Trump tweets Nike getting 'killed' by Kaepernick ad

"Even if it means sacrificing everything" written across the photo. Some responded by burning Nike gear, while others purchased more, backing the company.

He began kneeling during The National Anthem before NFL games as a silent protest against what he suggests is an ongoing oppression against people of color.

Former NFL quarterback and polarizing figure, Colin Kaepernick, posted the full, two-minute version of Nike's 30th anniversary "Just Do It" ad on Twitter Wednesday.

Williams, who is through to her first US Open semi-final since 2016, was forced to answer questions about Nike's ad campaign after beating Karolina Pliskova at Flushing Meadow.

In May, Eric Reid also filed a collusion grievance against the National Football League regarding his employment status.

In the ad, Kaepernick speaks about the idea of people accomplishing dreams that would appear to be impossible as footage of athletes training and practicing is shown.

Williams has performed wonders already by reaching the Wimbledon final , less than 11 months after the birth of her daughter Alexis Olympia.

Newton said last season he thought the way Kaepernick has been treated was, "unfair", and when asked his thoughts on the new Nike campaign, Newton doubled down in his support.

The Nike campaign has produced an enormous amount of debate on social media. 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.

But the sports apparel giant has stood firm on its choice of Kaepernick, describing him as one of the most inspiring athletes of his generation.

Carlson then asked Portnoy how Nike is helping the cause of civil rights if it's trying to sell expensive shoes to people who can't afford them. "And I think that's also something that's really interesting, is the fact that we all make up this world, because we have different views and different views on different views things, but that doesn't mean we can't be loving toward each other".

Stephen Martin, the owner of Prime Time Sports, said he knows he is jeopardizing his business, as a large part of his inventory is Nike NFL jerseys, according to KRDO.
