Police Organization Calls for National Nike Boycott After Kaepernick Ad


“The brand has been receiving both praise and criticism for Kaep’s new ‘Just Do It’ ad — which features the words, ‘Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything,'” according to TMZ.

Kaepernick is a polarizing figure. He is the founder behind the anthem protests and was even spotted wearing socks that depicted police officers as pigs.

Now, the National Association of Police Organizations is taking a firm stance.

“We are calling on all our member officers, their families, and friends to join in boycotting all Nike products,” they said.

The NAPO represents over 241,000 officers. Many have been highly critical of Nike for putting Kaepernick on a pedestal after his actions and words that caused hate for police across the nation.

“Oh, Nike! You are soooo brave!!” the statement says. “Holding up Colin Kaepernick as an example of someone who has ‘sacrificed everything’. Right! Come on over to Arlington National Cemetery, or to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C. or to the trauma unit of a military hospital if you want to learn the meaning of ‘sacrifice’ and why our flag means something to so many.”
