Kaepernick responds by posting the definition of Stockholm Syndrome.
It looks like Colin Kaepernick has heard Michael Vick's advice, and he has responded with a simple post on twitter, as well as instagram.
While Kaepernick didn't tag Vick or mention his name in his most recent IG post, which is a screenshot of the definition of Stokholm Syndrome, it is clearly directed at the retired NFL QB.
The post reads, in part,
"When an abused victim, develops a kind of respect and empathy towards their abuser."
"This syndrome is also called 'traumatic bonding' or 'victim brainwashing.'"
Vick, appearing on Fox Sports 1's "Speak For Yourself," advised the free agent QB to cut his hair in an effort to clean up his image and better his chances of getting another job in the NFL.
"First thing we've got to get Colin to do is cut his hair. Listen, I'm not up here to try to be politically correct. Even if he puts cornrows in there. I don't think he should represent himself in that way in terms of just the hairstyle. Just go clean-cut. You know, why not? You're already dealing with a lot of controversy surrounding this issue. The most important thing that he needs to do is just try to be presentable," he said.
"I just think perception and image is everything. This is not the Colin Kaepernick that we've known since he entered the National Football League. I'm just going off my personal experiences. Listen, I love the guy to death. But I want him to also succeed on and off the field. This has to be a start for him," he said.
