The Formation singer was brought out as a surprise presenter by Daily Show host and comedian Trevor Noah. Colin took action with no fear of consequences or repercussions, only hope to change the world for the better'. Kaepernick refused to stand during the "Star-Spangled Banner" as a way to protest the unequal treatment of black Americans and other people of color in the United States, especially in regards to police brutality.

Kaepernick made a rare a public appearance Tuesday night when he was awarded Sports Illustrated's Muhammad Ali Legacy Award in recognition of what he's done for various charities and communities around the country for the past 16 months.

"Colin took action with no fear of outcome or repercussion, only hope to change the world for the better", Beyonce said on Tuesday night in quotes reported by ESPN.

President Donald Trump is a vocal critic of the protests.

Kaepernick's current status as a National Football League free agent has brought him and the police brutality cause a wave of support, as it has raised questions about whether he was being blackballed by the NFL.

No December wedding plans for Anushka-Virat
However, it seems that the reports are false as Anushka's spokesperson has denied the news and has termed it false and baseless. However, much to everyone's disappointment, the reports of Virat and Anushka's wedding turned out to be mere rumors.


Regardless, Kaepernick is nowhere near done fighting the good fight.

Kaepernick was named the victor of the award after he started kneeling during the national anthem last season to protest racial inequality and police brutality in America. Because if it were not for my love of the people, I would not have protested.

After he accepted the award, the former 49ers quarterback said he will continue combating racial injustice in America whether or not he returns to the NFL.

We're not crying, YOU ARE.

The full award show will air on NBC Sports Network on Friday.
