What did Jerry Jones say about Nike’s new ad campaign with Colin Kaepernick? | Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Two days after announcing its new endorsement deal with the former quarterback, Nike released its first ad featuring Kaepernick, who hasn't appeared in an National Football League game since 2016.

President Donald Trump took another swipe in a tweet Wednesday that claimed Nike was "getting absolutely killed with anger and boycotts". I wonder if they had any idea that it would be this way?

LeBron James is the latest professional athlete to show support for Nike following an advertising campaign that sparked controversy after linking-up with Colin Kaepernick.

Nike's decision to feature Colin Kaepernick in its newest "Just Do It" ad campaign has drawn its share of praise and detractors. "Even if it means sacrificing everything" written across the photo.

"Investors on Robinhood are buying Nike stock 300% more than they are selling, compared to 12% last week", Sahill Poddar, the app's data scientist, told Business Insider on Tuesday. "I stand with anyone who believes in change".

(AAP)LeBron James has said that he stands for 'anybody who believes in change'.

Like the electorate, there is a large pool of independents in the stock market, and at least some of them have to be won over. Shortly after, HR head Gabrielle Toledano , who'd taken a leave of absence last month, also said she wouldn't return.

Cantona posted a photograph of him wearing a Nike hoodie, with the caption "I am wearing #Nike more than ever".

"Dream Crazy", the two-minute commercial, pulls together clips of young and more accomplished athletes overcoming obstacles on and off the court.

The ad concludes with the lines, "So don't ask if your dreams are insane".

In the two-minute advert Kaepernick narrates before appearing halfway through as a reflection of a U.S. flag is visible on the facade of a building behind him. "Ask if they're insane enough". Some people even burned their sneakers to protest, so rightly or wrongly (wrongly is the correct answer), it was a controversial move.

The sports apparel giant has unveiled its first TV ad in the campaign, narrated by Kaepernick and scheduled to air during major sporting events.
