Not all athletes are created equal!
This is UFC star fighter Jorge Masvidal has called Colin Kaepernick, as a coward. The Cuban-American fighter responded to the situation in Cuba through a video on Twitter, then later shamed the activist former NFL quarterback on Instagram.
Masvidal’s video was mostly about the protests of the Cuban people who are sick of the communist government and want freedom from them.
Masvidal talked about his father and real oppression, saying the following:
My father escaped Cuba when he was 14 years old,” Masvidal began. “And I’ve only heard the horror stories since I could process thoughts of how s— this communist regime, killing machine is. So I just want to shed some light on Cuba — big SOS signal for them.
This oppression has been going on for 61 years… It’s not just because of the pandemic, or it’s not just because they ran out of medicine, they’ve been out of resources and food because of the corrupt government and the extreme corruption over there where only a few at the top eat and everyone has to suffer.

At some point, Masvidal also shared a meme of Colin Kaepernick next to the Cuban protests, Kaepernick is wearing a shirt of the late Fidel Castro in the picture.
Masvidal calls Kaepernick a coward and suggests this man knows nothing about real oppression. Kaepernick is a millionaire former NFL quarterback – there’s nothing oppressed about him.
Here’s the picture that Masvidal shared, along with his comment that was posted on Instagram:
He wore the Castro shirt back in 2016 and caught a ton of slack for it, as he should. He tried to defend wearing the shirt by saying he agreed with Castro’s views on education and not his oppression.
Well, yeah, just about everyone on the planet agrees that education is important, even psychopaths.
But that doesn’t mean you should wear a shirt supporting them.
I believe Jorge Masvidal is correct in his statement about Colin Kaepernick.
Maybe Colin Kaepernick can go live in Cuba for a few days, then come back and tell us how oppressed he really was.
