LeBron James says in Kaepernick reference: I stand with Nike

Nike Customers Are Burning Their Clothes Due To Kaepernick Decision

"Believe in something", the Nike advertisement read.

Colin has got tongues wagging over the last two years by kneeling during the American national anthem in protest against racial injustice.

"I stand with Nike, all day, every day", James said according to Jocelyn Novek of The Associated Press. Others, from a former Central Intelligence Agency director to tennis star Serena Williams and shoe-buying football fans, pledged their support for Nike and Kaepernick.

Reports from Yahoo and CBS Sports said Nike is expected to release a new line of Kaepernick-related apparel soon, but the image posted to social media was enough to prompt some to call for a boycott of the company.

Trump addressed Nike and the National Football League on twitter this morning with the following, "Just like the National Football League, whose ratings have gone WAY DOWN, Nike is getting absolutely killed with anger and boycotts".

"Just bought a pair of nikes yesterday not knowing about this, but NOW I will be returning them!"

"As much as I disagree with the Colin Kaepernick endorsement, in another way, I mean, I wouldn't have done it", Trump said.

The score of supports who are vocally standing behind Nike and Kaepernick's politically charged team-up also includes Kobe Bryant, Russell Crowe, House of Cards star Michael Kelly, Common, and many others. "[Nike is] picking a side, and I don't think that's going to negatively affect them in the long run", Morris said.

On Monday, Williams, 36, tweeted a Nike ad of a young girl playing tennis that read, "It's only a insane dream until you do it". "So, I do have a lot of respect for that". But during that other 5 percent, his shamelessness - and utter dearth of impulse control - renders him the most disarmingly (and self-destructively) honest public figure in modern memory. "And I think that's also something that's really interesting, is the fact that we all make up this world, because we have different views and different views on different views things, but that doesn't mean we can't be loving toward each other".
