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.”
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.
But today Nike came with another surprising news!
Nike’s controversial Colin Kaepernick ad, which debuted Thursday night, set back the athletic shoemaker’s stock a bit but simultaneously boosted sales.
Sales increased 31 percent from Sunday through Tuesday of this week, according to research firm Edison Trends.
It seems that the boycott is not working yet but we gonna know for sure because the commercial’s effect on sales may be unveiled Sept. 25, when the company reports its quarterly results.
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!
