Kaepernick reportedly decided to stop his national anthem protest because he didn’t want to take away from the “positive change” it created, but Fox Sports pundit Clay Travis uncovered the real reason on “Outkick The Coverage” on Tuesday.

Colin Kaepernick “said that he would stop his protest when he felt like things have changed,” Travis began. “Oh how the irony is out there.” (RELATED: Colin Kaepernick Gives Up On National Anthem Protest)

“Colin Kaepernick actually decided to stop his protest because he doesn’t have a contract anymore and he was aware that many teams would not want to sign him and bring on the conflict of having a player sit down on his knee during the national anthem,” Travis said.

“Which means that Colin Kaepernick, erstwhile ‘social justice warrior,’ is really just a bitch who wanted to make as much money as he possibly could–and once his money was threatened, he didn’t feel so strong about his political beliefs,” Travis continued.

“That’s the truth. That’s a hundred percent the truth of the Colin Kaepernick protest. He’s not a hero. He’s not Rosa Parks. He’s just a not-very-intelligent person who decided to start a not-very intelligent-protest who had absolutely no impact in a positive way upon anything that he tried to discuss.”
