San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is catching some major heat after sending what some are calling an insensitive social media post.

The post to his Instagram account showed dozens of cars half submerged in flood waters.

Houston has been hit hard by severe weather — with recent storms bringing more than 11 inches of rain in 24 hours.

Kaepernick posted the photo saying “I warned you the #7tormsComing !!!! #Houston.”

At least 25 people have been confirmed dead because of the storm that swept across Northern Mexico and Texas.

Kaepernick later deleted the post and apologized, saying “No disrespect intended! Prayers up!” and that he “didn’t fully understand how many people are struggling in Houston right now.”
