Why do you support someone who disrespects the American Flag? How many men have already died to protect his right to display this disrespect? Another example of entitlement.
Nike revealed, through ESPN’s Darren Rovell, that it is making Colin Kaepernick the face of its “Just Do It”30th-anniversary ad campaign.
In the initial advertisement, an up-close picture of Kaepernick’s face is shown with this text written over it: “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.”
Nike faced a huge boycott from the Conservatives around our country, but it seems that wasn’t enough!
Shares of Nike reached an all-time high Friday afternoon, rebounding from a recent dip spurred by concerns about consumer boycott after the athletic apparel maker signed a high-profile deal with former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
The company’s stock rose slightly on Friday, closing at $83.49. Since Nike announced the campaign on Labor Day, shares are up about 4 percent. Longer-term, Nike stock has surged 33 percent this year as Wall Street bet that the company would be able to ride out the negative publicity. Online sales of Nike gear jumped 31 percent from Sept. 2 through Sept. 4, nearly double the company’s sales during the same period a year ago, according to Edison Trends, a digital commerce research company.
Many people had thought the widespread criticism of the campaign from President Donald Trump — as well as from pundits, and police and military organizations — would hurt sales.
If Nike stand with Kaepernick than it means that they stand for people who don’t respect our country and our flag!
I am sure Nike’s latest decision will cost them a lot in a long run especially between real American patriots who appreciated Nike just because it’s a sports brand from America!
Let’s keep up the boycott!
