Rapper Snoop Dogg had some stern words for Colin Kaepernick, after the outspoken quarterback for The San Francisco 49ers. Last week, Kaepernick seemed to support Castro in an answer to a question about why he wore a shirt with a picture of the deceased Cuban dictator in August. Snoop called Kaepernick a hypocrite for his support of Fidel Castro. Snoop appeared on Sports 1’s “Undisputed” show and when asked about Kaepernick and his views on Castro, the rap star did not hold back. “He’s sort of kind of hypocritical in so many words because he’s pushing this, but at the same time he’s giving credit for this and this is the same abuse that [Cubans] been taking” the rapper said. “So it makes you hypocritical to be able to speak on this topic and that topic.”
