Nike is making Colin Kaepernick the face of its iconic "Just Do It" campaign and people have feelings about. The sneaker giant is facing some backlash from people who do not support Kaepernick kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial injustice; some folks on Twitter to lit their shoes on fire and called for a boycott. Others support the brand taking a stand against police brutality and have pledged their loyalty, and dollars, to the company. What do you think? 👟

Nike made controversial figure Colin Kaepernick its poster boy for the "Just Do It" campaign. Are you going to boycott the brand?

How can Nike give money to such a polarizing figure? Colin Kaepernick started protests during the national anthem, where people are supposed to be honoring our flag and troops. 

Nike has obviously prioritized being edgy rather than the respect of the country that has allowed, and empowered, the company to become an iconic sneaker producer with over $36 billion in revenue. People shouldn't buy anything from a brand that does not respect the flag or our troops.

Finally! Corporate America gets it! 

Nike is doing the right thing by backing Kaepernick. His protest against police brutality and racial injustice has brought issues to light and he needs to be supported. Everyone wants to be on the right side of history and Nike wants people with a conscience wearing its gear. This company deserves to be embraced for taking a stand on social issues, not boycotted.
