Embattled former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick has shared a message from incarcerated rapper Meek Mill.
“Spoke to Meek Mill & he wanted ppl to know regardless of his unjust situation, he’s in good spirits & humbled by the support the people have shown him,” Kapernick revealed on Twitter. “We’ll continue to fight against the harsh sentencing practices that have affected Meek & millions of other POC for generations.”
Mill is currently serving a controversial two to four year sentence for parole violation. The judge in the sentencing has been criticized for a questionable past involving Mill, including a request that he leave Roc Nation and instead sign with a personal friend of hers and giving him unsolicited advice on who should manage his career.
While it was widely reported that Mill was up for a bail hearing, the information turned out to be an “administrative error.”
