WATCH: 49ers fan burns Kaepernick jersey while playing national anthem

If the past 24 hours are any indication, there might not be any Colin Kaepernick jerseys left in America by the end of the week.

In a twist of irony, fans of the 49ers quarterback are protesting his protest by burning their Kaepernick jersey as a form of protest against him. Several 49ers fans have taken to social media over the past 24 hours to share videos that involve Kaepernick's jersey being burning.

Kaepernick's popularity with some fans took a big hit on Friday night after he refused to stand for the national anthem.

Fittingly enough, two of the fans who burnt Kaepernick's jersey did it while the national anthem was playing in the background.

Here's one of the videos.

The second video has some language that's not safe for our family-friendly website, but you can see it by clicking here.

There's a good chance we could see more Kaepernick jerseys being burning in the near future because the 49ers quarterback has promised that he's going to continue to sit until there is "significant change" and he feels like the "flag represents what it's supposed to represent in this country."

Right now, Kaepernick believes the flag represents things like police brutality, which is why he has chosen not to stand.

Anyway, if we've learned one thing during Kaepernick's career, it's that his jersey is definitely flammable. Kaepernick's protest marks the second time in less than two years that fans have become so upset with him that they decided to burn his jersey.
