Colin Kaepernick attended last night's Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year Awards where he was honored with the Muhammad Ali Legacy Award by the beautiful Queen Bey.
The award is given to an athlete who uses their platform to promote change. Beyoncé said to Kaepernick: "Colin took action with no fear of consequence or repercussion only hope to change the world for the better. To change perception, to change the way we treat each other, especially people of color."
While many fans and advocates of Kaep's movement were excited and congratulated him for his well deserved award, it's also expected that some haters show face and open their mouths to this news as well. Of course, I'm talking about Tomi Lahren..
She seemed to express disappointment with the award presenter AND with who the award was given to this year..
Below is actual footage of Beyonce summoning the Bey Hive
THEY'RE HEEERRREEEEEEE. *STING STING STING*
We'll let them handle her.
As always, with success comes hate. But this award and Colin and what he's been doing all while being blackballed by the NFL is way bigger than what Tomi or anyone else has to say. This was so amazing to watch, we're all so happy for him, and we hope he goes no where but up from here....AND A CONTRACT SOON!
