Disney Rewards Colin Kaepernick’s Anti-Americanism with New ‘Social Justice’ Docuseries

(The Post Millennial) Colin Kaepernick will be the subject in a documentary series produced by ESPN Films in coordination with The Walt Disney Co., according to ESPN.

On Monday, the deal was announced between Kaepernick’s production team Ra Vision Media and Disney, extending across all Disney platforms including Walt Disney Television, ESPN, Hulu, and Pixar. The partnership will focus on telling scripted and unscripted “social justice” stories.

“I am excited to announce this historic partnership with Disney across all of its platforms to elevate Black and Brown directors, creators, storytellers, and producers, and to inspire the youth with compelling and authentic perspectives,” Kaepernick said in a statement.

“I look forward to sharing the docuseries on my life story, in addition to many other culturally impactful projects we are developing,” Kaepernick continued.

Kaepernick was notoriously exiled from the NFL during the 2016 season for taking a knee during the national anthem to protest “police brutality” and “racial inequality.”

He became the face of Nike’s 2018 “Just Do It” campaign and will now work with The Undefeated to develop the work of black creators.

“During this unprecedented time, The Walt Disney Company remains committed to creating diverse and inclusive content that resonates and matters,” said Disney’s executive chairman Bob Iger.
