Yesterday April 10, Colin Kaepernick’s world and offseason was rocked when he and a couple of his NFL buddies were named in a dicey sexual assault complaint. Although there were no arrests or charges filed, the sports nation and his San Francisco 49ers took great notice to the situation.
Kaepernick has wasted no time getting on his Twitter soapbox to address the recent allegations, as well as denouncing TMZ’s report on the matter.
“The charges made in the TMZ story and other stories I’ve seen are completely wrong,” the star quarterback stated to the online forum. “They make things up about me that never happened.”
TMZ alleged that a woman–whom Kaepernick had previously been intimate with–hit a “bong of marijuana,” only to pass out after she got naked and Kaepernick begin to kiss her. “I take great pride in who I am and what I do, but I guess sometimes you have to deal with someone who makes things up,” continued Kaepernick in his open statement, yet the accounts do indeed match the Miami Police Department report (see here.)
TMZ was also keen to point out that Kaepernick was vague and unspecific where their scoop was wrong.
In conclusion, the 49ers star finished with, “I want to thank all of the people who have shared their encouraging sentiments. I assure you that your faith is not misplaced.”
There’s always three sides to any story. Hit the gallery to see his entire thoughts on the situation.
