Colin Kaepernick Fined for Using N-Word
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has reportedly been fined for using the N-word during last week’s game against the Chicago Bears.
According to ESPN, Kaepernick was fined $11,000 for using “inappropriate language” and received an unsportsmanlike penalty.
NFL refs claimed the quarterback directed the racial slur toward Bears’ defensive end Lamarr Houston.
Kaepernick has denied using the derogatory word and told the Associated Press he plans to appeal the fine.
