Rep. Sean Duffy speaks out against Nike ad

Rep. Sean Duffy speaks out against Nike ad

Nike has grown in popularity among millennial investors after releasing its controversial Colin Kaepernick ad.

For those of you who may not remember, Kaepernick played for San Francisco before he took a knee protesting police brutality during the national anthem. Shares of the company were up less than one percent in midmorning trade on Wednesday; the stock had dropped almost 4 percent at one point on Tuesday.

Martin told the news station that he called Nike "the mother of all harlots" for the campaign and criticized their use of the term "sacrificed everything". Among Democrats, the company's net favorability fell by 9 points and they are 5 percent less likely to purchase Nike products. Boldness has always been part of the brand. So, right now I'm boycotting Nike. "This is what they love to do".

College of the Ozarks has made its views regarding patriotism clear.

"I am sponsored by Nike", Funchess said. A 30-second version will also include Kaepernick. The campaign will also feature athletes such as Serena Williams, NFL wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., and Shaquem Griffin, a rookie linebacker for the Seattle Seahawks whose left hand was amputated when he was a child.

As his narration continues, telling people not to settle for being ordinary, Colin returns on screen at the end of the video saying, "So don't ask if your dreams are insane, ask if they're insane enough".

The version posted to Twitter touches on the protests.

As fans were getting hyped for the upcoming season, Nike brought back controversy with a new campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick.

The private Christian school located south of Branson, Missouri, said Wednesday that it would be dropping its affiliation with Nike over the Kaepernick "Just Do It" ad campaign.

The quarterback claims NFL team owners conspired to keep him out of the league because of his protests.

College of the Ozarks announced last fall that all of its coaches and players would be required to stand for the national anthem before events. An NFL request to dismiss the case was denied last month, meaning there is sufficient evidence for it to go to an arbitrator.
