In a decision announced on Monday the magazine selected former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick who, by starting the trend of kneeling for the National Anthem, is largely responsible for the decline in the league's attendance and ratings.

The interview runs in the December 2017 issue of GQ.

The list also includes Stephen Colbert being named the Bad Hombre of the Year, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman of the Year, and Golden State Warrior Kevin Durant as the Champion of the Year.

Gadot, who emerged as a feminist icon in 2017 for her portrayal of the courageous and powerful Wonder Woman in the summer blockbuster, was aptly named Wonder Woman of the Year.


The magazine will release a cover story for a different person of the year every day through Thursday.

And while the story discusses Kaepernick's supposed fight for racial justice, but it managed to get in some shots at president.

The public stand of the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, who is now without a team, has sparked a wave of similar protests across the National Football League and other athletic events. He began his kneeling during the anthem at the start of the 2016 season, and after parting ways with the Niners during the 2017 offseason, he has been unable to find a job ever since.

Football legend Jim Brown has changed his mind about the national anthem protest, telling TMZ Sports he is "fine" with it now. One of the Men of the Year.
