Nike stock falls following Kaepernick's new deal

The quarterback has become a polarizing figure due to his protests of police brutality and social inequality during the playing of the national anthem at NFL games.

After seeing Nike's announcement that names Kaepernick the face of the "Just Do It" campaign, venture capitalist Arlan Hamilton bought a pair of Nike shoes.

Does Colin Kaepernick's new Nike ad make you want to pull out those pricey Nike sneakers and cut them to bits?

Kaepernick was a quarterback with the San Francisco 49ers for six years. "Even if it means you lose everything". "This is scummy, this is lousy, this is rotten, and I'm never buying another Nike product again and I think millions of Americans are going to agree". 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. That whole story makes the Kaepernick-Nike alliance a bit more interesting.

"I think it's a bad message and a message that shouldn't be sent", Trump said of Nike's new campaign.

Nike's decision to use Kaepernick to front theJust Do It anniversary campaign has caused fury among critics who say kneeling during the anthem disrespects the American flag.

Nike newest "Just Do It" campaign posed some problems for the brand as far as patriotism is concerned and the newest supporter of Colin Kaepernick probably won't help mend that.

The NFL made a decision to issue its own statement on social justice in wake of the 30th anniversary "Just Do It" ad campaign.

Kaepernick is now unsigned and has a pending lawsuit against the National Football League, which he accuses of blacklisting him.

Kaepernick, who watched Williams' third round win over sister Venus at Flushing Meadows, sued the National Football League in 2017 and accused owners of colluding to blackball him.

The NFL responded to the ad in a statement on Twitter, saying, "the social justice issues that Colin and other professional athletes have raised deserve our attention and action".
