Kaepernick 'Favorites' Hate Tweets for Motivation

After a sluggish start to the 2013 NFL season, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is saving hate tweets directed at him as “favorites” to motivate him. 

On his Twitter account, Kaepernick “favorites” tweets that criticize him, and some of those tweets have included ones that have said he is “absolute garbage” who is “not smart enough” to be quarterback.

Another tweet Kaepernick marked as a “favorite” was from a San Francisco fan who tweeted at Kaepernick that he wanted “Alex Smith back.” Smith is the quarterback Kaepernick replaced last season after Smith had to leave a game because of a concussion. Smith now plays for the 3-0 Kansas City Chiefs.
