Nike Picks Kaepernick for New ‘Just Do It’ Campaign — America Responds Loudly

By

Nike stunned America over the weekend by selecting former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick as the fact of its new “Just Do It” 30th anniversary ad campaign.

Yeah, the player that started the horrific “kneeling” during the anthem.

ESPN’s Darren Rovell released the first promotional image of the campaign.

The caption stated: Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.”

Kaepernick is arguably the most controversial sports figure in America. He was the first NFL player to take a knee in protest during the national anthem, sparking an ongoing protest that has divided Americans.

America was not shy in responding to Nike’s decision.

Country music star John Rich, of Big and Rich, took a stand in support of police officers.

“I support every American’s right to protest whatever they want. However, if you endorse someone who wears #PIGSOCKS that’s where you lose me,” he tweeted. “If @nike wants their ‘swoosh’ to be associated with calling our police ‘Pigs’ then so be it. I have a right to not buy their products.”

Rich’s sound guy went even further.
