People Are Destroying Their Nike Gear In Response To Colin Kaepernick Ad

Kaepernick and his former teammate Eric Reid, who was also one of the first players to kneel during the anthem, have filed grievances claiming owners have colluded to keep them out of the league. A free agent, he has not been signed since the conclusion of the 2016 season.

Twitter user "Sean Clancy" said he might go buy a pair of Adidas sneakers as he posted a video of burning Nike shoes.

Rich spent last night on a splenetic Twitter rant about Kaepernick and Nike.

People who believed Kaepernick had disrespected the USA flag in his protests are now posting videos of themselves burning Nike products in response to the new ad campaign.

"The social justice issues that Colin and other professional athletes have raised deserve our attention and action". Some have accused Kaepernick and players who followed in his footsteps as disrespecting the American flag and the military.

The unveiling of the ad campaign, which is meant to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the brand's iconic "Just Do It" motto, led to a massive day on social media for Nike on Monday.

Others are saying that Nike, which raked in more than $30 billion in profits past year, would weather the protests.

"I think that Nike knows exactly what they're doing", Williams said.

Kaepernick, formerly of the San Francisco 49ers, started a wave of protests after kneeling during the national anthem in 2016 to protest racial injustice and police brutality.

"As much as I disagree with the Colin Kaepernick endorsement, in another way - I mean, I wouldn't have done it".

Many fired up sports fans and critics are taking a match to their Nike gear in protest. Rich, who Donald Trump selected as the victor of the 2011 season of "The Celebrity Apprentice, " posted a picture of the Nike swoosh that had been removed from a pair of socks.

An arbitrator denied the NFL's move to dismiss the case on Thursday. Some NFL owners have said Trump made clear to them his feelings about demonstrations during the anthem and his intention to continue to raise the issue.

Trump called Nike's campaign "a awful decision" in an interview with the Daily Caller published on Tuesday, but he also showed some respect for Kaepernick's right to speak out.

Nike also provides all National Football League teams with game day uniforms and sideline apparel, a partnership that was extended in March to run through 2028.
