Major Sponsor Standing Behind 49ers QB

EXCLUSIVE

Colin Kaepernick MusclePharm Sexual AssaultOne of Colin Kaepernick's biggest sponsors is standing behind the 49ers QB in the wake of a sexual assault investigation -- telling TMZ Sports Colin DESERVES the benefit of the doubt.

We spoke to Brad Pyatt -- founder and CEO of MusclePharm -- who tells us he's aware of the situation in Miami but says, "Colin's been a standup athlete for us. I'd be shocked if this were true."

Colin has been a spokesperson for the supplement company since March 2013 -- and Brad says he has no plans to end their relationship. 

Pyatt says he'll continue to monitor the situation but strongly believes "We should let the judicial system take its course." For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!

These NFL Stars need to stop using drugs. The NFL needs to get kick out these players from the league. It needs to be a clean sport and no more raping and drug use. This behavior is not acceptable.

This isn't even a correct report. There was no accusations made or charges filed. It was simply a drunk bitch that woke up in the hospital and had to explain herself.

TMZ is the only one calling it a sexual assault investigation. Since the woman said to her knowledge she didn't have sex, it looks like for now it's a suspicious incident investigation. I guess saying that wouldn't get as much clicks.

TMZ, why don't you report that Miami PD called you out specifically and said that you'd taken this story completely out of context?

TMZ is on an island right now jumping to sexual assault. Could end up in that direction, but I've seen no non TMZ source making that claim

1. Of course they want to 'stand behind him' - they wanna tap that tight azz too.
2. he's a punk thug wanna be who was spoiled and had evrything handed to him on a silver platter his entire life. he put his parents through hell with his childish antics
3. he thinks having a quarter mile of tattoos makes him look 'cool' but with the oversized straight-billed hats, he looks like a doofus.
4. he flashes gang signs in just about EVERY photo he is in and should be released just like DeSean
5. his eyes are set too close together gjving him a severe case of "rat face"
6. why he insists on shaving and maintaining the appearance of a terrorist is anybody's guess, but remember - he does it to LOOK COOL ??~!!~??
7. i know i'm not the only one that has noticed his ankles are STICK THIN.... [gross]

An NFL player in trouble with the law? That never happens. Typical! You can take the player out of the "hood" but you can't take the "hood" out of the players. Toss em in jail next to Hernandez start a team and they can play Adam Sandlers team.
