Colin Kaepernick Takes Offense To Twitter Criticism, Quickly Fires Back

Colin Kaepernick is a very hard worker, and nobody is about to tell him otherwise.

The San Francisco 49ers quarterback already has begun his offseason training, and he took to Twitter on Wednesday to give fans a glimpse of his regimen. [tweet https://twitter.com/Kaepernick7/status/568162378925215744 align=’center’]

That’s pretty impressive and all, but one fan apparently didn’t think so, dropping a sweet burn on the 27-year-old QB. [tweet https://twitter.com/battman_returns/status/568173496158658560 align=’center’]

What this unsuspecting soul didn’t know, however, was that Kaepernick wasn’t in the mood for fun and games. Quite the opposite, in fact.

Well, that escalated quickly.

Ironically enough, Kaepernick’s tirade gained this random Twitter user quite a bit of exposure, as his number of followers shot up from single digits to over 1,500 as of Wednesday night.

Then again, this guy didn’t do “1000 abs” and had the nerve to criticize a player who finished 20th in the NFL in passer rating in 2014, so let’s just go ahead and call him a failure.
