Colin Kaepernick Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

Rapper J. Cole created headlines throughout the NFL when he publicly released a letter that long-time free-agent NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick sent to the New York Jets.

In the letter to the famous franchise, Kaepernick pleaded not to be signed to the active roster as a stopgap measure to the Aaron Rodgers injury, but rather to be given a chance to prove himself on the practice squad in what he called a win-win situation for the Jets.

The letter proved controversial among league fans and commentators alike.

Speaking on The Breakfast Club, New York radio personality Charlamagne tha God absolutely torched Kaepernick for his latest move, which he called “downright pathetic” among other insults.

“I wish that letter was never written,” Charlamagne said. “That letter was tragically sad and downright pathetic. Colin Kaepernick has let his setback become his identity, and I hate that for him. It pains to see that man still begging to be in a league that he called racist and he compared to a plantation.”

He didn’t stop there, either.

“And I hate that he can never speak for himself. He always got somebody else speaking for him or putting out his message for him. That’s so wack to me. I wish Colin the best in all his endeavors but just begging these same people you called racist for an opportunity is pitiful.”

Kaepernick did not immediately respond to the insults.

The NFL world was quick to react to the the so-called ‘downright pathetic’ move by Kaepernick as he attempts his NFL comeback once again:
