Social media can be a cruel place for outspoken celebrities that use the platform to voice their opinions — especially when politics and social issues are involved.
Pop legend Mariah Carey learned that lesson on Saturday, when she hung out with former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Carey also snapped a photo with Kaep, and posted it on Instagram, to show her support for him, as you can see below.
“Such an honor to meet @kaepernick7 today!” the caption read.
The comments were absolutely ruthless.
