WATCH: Trailer for new season of South Park takes aim at Colin Kaepernick in merciless fashion
In typical South Park fashion, there’s no holding back.
Even if you’re no fan of the NFL, you may well be aware of the reasons why San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is in the news at the moment.
Kaepernick has been refusing to stand for the US National Anthem before games of late, saying he would not “show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of colour”.
A number of Kaepernick’s NFL colleagues have shown their support for his stance in recent days, but he wasn’t getting any sympathy from the folks at South Park ahead of the Season 20 premiere this week.
The 30-second teaser shows a number of familiar South Park characters standing to sing an alternative version of the national anthem dedicated to Kaepernick that starts out as a tribute before turning into a merciless piss-take.
