Miami Dolphins fans mercilessly booed San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick Sunday afternoon in Miami.
Kaepernick has been in the news recently after a tense exchange over the merits of recently deceased Cuban dictator Fidel Castro with a local Florida reporter. Miami, which has a large Cuban population, didn’t let Kaepernick forget about it.
As he took the field the stadium broke out into an insane amount of booing.

Kaepernick has been at the center of a media firestorm all season for his refusal to stand for the national anthem prior to games because he thinks minorities are oppressed.
