Colin Kaepernick

Claims TMZ Story Is Wrong

Colin Kaepernick came out swinging today claiming TMZ's story -- that he is a suspect in a sexual assault case -- is wrong ... but he didn't say how it was wrong. 

Kaepernick tweeted, "The charges made in the TMZ story and other stories I’ve seen are completely wrong. They make things up about me that never happened."

"I take great pride in who I am and what I do, but I guess sometimes you have to deal with someone who makes things up."

Kaepernick was not specific about what portion of our story he disputes. 

As we reported, a law enforcement source at the Miami PD told us Kaepernick is a suspect in a sexual assault case. 

The Miami PD also told USA Today he was a suspect in a sexual assault case -- but then backtracked and said it was for a "suspicious incident."

Kaepernick added, "I want to thank all of the people who have shared their encouraging sentiments. I assure you that your faith is not misplaced."

TMZ has made numerous calls to Kaepernick's camp -- both before and after we posted the story -- but they have not responded.

As for the investigation, a woman claims she was naked in a bed with Colin after smoking marijuana -- and the next thing she knew she was in a hospital. 

The case is being investigated by the Special Victim's Unit -- which handles sex crimes, along with crimes against minors and the elderly.

There's a problem here    

These guys will never learn. The #1 goal is to get pregnant. If that doesn't work the #2 goal is to cry rape. Celebs should find voyeurs who can hang out while they have all of their encounters so the bitches who don't turn up pregnant can't cry rape.

TMZ -- he said you got it completely wrong -- how much clearer can he be? Why don't you explain how you got it even marginally right? You're the "news" organization, after all. Is there any journalistic low beneath which you won't sink?

Okay so here are the facts. She has had consensual sex with him a few times before. She had been drinking, taking bing hits, and let's be honest probably an oxy. She undressed WILLINGLY, then woke up in the hospital......Sounds like Kaep didn't want a dead whore in his house and brought her unconscious self to the hospital. What a gentleman! But honestly you can't smear this guys name through the mud so early. She said nothing of ANY sexual wrong doing.

We all know TMZ is just a gossip site that lacks the same standards real journalist are taught to uphold. You have to take everything TMZ reports with a grain of salt and a smile.

LMAO "he didn't say how it was wrong". TMZ once again trying to make something out of nothing. Miami is out of your thirty mile zone dbags, why don't you losers stick to the Paris Hilton's and leave the athletes out of your fake news stories. TMZ is proud to be mentioned with the likes of National Enquirer and The Onion.. BWAHHHHAHA

So, even in this article TMZ fails to mention that the female has repeatedly denied having sex with Kaepernick. Seems like TMZ is only telling the part of the story that they want to tell.
