Nike Down $4 Billion After Controversial Ad Campaign

Price Crash
This is what Anti-American posturing does to Global Corporations in the Trump Era!

Two years ago Colin Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49 quarterback, sat during the national anthem to protest for what he called “injustice”. The move sparked controversy and national protests and made Kaepernick and unemployed NFL quarterback.

Now Nike is paying Kaepernick to be the face of a new ad campaign that is causing a similar outcry and has erased $4 billion from Nike’s books. Shares in Nike opened almost 2% down on Tuesday.

The ad is causing some people to boycott the sports apparel corporation.

Sacrificing everything means different things to different people.

Some people are not taking sides.

The people that are coming out to support Kaepernick are part of a very diverse group. Former CIA head, John O. Brennan is supporting the embattled quarterback.

The former president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is even supporting Kaepernick.

If you want to boycott and burn your Nike shoes, just make sure you take them off first.

Are you going to be joining the boycott? Let us know in the comments below.
