San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was fined $10,000 by the NFL for wearing Beats by Dre headphones during his postgame press conference on Sunday night.

The NFL recently banned players from wearing non-Bose headphones when addressing the media before and games and during practices. In March, the NFL and Bose reached a deal to make Bose the official headphone of the NFL.

Kaepernick, who has a deal with Beat by Dre, wore pink Beats during his postgame press conference.

After he announced that he was hit with a $10,000 fine from the NFL, Kap posted a picture on Instagram with the caption, “I support breast cancer awareness! My grandma is a survivor!”

However, it is unknown if Kap will be footing the bill. When asked if Beats by Dre would be paying the fine, Kap answered, “We’ll let that be unanswered.”

    Kap you knew the rules, you chose to wear headphones of your choice anyway. If you truly did it to support Breast Cancer prevention then pay the fine yourself. Otherwise you just another media whore. Grow up already
