“The 49ers are allowing this to come out from an employee and it’s making for a hostile work environment for us at the stadium,” he said.
Earlier in the week, the San Francisco Police Union issued a similar statement after Kaepernick made inflammatory comments about the police.
"Perhaps Mr. Kaepernick could comment on the murder of 40 police officers in the United States in the past few months, or the assaults perpetrated on over 100,000 law enforcement officers in the past year," the union said.
“Perhaps he could lend his commentary to the over 8,000 murders that African-Americans inflicted on one another in 2015. The law enforcement community cannot be continuously blamed for all of society’s problems, including racial divide, in our country. It isn’t fair and it isn’t true.”
In response to growing criticism about his decision to sit out the national anthem, Kaepernick has pledged to donate $1 million to community charities across the country.
