College Makes Clear Just How Much They Don't Like Nike's Kaepernick Campaign

  • Nike is ‘getting killed’ for Colin Kaepernickad, says president Trump

"You have to think beyond what you see around you", said Kaepernick, who hasn't spoken to the media publicly since opting out of his contract with San Francisco and becoming a free agent in 2017.

Not only did shares in Nike fall this week after it announced its new campaign with Kaepernick, favorability of the company also dropped by double digits and there was no boost among key demographics. He started raising his fist during the 2016 season in protest of police brutality and racial and social injustice in the United States.

Morning Consult did find 39 percent of those surveyed said they were "absolutely certain or very likely to buy Nike products" after the release of the ads, which is down 10 percent from before. The quarterback claims NFL team owners conspired to keep him out of the league because of his protests.

Trump told Fox News on Thursday night that he found the option of staying in the locker room even "worse than kneeling in a certain way". I'm not saying Nick Cannon doesn't have a philanthropic bone in his body, but I didn't expect his political zeal to manifest the way it did, incurring a complete write-off of a Los Angeles Nike Store's complete sock inventory.

"What was Nike thinking?" the president wondered on Twitter shortly before 7 a.m.

As debates over the Nike ad and National Football League players' on-field activism continue, the National Football League released a statement Tuesday night, stating: "The social justice issues that Colin and other professional athletes have raised deserve our attention and action".

'I honor the flag.
