Donald Trump Calls Out Nike for Colin Kaepernick Ad

Donald Trump Calls Out Nike for Colin Kaepernick Ad

Many people have been slamming the Nike company for its new ad campaign featuring former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, including the president himself - but you can count comedian Jim Carrey as a fan.

"The extensive roster of athletes and their powerful stories are core to the company's stepped-up efforts in reaching a younger demographic", Nagel wrote in a note earlier this week.

Kaepernick tweeted out a two-minute version of the Nike ad on Wednesday.

The company used a picture of Kaepernick with a quote saying 'Believe in something.Even if it means sacrificing everything.' Referring to the fact that Kaepernick hasn't played in the National Football League since 2016, when he first began kneeling during the Star Spangled Banner.

"I think it's awesome", he told The Star on Friday.

So it's no surprise that Conley had some thoughtful insight on Nike's polarizing advertisement.

The College of the Ozarks, based in Point Lookout, made a decision to cut ties with Nike just days after the Oregon-based company unveiled the new campaign featuring the controversial football player, according to The Associated Press. "It's OK to be different, it's what makes us the same - embrace it and remember that nobody's a ideal patriot, especially not me".

Falwell told USA Today that Nike's campaign alone may not be enough to cut ties.

The National Association of Police Organizations also called for a boycott of Nike over its support for the former Super Bowl participant, who has emphasized his opposition to police brutality, and the National Fraternal Order of Police condemned the campaign.

"If Nike is ashamed of America, we are ashamed of them", Davis said. A recent NBC/WSJ poll found that 54% percent of voters said kneeling during the anthem was "inappropriate", while 43% said it was an appropriate form of protest. "I just feel in the grand scheme of things, there are far bigger issues in this country, in this world".
