For Standing Up to Sit Down During the National Anthem in IB Times
International model and actress Mia Isabella spoke out this week in support for her San Francisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick in response to the public backlash he has received for refusing to stand up during the National Anthem due to political reasons.
“I stand with [Kaepernick] because I understand the message,” she said in an exclusive statement to the International Business Times via email Monday. “I am a trans woman of color watching the world around me in dismay at the civil rights issues my community are currently facing. Trans people of color are being murdered at an alarming rate and they are not getting the publicity so many other situations are this is not a new thing it is just newly being televised.”
As is always inquired by the press, the tiny TS with the big heart said dismissed the press typical relationship question and left it at that, but made a strong statement on why she is supporting the outspoken NFL player.
“[He] reminded me that no matter what creed or sexuality or gender, I was a Queen and I believe I was able to also inspire the same boldness in him as well,” the model explained. “In fact, I remember many times where I was told my way of thinking, my fight, my drive and resilience did ignite the King in him.”
