Liberty University Considers Dropping Nike over Kaepernick Ad

"I don't think it's appropriate what they did", Trump said in an interview with Fox News before a rally in Montana. "It's a attractive spot and pretty powerful people (are) in the spot".

Nike this week unveiled an endorsement deal with Kaepernick, who also narrates the new ad celebrating the 30th anniversary of the company's "Just Do It" slogan.

The three, who took similar action during the preseason, continued the protests of police shootings of black men and other social injustices faced by African-Americans started two years ago by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

The two-minute ad, which debuted during the NFL opener, highlights superstar athletes LeBron James, Serena Williams and others, and touches on the controversy of NFL player protests during the national anthem. President Donald Trump tweeted this week about the athletic gear's partnership with Kaepernick. According to the report, following a brief decline, the shoe giant's online sales grew 31 per cent which was substantially better than 2017's 17 per cent increase during that same time period.

Joining them were family and friends as well as members of McCain's Class of 1958 and military leaders. If you forgive, people appreciate it, and if you admit to mistakes, you look good as a stronger man.

Many people have been taking to social media to rip apart Carrey's celebratory artwork, as well as Nike's deal with Kaepernick. The surge was better than the 17 percent increase recorded past year during the same period, the report stated. Many people oppose Kaepernick's refusal last season to stand during the national anthem before games. Earlier this year Kaepernick filed a collusion grievance against the NFL, alleging that the league's owners conspired to keep him out of the league due to his anthem protests.

'There was speculation that Nike's Colin Kaepernick ad campaign could lead to a drop in sales.

But Woods, though he has been a Nike-sponsored athlete since turning professional in 1996, does not appear in the advert. I don't think it's appropriate.

Kaepernick and other prominent athletes who kneel during the anthem have repeatedly said that they do not mean any disrespect to members of the USA military. Which is exactly what Kaepernick and Nike are doing right now.
