Nike has received notable backlash after releasing a new advertisement featuring Colin Kaepernick as one of their spokesman for the iconic brand. In a rollout of several new photo ad’s featuring athletes from Serena Williams all the way to Nyjah Huston, the one they used featuring the former 49ers quarterback is receiving heavy criticism due to his lead in the practice of taking a knee during the national anthem.
The right-wing conservatives mainly are the ones taking note to these ad’s featuring Kaepernick, but Nike has not met their requests for discontinuing the sponsorship. Instead, they have release a brand new full feature commercial, using Kaepernick as the voice over and featured star at the end.
