49ers QB Colin Kaepernick Is Sorry For Flood Tweet

May 27, 2015 | By Garrett Montgomery More

49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is sorry after sending a very stupid tweet, which more or less mocked the Texas and Oklahoma flooding. Kaepernick posted a picture of floating cars in Houston where 18 people died with a silly comment that was rapidly slammed by his followers; the backlash led to an apology.

49ers Quarterback Sorry

A 49ers quarterback is sorry for an insensitive tweet. San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick acted a fool, made his team and his state look bad, and he is now manning up.

On Tuesday, Kaepernick took Twitter where he shared a picture of several cars in a flooded area in Houston, Texas and captioned it:

“I warned you the #7torms Coming ! ! ! #Houston.”

Kaepernick’s jersey number is 7. The quarterback was rapidly slammed, called a monster and evil for joking about such a horrible disaster.

While Colin Kaepernick might not be aware of it, the flooding, which affected Oklahoma and Texas may have killed at least 18 people, and over a dozen are still missing. Laura McComb and her two children from Wimberley, Texas called her sister before being washed away. McComb’s sister, Julie Shields said:

“A little after 1 o’clock in the morning, she called me and said: ‘I just want you to know the ceiling has caved in, and the house is floating down the water.Tell Mom and Dad that I love them. I love you, and pray.'”

The 49ers quarterback deleted the tweet and apologized. He wrote:

“No disrespect intended! Prayers up!.I’m so sorry about my insensitive post earlier today. I didn’t fully understand how many people are struggling in Houston right now and I feel horrible. My prayers are with everyone there.”

The Mayor of Houston Annise Parker wants more than an apology from the quarterback; she wants him to help. Parker said in a statement:

“Anything Colin Kaepernick said isn’t really of concern to us. We’re focusing on what’s going on here. We still have rain coming. We’re focused on getting our residents what they need. He apologized. I’m sure he is sorry for what he did, so he is forgiven. This is too serious a situation to hold a grudge. If he is truly remorseful, he can donate to our food bank, to the Red Cross. Any of those avenues.”

What are thoughts on Colin Kaepernick’s controversy?
