College drops Nike uniforms to protest Kaepernick ad

Unsurprisingly President Trump weighed in as well, saying Nike was effectively sending a "terrible message" by endorsing an "unpatriotic voice", the company alternately feel they are positioning themselves on the right side of history in breaking their silence. If you were seeking anger over the union of the shoe giant and Colin Kaepernick, the Internet provided a seemingly inexhaustible buffet of offerings the past several days. To celebrate that rich diversity, the second film in the JDI series, "Dream Crazy", focuses on a collection of stories that represent athletes who are household names and those who should be.

Colin Kaepernick featured in a black and white image with "Believe in something".

Although some of the exposure was negative, the brand was still being advertised. I don't think it's appropriate what they did, ' Trump said in a Fox News interview before the rally.

The university, which is affiliated with the Georgia Baptist Convention, is willing to reconsider its ban - but only if Nike makes serious concessions.

Donald Trump Jr. has posted a response to Nike's controversial new ad featuring Colin Kaepernick.

"These results show once again that oftentimes, social media backlash can be amplified by media attention while representing only a small minority of haters", said Ace Metrix CEO Peter Daboll, said in a statement. Still, the ad has worked when it comes to getting people to talk about Nike, with the company seeing a rapid 1,678 percent increase in Twitter engagement. Davis, echoing the sentiments of many police officers and service members, said Kaepernick is not an accurate depiction of someone who has sacrificed.

The College of the Ozarks said it would "choose its country over company" by terminating its Nike sponsorship deal and removing all Nike-branded athletic equipment or uniforms, according to a report by Kansas City ABC affiliate KMBC.

Bob Dorfman, a sports marketing executive at Baker Street Advertising, told Bloomberg that Nike did not take any financial risk making Kaepernick the face of the campaign.

Nike's use of Kaepernick has led to calls for boycotts by some customers.
