Colin Kaepernick is back in red and gold.
The San Francisco signal caller drew ire from 49ers fans and football analysts alike for donning a Miami Dolphins hat on the Fourth of July.
Kaepernick, who hails from Milwaukee, Wis., and Turlock, Calif., defended himself on Instagram with the caption, "This the hat y'all mad at?"
This the hat y'all mad at? I'm goin wear what I want regardless of what you think, all you need to... http://t.co/w33gKBxZek

It's just swag it ain't never hurt nobody! #GoldenStateofMind http://t.co/YB7RDfQnCw
