#ImWithKap Trends on Twitter as Hundreds Gather Outside NFL Headquarters in Support of Kaepernick
Hundreds of protestors gathered outside of NFL headquarters in New York City in support of Colin Kaepernick, who many believe is being blackballed by the league for his widely-publicized protest last year.
Kaepernick became a household name after he began taking a knee during the National Anthem before the game in protest of police brutality. The reaction was divided between supporters who applaud the quarterback’s peaceful protest and dissenters who believe he was disrespecting the country.
The hashtag #ImWithKap began trending on Twitter while protests at NFL headquarters were underway.

Blacklisting Kaepernick is completely un-American and proves why his protest is necessary. #ImWithKap
