Colin Kaepernick will be the face of Nike’s 30th anniversary “Just Do It” campaign, reports ESPN’s Darren Rovell.

According to Rovell, Nike has been paying Kaepernick all along and “waiting for the right moment,” which is now. Nike signed Kaepernick in 2011, but has not used him over the past two years.

“We believe Colin is one of the most inspirational athletes of this generation, who has leveraged the power of sport to help move the world forward,” Gino Fisanotti, Nike’s vice president of brand for North America, told ESPN.

Nike is the NFL’s official uniform sponsor.

Other athletes in the new campaign include Serena Williams, Odell Beckham Jr., Shaquem Griffin and LeBron James.

As you might imagine Nike choosing Colin Kaepernick as the face of this campaign has sent the Righties into a rage.

Many have threatened to boycott Nike, boycott the NFL, and most seriously, boycott access to their common sense. 

One conservative genius even decided to punish Nike by setting fire to his sneakers.

I would like to point out that those were shoes that this idiot already paid for, so I am not sure how this injures Nike in any way.

    Why don’t these fools just admit it? It is absolutely nothing to do with country, but their hatred of blacks.
    Burn everything you own, it matters not to me! Nike will be fine without you.

    My family owns some Nike stock. We’re waiting until tomorrow to see if it falls more than today’s 3%. We plan on buying more stock.

    Honest reveal: my niece works for Nike, has a say in marketing decisions. So proud of her career. But we had no idea this campaign was rolling out — very happy to see it.

      Obviously they missed the message behind it.
      I swear that “thing” in OUR White House, that he thinks is a dump, has brought out the absolute worst of our citizens.

    Gotta love these morons burning their NIKE crap, they already spent hundreds of dollars, now they have to buy more crap to replace it.

    Sounds like a winning strategy to me.

    ‘“Nike is a tenant of mine. They pay a lot of rent,” the president told The Daily Caller in an Oval Office sit-down. “As much as I disagree with the Colin Kaepernick endorsement, in another way… it is what this country is all about, that you have certain freedoms to do things that other people think you shouldn’t do, but I personally am on a different side of it.”’

      HAH! What a “nice” response from the preschooler. Just TRY going after Phil Knight, you effing coward, he’ll have you for an appetizer. He could also break that lease and feel the financial effect like one of us serfs that lost a quarter in a gum ball machine. I live in Portland, Nike headquarters in suburb Beaverton, maybe 12 miles from here, been on that campus many times for events. We all know what matters to you, POS-POTUS: $$

    If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything. That should be said to Trump and his base. They wanted so desperately to beat Hillary they lost track of their souls when Putin asked for it. Now, they in way over their collective heads.

      YOU NAILED IT!!!!

      Kaepernick is confused. As is Nike. As are all people who support his kneeling. It amounts to nothing more than hostage-taking – people pay for the sport, not for his scapegoating that they are forced to endure, it is a form of BULLYING. Ignorant tribalists buy gear, gode him on, and feel great about it. It is a sporting event where people pay to see a sport. Keep the focus and stop throwing in your kitchen sink.
      COLIN STAND FOR THE ANTHEM YOU IGNORANT PETULANT KID. Deal with the racism in other more responsible adult ways. Ignorant.

      Wasn’t it NIKE the company that M. Moore approached to move the company to Flint and hire the unemployed auto workers. The CEO said NO, it is cheaper to make them overseas.

    Gotta love the shoe burner’s over dramatic tweet. How exactly is he being forced to choose between wearing certain shoes and his country?

    NFL is not known for its’ intelligence.

    Catch a ball. Throw a ball. Collisions of 400 pound bodies. Violence. Drunks. Meatheads. And the sex-starved codependent women who want their sperm pouring out of their vaginas.

    Crazytown involves Donald Trump AKA Nike Town, built in 1996 adjacent to Trump Tower for Trump, the deal took on a significance beyond the millions Nike paid him in rent in addition to footing the full cost of demolishing the existing buildings and constructing the new flagship store.
    Some of the snootier personages of Manhattan saw the arrival of the sneaker company as proof of a social decline that had begun with the erection of gaudy Trump Tower. “Trump Tower is becoming the Coney Island of 57th Street.” “It’s a wonderful idea,” Trump was quoted saying of Nike Town. “It’s one of the great locations in the world.”
    “The word “TRUMP” over the tower entrance around the corner on Fifth Avenue increasingly clashed with those inscribed on the flagship store’s façade.

    “HONOR… VICTORY… COURAGE… TEAMWORK.”

    Late last year, Nike announced that it was quitting that site and building a new Nike Town a short stroll down Fifth Avenue, by chance across the street from {666} the building that Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner bought in one of the worst real estate deals in city history.”
