Tiger Woods calls Nike Kaepernick ad a 'beautiful spot'

Some fans responded to Kaepernick's sponsorship deal by cutting or burning gear with Nike's signature swoosh logo.

According to Edison Trends, an e-commerce research firm, Nike's online sales soared 31 percent following labor day weekend.

"There was speculation that the /Kaepernick campaign would lead to a drop in sales, but our data over the last week does not support that theory", Hetal Pandya, co-founder of Edison Trends, MarketWatch.

Apex Marketing Group estimated that the Kaepernick ad had a $163 million payoff in media exposure.

Woods said he was not made aware that the ad was coming out before it was announced earlier this week.

The controversial Kaepernick Nike ad aired Thursday during the kickoff game for the 2018 season, and will air during other games for the rest of the season. Kaepernick himself unveiled the partnership Monday on twitter with a caption that read "Believe in something". "If Nike is ashamed of America, we are ashamed of them".

"In another way, it is what this country is all about, that you have certain freedoms to do things that other people think you shouldn't do, but I personally am on a different side of it".
