Americans Respond With Literal Fire And Fury To Kaepernick’s Nike Gig

Virginia Kruta Associate Editor

Americans were quick to respond when Nike announced the new face of their next ad campaign: embattled former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Shoes were set on fire and even microwaved in viral videos shared on Twitter after the endorsement went public.


Kaepernick, who has not been signed to a team for the last two seasons, is now appearing on Nike ads along with the phrase, “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.”

Conservative radio host and NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch took a different approach, instead flipping Nike’s slogan to remind Americans that there were some who truly have sacrificed everything for what they believed in.
