Colin Kaepernick became the face of the Nike’s Just Do It campaign and rapper T.I. posts this on his social media account. He even tells his fans and followers that he might run to the store and buy a pair right now. Check out his post below.
‘Feel like Going to buy a pair right now!!! #USorELSE✊? @kaepernick7’ T.I. captioned his post.
With this latest post, Tip managed to trigger intense discussions in the comments section involving human rights, white supremacy and more.
Someone said ‘That’s exactly what Nike wants tho?? Using his movement to line their pockets at the end of the day Nike is a sponsor of the NFL so they still gonna profit off this man ??♀️? I wouldn’t buy none of it unless 60-80% of the sales go to @kaepernick7’
Another follower believes that ‘Nike didn’t say anything about the support of our struggle..they only said you have to sacrifice to gain and used his image..that message is universal.’
Someone else agreed with Tip and said ‘Absolutely @troubleman31 we most definitely need to show support!! The same way those ignorant mfs posting themselves ripping and cutting up their Nike socks and apparel.’
One commenter posted another message to touch the subject of white supremacy:
‘I never said that things were perfect and didn’t need to change. White supremacy is disgusting and find them all to be animals and stupid . It’s turned into all law enforcement is bad, and that’s just not the case. Also with the media, they spin so much. Every station says something different. I don’t think they are protesting the flag. They could pick a different time to do this. Also, I think it’s funny how they only protest or say anything during the NFL season. Why not all the time. There are always ways to get out there and share your message. I’m all for peaceful protests for anyone that’s the beauty of this country. You don’t have to agree or believe in the same thing. But also liberals get super mean and nasty when nasty when people don’t agree or support them.’
What do you think about Colin being the face of Nike’s Just Do It campaign?
