Cuban-American Miami Dolphins linebacker Kiko Alonso made his disdain for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick crystal clear in a tweet Sunday following a matchup between the Dolphins and 49ers.
In what may be seen as poetic justice, Alonso made the game-winning play for the Dolphins Sunday when he tackled Kaepernick just a few yards before he was able to run into the end zone to score a go-ahead touchdown. For Alonso, that play was personal.
"Vamos Coño !!!! #FinsUp #MiamiDolphins #MIAvsSF #CubaLibre," Alonso tweeted after the game, which in Spanish translates to "come on, pussy."
Kaepernick came under fire last week after he had a heated exchange with a Miami Herald sports writer who questioned why Kaepernick had worn a shirt adorned with images of Malcolm X and Cuban dictator Fidel Castro earlier in the year.
During the exchange, Kaepernick contended that the shirt was mostly a nod to Malcolm X, but after being pressed, Kaepernick did offer up some praise for the now-deceased brutal Communist dictator.
Kaepernick has since attempted to clarify his comments, alleging that his comments at the press conference were taken out of context.
Still, after the game, Alonso told the Herald that he did try to hit Kaepernick hard, aware of the positive comments he made about Castro.
"Usually, I just try to play my game. But I did try to hit him," he said.
Kaepernick, who played a tough game against the Dolphins, was welcomed to Miami with overwhelming boos from Dolphins fans Sunday, which marked the 10th straight loss for the 49ers — the longest losing streak in franchise history.
