Texans' Justin Reid: I support Colin Kaepernick, I support my brother

What did Jerry Jones say about Nike’s new ad campaign with Colin Kaepernick? | Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Kaepernick tweeted a photo from the ad with the caption "Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything", and it has since sparked outrage stemming from Kaepernick's controversial role in ongoing NFL player protests during the national anthem.

The president's son posted his own version of the ad on Instagram Wednesday with the comment, "There, fixed it for you".

Other celebrities have also expressed their support for Kaepernick, either by retweeting the ad or sharing the #ImWithKap, #JustDoIt and #TeamNike hashtags.

Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, unveiled his first ad of the new campaign Monday.

For what it's worth, I occasionally look around the stands during the national anthem and am annoyed when I see guys who don't take their hats off, which I suspect is nearly always about laziness and ignorance, not a protest of anything. "By pursuing this approach, Nike is back in the public conversation - and, yes, they'll create some enemies (that's for sure) but they'll also reactivate their core base - and create true believers". "I have said that since Day 1".

"I think it's a bad message and a message that shouldn't be sent", Trump said, though he acknowledged Nike's right to decide its own marketing strategy.

Kaepernick was the first in a series of National Football League (NFL) stars to kneel during the USA national anthem before matches.

The ban eventually helped Jordan and Nike, resulting in a billion-dollar partnership as the Air Jordan shoe became one of Nike's most successful items and Jordan became one of the most successful endorsement and promotion properties ever.

"If people say your dreams are insane, if they laugh at what you think you can do".

But Nike's ad "wades into different water", Grier said.

Kaepernick is suing the NFL, saying its owners conspired to keep him out of the league because of his protests that spread to teams nationwide. Rovell tweeted Tuesday that the National Football League did not respond to a request for comment on Nike's decision.

Colin Kaepernick just tweeted a powerful full-length advertisement for Nike.

But to one fellow member of the pro-quarterback fraternity, an athlete's sacrifice - even one that could mean no longer being a professional athlete - doesn't compare to some more real-world examples. "I stand for anybody that believes in a positive attitude", LeBron James said in support. The point of the topic is police brutality and that type of thing.

"Nike's campaign will generate both attention and discussion which is, arguably, one of its central aims", he said.

Newton said Kaepernick has his respect.
