The former wife of the legendary boxer Muhammad Ali slammed San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, saying the player needs to “get off his high horse” and apologize “for his actions against the American flag.”
“What he’s doing right now is not heroic,” Khalilah Camacho Ali told TMZ.

Ali said she would like to meet with the NFL player to help him share his message in a better way, explaining that she did just that with her late husband.
“I helped Muhammad decide whether he was going to the army or going to jail,” she explained. “He listened to my every word. You see the impact that had on our nation? Colin could absolutely have the same impact if he made the right decisions to really make a difference.”
And she was clear that the $126 million NFL player is not reaching that potential.
“The first thing I would do is ask him about his stance on humanity … what exactly is he trying to improve and how is he going to make that happen?” Ali said.
“Next, I’d have him make a retraction for his actions against the American flag,” she added. “He needs to apologize.”
Ali was also critical of Kaepernick’s actions since saying he’s “not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”

“I will help him meet the groups that will fight with him, donate to charities of all people — not just minorities — because we cannot single anyone out,” she told TMZ. “If he wants isolation to end, he needs to prove that he cares about all people, and not just his people.
“If he is willing to get off his high horse and humble himself, we could do a lot of good together.”
