Colin Kaepernick to front new sports wear campaign

Nike Stock Plunges After Tapping Kaepernick as Ad Campaign Poster Boy

Huckabee added: "I can't imagine how Nike thinks this is a brilliant move for them". Nike is a tenant of mine.

"[Kaepernick] is targeting us", said a Fox News panelist during a discussion about the ad on Tuesday.

A Beaumont city councilman has joined many people around the country protesting Nike's use of Colin Kaepernick in their latest ad campaign by destroying their Nike gear and sharing it on social media.

Following the release of the campaign, people on Twitter started the hashtags #BoycottNike and #JustBurnIt, because that'll send a message obviously.

"Our soundman just cute the Nike swoosh off his socks". Soon Twitter was inundated by reports of former customers who refused to further do business with Nike. "No more Nike purchases by this Patriotic Mom!" Nike also will create an apparel line for Kaepernick and contribute to his Know Your Rights charity, the person said.

"Just Don't", posted one Instagram user. When Vonn received backlash for those comments, she cited athletes whose activism she admired: Billie Jean King, Arthur Ashe - and Kaepernick.

Critics have burned Nike trainers and clothing in protest at Colin Kaepernick's appointment as the face of the brand's new advertising campaign. Hmm, you know how many other sneakers there are to buy?

Nike's sponsorship deal ensures the issue of the national anthem and player protests will re-emerge during the coming season, increasing pressure on the NFL to broker a solution.

Gridiron football is not known to be terribly popular in Iran, but Mr. Ahmedinejad's punditry solicited a warm response from other football fans in his replies.

"It's a unsafe move in that I'm certain there is already a boycott under way, but in the case of Nike I think those most likely to boycott are not likely to be their core audience", O'Keefe said. "The social justice issues that Colin and other professional athletes have raised deserve our attention and action".

Sportswear brand Nike has risked incurring the Twitter wrath of U.S. president Donald Trump after it selected Colin Kaepernick as one of 30 faces to mark its 30th anniversary celebration of the "Just Do It" tagline from Wieden + Kennedy.

However, many interpret his actions, which have subsequently been copied by dozens of other National Football League players and sports stars in different disciplines, as a lack of respect to the country's flag as well as servicemen and women.
