San Francisco 49ers’ Colin Kaepernick has been refusing to stand for the national anthem ahead of NFL games.
There has been a mixed reaction to his refusal to stand in protest over racial injustice in the US.
Some fans filmed themselves burning his jersey, while others have praised him for taking a stand for African-Americans and other minorities.
