Lahren posted the photo on Thursday, which mocked Kaepernick’s “GQ Citizen of the Year” title with its caption, and tweeted that it was “food for thought.”

It’s thanksgiving, give us a break with your hate mongering bullshit and go be with loved ones if you have anyone who stands being around you.— Mohanad Elshieky (@MohanadElshieky) November 23, 2017
The only thing that upsets me more than those that co-opt our flag and anthem are those that exploit my family's sacrifice and service for their political agenda. You should be ashamed.— Melissa M Melville (@nerdygrrl) November 23, 2017
Lahren has repeatedly mocked Kaepernick for taking a knee during the national anthem to protest racial inequality and police brutality. After President Trump began criticizing players who kneel at the start of the 2017 season, larger numbers of players also began to kneel rather than stand.
"I would like to ask these players, 'What exactly are you kneeling for and why have you chosen the flag and the anthem to do it?’” Lahren said earlier this year. “I bet if we asked a hundred players, we would get a hundred different answers.”
