Colin Kaepernick’s longtime partner, Nessa Diab, has lashed out at the NFL over its reaction to Harrison Butker’s comments.

The Kansas City Chiefs kicker has been the talk of both social and mainstream media since his comments at a graduation ceremony at a Catholic college.

While he has attracted rife criticism, Butker has seen lots of support come his way. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell refused to condemn him despite a previous statement released by the league shortly after the speech went viral. He has also been defended by Chiefs head coach Andy Reid and teammates Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce.

Many have pointed out that Kaepernick was hardly treated with the same grace, having been blackballed over his decision to kneel during the national anthem.

Diab has reacted to the support Butker has received by sharing a post to her Instagram Story which reads: “You all line up to defend Harrison Butker’s opinion. But when Colin Kaepernick took a knee to state his, you all lost your S. Guess it was about racism after all.”

Another section of the post she shared claimed Butker’s speech was “misogynistic and harmful.”

“The different reaction to the two should tell you everything,” it continues.

“Tell me again how we don’t live in a place that has different rules depending on what body you live in.”

Colin Kaepernick Hasn’t Given Up On A Return To The NFL

Colin Kaepernick hasn’t played in the NFL for nearly a decade, although he has tried to make his way back on a few occasions. He reached out to the New York Jets after they lost Aaron Rodgers to a season-ending injury last season, but to no avail.

He’s now 36, yet he keeps himself in shape in case an opportunity arises.

As for Butker, the Kicker will not be punished for what he said and will return to the Chiefs for next season after helping them win three Super Bowls.

Colin Kaepernick has been out of the NFL since the 2016 national anthem debacle. He has since been in many controversies surrounding the league and has made numerous attempts at rejoining the league, with the most recent being in try coming in 2023.

However, the former 49ers signal-caller is not the only NFL Star involved in controversies. Recently, Kansas City Chiefs punter Harrison Butker was embroiled in some controversies after making some misogynistic comments during a college commencement speech in Kansas City.

Kaepernick obviously has his eyes set on the league that seems to have caused him so much trouble. He has now made his stance on the whole Butker situation noted, claiming that there is some “hypocrisy” involved.

The former NFL quarterback reposted an Instagram story posted initially by his girlfriend, Nessa Diab. In it, Diab reposts the many comparisons made between the NFL’s stances on Kaepernick’s actions in 2016 to Butker’s opinions during the aforementioned speech.

Colin Kaepernick Adds To His Beef With The NFL

It should be noted that Goodell has not given Butker any consequences for his statement. There is not much that the league can do based on how and where he made the comments. They weren’t against the NFL, so the league isn’t taking any disciplinary actions.

On the other hand, the league was able to take action against Kaepernick because his act took place before games. The league deemed the actions inappropriate, so the signal caller was essentially blackballed by the NFL.

It seems as though Colin Kaepernick could possibly make a return after last year’s attempt. However, it doesn’t seem likely that the former star quarterback will end up on an NFL squad anytime soon. It doesn’t seem like he would want to play in a league that caused him so much trouble.
