Colin Kaepernick, the face of NFL national anthem protests, is the face of the new Nike campaign. Kaepernick started a movement by protesting during the national anthem in 2016 by kneeling–he was trying to bring light to racial and social injustice.
To protest Kaepernick’s protesting, #nikeboycott is trending on Twitter and people are threatening to burn their own Nike gear.
