Nike Customers Are Burning Their Clothes Due To Kaepernick Decision

Nike revealed yesterday that Colin Kaepernick - the out-of-work NFL quarterback who generated controversy for kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial injustice and police brutality - would be one of the faces of its 30th anniversary "Just Do It" campaign.

Kaepernick, who has not played in the National Football League since early 2017, is suing the organisation - claiming that team owners have frozen him out to due to his activism. "Even if it means sacrificing everything".

Previously, Trump has been quite clear that he does not believe the NFL's ability to make business decisions he disagrees with "is what this country is all about".

Nike signed Kaepernick to an endorsement deal in 2011 and has maintained that contract since then, ESPN reported.

In August 2016, Kaepernick began the movement to kneel during the US national anthem in protest of racial injustice. Despite massive public pressure from supporters and some sports outlets, including ESPN, no National Football League team signed Kaepernick. The NFL quarterback's movement spread around the NFL, causing Trump to say past year that any player who knelt during the anthem was a "son of a bitch" and should be fired.

Material for Nike's new campaign featuring Kaepernick, who no longer players professional football, began circulating on September 3.

Nike newest "Just Do It" campaign posed some problems for the brand as far as patriotism is concerned and the newest supporter of Colin Kaepernick probably won't help mend that.

Some of the more rabid Kaepernick critics chose to start burning their own Nikes to show their anger, while others - like country musician John Rich of Big & Rich - took to Instagram to show that others are simply defacing their Nike gear in protest of the company's iconic swoosh logo.

Kaepernick was unveiled on Monday as one of the faces of a new advertising campaign from Nike, the NFL's official apparel suppliers. "People who truly love this country will not be buying your product!"

Kaepernick's protest inspired others to take part.

Nike's Facebook page has been flooded with criticism of the ad.
