Seattle Seahawks fans are crying foul after a recent commercial starring the 49ers' Colin Kaepernick debuted this past week.In the Beats by Dre commercial, Kaepernick is on a team bus surrounded by fans of an opposing team. They're yelling and throwing things at the bus, so Kaepernick puts on his headphones to drown them out.While the ad doesn't reference the Seahawks directly, the angry fans appear to be wearing Seahawks colors.Seattle fans, some of whom are calling for a Beats by Dre boycott, are expressing their outrage on Twitter: Everyone in Seattle needs to boycott @beatsbydre because of that @ColinKaepernick commercial #GoHawks #Seahawks #12thMan— Kristie Kuzmick (@KikiKuzmick) December 12, 2013 Congrats, Beats by Dre, that commercial just alienated the #12thMan. Also, clearly wasn't actually filmed in Seattle! #GoHawks— Alison (@Alison_RN) December 8, 2013 No word yet on whether the popular headphone company is planning to appease Seattle fans with a commercial starring, say, Russell Wilson or Marshawn Lynch. Or how about place kicker Steven Hauschka?
