Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who ignited a national movement last year after refusing to stand during the national anthem before NFL games, has been named GQ's "Citizen of the Year". Late-night host Stephen Colbert, actress Gal Gadot and Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant are also recognized in the issue.

Be sure to check out the December issue to see more of what Kapernick has to say and where he's headed with his message.

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

The cover of the magazine released on Monday shows the former 49ers quarterback with a big Afro and a black leather jacket.

Kaepernick took to social media on Monday morning to share the exciting cover, and while there is no shortage of haters on Twitter, the majority of responses to the magazine's choice of featuring him were overwhelmingly grateful.

Kaepernick began a movement past year when he kneeled during the national anthem before a game as a way of peacefully protesting injustice toward minorities in the United States. 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. One of the Men of the Year.
