T-shirts sold outside Bills game include rifle sight on Kaepernick

Quarterback Colin Kaepernick made his first start on Sunday in nearly a year, against the Bills. Outside the team’s stadium, T-shirts for sale allowed fans to make a strong (and alarming) statement about the anthem protest.

Via Robert Klemko of, one of the T-shirts has an image of Kaepernick with a rifle sight on him. The text says “Wanted” above the photo and “Notorious Disgrace to America” below it.

Elsewhere outside the stadium, one group of fans were hitting a dummy wearing a Kaepernick jersey and an afro wig. Per Klemko, one fan yelled, “Tackle the Muslim.”

None of this behavior traces to the Bills organization, and it won’t be a surprise if similar incidents occur at other 49ers road games, if Kaepernick continues to start.
