league that does not agree with your views .. what has and what will change? It is still the same league. At the end of the day you have all the eyes and ears.” 

“Lead the people the right way,” he added. “Create the examples through actions such as what Jay Z has done with collaborating with the NFL in an initiative to create something to benefit social Justice as well as help athletes as myself through life and our careers.”

Most athletes are afraid to attack Kaepernick because he has the “woke” army and the mainstream media behind him.

We applaud Dez Bryant for being one of the few celebrities who is not afraid to call out Colin Kaepernick on his nonsense.
