On Monday, Nike unveiled their new campaign, featuring Colin Kaepernick ,the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback who started the practice of kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial injustice.
This practice has been criticized and warped by many conservatives, including Donald Trump, stating that his reason for kneeling is to disrespect the American flag, when it was only trying to highlight police brutality against people of color.
Here is the ad:

Shortly after, Twitter exploded with Nike boycotts from right winged extremists such as this man child, who probably looked up the national anthem on Spotify for the first time in his life, and played it on his shitty speakers while he burned $400 worth of….shoes.

Soon after, Twitter began roasting these dudes for their idiotic protests. Here are some of the funniest reactions we found:

If you ‘re burning your Nike shit to make a statement, just know that statement is “I think cops killing unarmed black people is fine. ‘

OR you all could just donate your unwanted Nike clothes (that you ‘ve already paid for, and they ‘ve already profited off of ) to our fellow vets that are homeless since you ‘re so pressed https://t.co/uWHDOyxg0K

The cast of “You Again” (Kristen Bell, Betty White, Sigourney Weaver, Odette Yustman) sit down for an interview and it turns ugly, quickly.
