San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick apparently made a huge NFL faux pas by going out in public wearing another team's hat. Shock and outrage spread throughout the Twitterverse for some strange reason, prompting Kaepernick to feel he must address the situation. The hat in question was of the Miami Dolphins variety as he was snapped by a photographer during a Fourth of July party. "This the hat y'all mad at? I'm goin wear what I want regardless of what you think," Kaepernick said, via Instagram. "All you need to worry about is the fact that I grind for my teammates and the 49ers! I plan on doin this until they won't let me in the building! #ridiculous #y'allmustbebored" Kaepernick is well known to accesorize, as he owns several pairs of sneakers and hats, so it looks like the colors matched... end of story. NFL.com's Chris Wesseling writes: ' Bitter fans too often come off like jilted lovers. That might be understandable with a player who failed to live up to his potential, but Kaepernick has given 49ers fans no reason to doubt his fidelity. He began offseason workouts a week after the Super Bowl and even trained with track athletes for two weeks in April. His commitment level is beyond reproach. '
