Serena Williams: Nike made 'powerful statement' with Colin Kaepernick

Nike Customers Are Burning Their Clothes Due To Kaepernick Decision

Nike shares drop amid calls for a boycott after Colin Kaepernick deal

Kaepernick on Monday posted a photo to his Instagram and Twitter accounts featuring a black-and-white close-up of his face overlaid with an inspirational message: "Believe in Something".

Colin has got tongues wagging over the last two years by kneeling during the American national anthem in protest against racial injustice.

In short, Trump says the ad sends "a bad message".

Thiago understands and knows me.after a defeat we don't talk about it, he knows not to talk about it. 'The one who has really surprised me is Arthur, ' he said. "Here I have everything".

President Donald Trump has been persistently critical of National Football League players protesting during the anthem, a movement Kaepernick started. I would love to see how they would protest Home Depot: 'The walls in my house must go!' And also, I'm not going to lie, those flaming Nikes makes me nearly want to pay more.

Protesters burned Nike shoes and some consumers demanded a boycott after the footwear and apparel maker's unveiling of Kaepernick, while the company's shares fell on Tuesday, closing down 3.2 per cent. "I think it's a awful message that they're sending and the goal of them doing it - maybe there's a reason for them doing it". "Colin Kaepernick has done that and I think that we need to follow his example and really go where the heart leads, instead of where everybody expects you to go".

Unsurprisingly, given the mixed reaction to Kaepernick's protest, Nike's decision has prompted strong views of support from certain quarters and condemnation from others.

"As much as I disagree with the Colin Kaepernick endorsement, in another way, I mean, I wouldn't have done it", Trump said.

Near the end of his remarks, James, who also has a contract with Nike, said he supports "anybody who believes in change". In fact, sources told ESPN's Darren Rovell that none of the organizations Nike makes apparel for were privy to the Kaepernick ad before it was unveiled.

Williams declined to answer whether she would take part in similar protests in tennis given the chance, saying: "I think everyone has a choice to do what they choose to do".
