Donald Trump supporters are protesting against Nike and it’s the best self-own you’ll see this week
Donald Trump supporters aren’t happy with Nike after the sportswear giant unveiled American footballer Colin Kaepernick as the face of its new campaign.
Kaepernick, you might remember, is the NFL player who began kneeling during the national anthem in protest against racism in the US which Trump was really, really unhappy about.
Here’s the ad.

First the @NFL forces me to choose between my favorite sport and my country. I chose country. Then @Nike forces me to choose between my favorite shoes and my country. Since when did the American Flag and the National Anthem become offensive? pic.twitter.com/4CVQdTHUH4

The same people saying liberals get offended too easily are literally destroying their wardrobes and cutting the clothes off of their body because a black athlete appeared in one advertisement. pic.twitter.com/ljQWhHmRn1
