Nike selects Colin Kaepernick for ‘Just Do It’ ad campaign
Sep 04, 2018, 03:27
Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who kickstarted a protest movement against racial injustice in the U.S., is the face of a new Nike campaign to mark 30 years of the "Just Do It" slogan.
The protests during the national anthem, started by Kaepernick, embraced by other players throughout the league and criticized repeatedly by President Trump, have been a divisive issue for the league, players and fans.
If Nike wanted the maximum attention possible for its new advertising campaign, mission accomplished. Kaepernick's attorney, Mark Geragos, argues NFL owners were "clearly colluding" to keep the quarterback out of the leagues because they were "intimidated by President Donald Trump".
Not unexpectedly, the ad also also sparked more negative reactions from various folks online; all you need to do is go through Kaepernick's mentions to get a glimpse at some of those responses.
The New York Timesreported on August 30 that an arbitrator appointed by the NFL Players Association ruled Kaepernick and his legal team had unearthed enough evidence for the case to proceed to a full court hearing.
BREAKING: Nike had been paying Colin Kaepernick all along, waiting for the right moment.
