College of the Ozarks drops Nike over new "Just Do It" ad

U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday criticized Nike Inc for its new advertising campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick, the NFL quarterback who sparked controversy by kneeling in protest during the national anthem.

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.

She added of his activism in general: "I think everyone has a choice to do what they choose to do".

Former NFL quarterback and polarizing figure, Colin Kaepernick, posted the full, two-minute version of Nike's 30th anniversary "Just Do It" ad on Twitter Wednesday.

In the ad, Kaepernick says, "Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything".

"Cutting swooshes out of your socks is a powerful statement that says I have too many pairs of socks", Kimmel said on Tuesday night's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! "I stand for anybody that believes in a positive attitude", LeBron James said in support.


On Sept. 5, Nike unveiled a star-studded new "Dream Crazy" TV spot featuring Kaepernick, promoting the idea that "calling a dream insane isn't an insult; it's a compliment".

Prime Time Sports in the Chapel Hills Mall has a sign that reads: "Still choosing to stand / All Nike 1/2 price / "Just doing it". All I could say it's fantastic so, kudos to Nike". "Ask if they're insane enough". "I feel like they obviously have great respect from a lot of their peers, especially other athletes, people that really are looking for social change".

The ad's universal theme is about athletes pushing for bigger dreams.

Over the last two seasons, TV ratings for National Football League games have sunk, although industry analysts (and Tom Brady) believe the protest controversy is only one of many possible factors.

He has been out of a job for more than a year, but this latest ad marks a new multi-year deal with the sports apparel giant.
