Trump says Nike is getting "absolutely killed" after Kaepernick ad

LeBron James

Apropros, since all the controversy began when Colin Kaepernick, former quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, sat down during the playing national anthem.

The advert, titled "Dream Crazy", has Kaepernick narrating over images and footage of various athletes with inspirational stories, including National Basketball Association icon LeBron James, tennis star Serena Williams and Kenyan runner Eliud Kipchoge. "All of the men and women in law enforcement believe in something and are prepared to sacrifice everything".

The younger Trump replicated Nike's ad nearly to a T - the words that appeared across Kaepernick's face in the black and white photo were now over President Trump's: "Believe in something".

After taking a somewhat reasoned approach on Nike's endorsement deal with Kaepernick, President Donald Trump was back to casting Twitter insults on Thursday. "I guarantee they could get more from a smile on a child's face than a symbolic burning of a pair of shoes".

The ad campaign is largely a 30th anniversary celebration of the sports firm's famous "Just Do It" slogan, and features Kaepernick with the caption: "Believe in something".

Wilson, who has a contract with Nike, also applauded the company's deal with Kaepernick.

Nike said a 90-second version of the ad will air mostly on TV.

On Monday, Williams, 36, tweeted a Nike ad of a young girl playing tennis that read, "It's only a insane dream until you do it".

"That NAPO has chosen this matter to take a stance, only perpetuates the narrative that police are racist, with no regard, acknowledgment, respect, or understanding of the issues and concerns of the African American community", she said.

Rosenstein also said he didn't expect the ad to make or break a viewer's decision to tune in this fall. Many people have shared photos of their destroyed Nike products as part of an effort to boycott the company.
