Twitter erupted Monday with accusations of white privilege and racism as leftists went on the attack after Tim Tebow was reportedly set for another shot at playing in the NFL even as national anthem protester Colin Kaepernick still sits on the sidelines.
News broke on Monday that the Jacksonville Jaguars are expected to sign former Heisman Trophy winner and NFL and MBA layer Tim Tebow to a one-year contract:
The #Jaguars are planning to sign QB-turned-TE Tim Tebow to a 1-year deal, per me and @TomPelissero, a deal that could be official in the next week or so. Nothing done yet. But he’ll have a chance to make the team to reunite with his mentor and college head coach Urban Meyer.

But with news of the Jags deal, leftists unloaded on Twitter:

Being a “good person” has absolutely nothing to do with benefiting from white privilege https://t.co/VkVu0mTfbk

There’s no way you can tell me that Tim Tebow deserves to be on a team as an unproven tight end who hasn’t played in 9 years more than Colin Kaepernick. There’s just no way that’s gonna make sense.

I don't ever want to hear another word about how Colin Kaepernick isn't good enough for another shot at the NFL. https://t.co/7hb4UoWddk

Colin Kaepernick is younger and led a team to the Super Bowl https://t.co/AHpuVhH4xt

Maybe Colin Kaepernick should have changed his position to tight end. pic.twitter.com/YQkAENG5Sg

Tim Tebow hasn’t played in 8 seasons.
Colin Kaepernick hasn’t played in 4.
