First Colin Kaepernick advert for Nike 'to air during National Football League opener'

Some Kaepernick critics took that to mean sacrificing their Nike products. "They wanted something that would stop the presses and stop people in their places". An ad for the company's sport hijab went viral in 2017.

"Just Blew It", posted another.

Or, at least, he was an National Football League quarterback, before his choice to kneel during the playing of Star Spangled Banner in protest of racial inequality and violence led to him becoming a polarizing force in society, never mind sports. Trump and others have frequently mischaracterized Kaepernick's protests as being against the anthem or the American flag.

It's no coincidence that Kaepernick's jerseys still are big sellers, a couple of years after his last snap. "I mean, he did lose his job and he stood for something I feel like that he wanted to stand for". "You can not do that".

Williams, who is through to her first US Open semi-final since 2016, was forced to answer questions about Nike's ad campaign after beating Karolina Pliskova at Flushing Meadow. "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".

Meanwhile, the hashtag #NikeBoycott was trending on Twitter.

In the immediate backlash against the campaign, announced on Monday, Nike shares fell almost 4 percent at one point on Tuesday and closed down 3.2 percent.

Other athletes in the campaign include tennis star Serena Williams, New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and Shaquem Griffin, a linebacker whose left hand was amputated when he was 4.

Closing his remarks, he said he stood "for anybody who believes in change". Many poked fun at the boycott, even filming satirical videos of themselves "destroying" their own Nike gear in ludicrous ways.

Christopher Svezia, a footwear and apparel analyst at Wedbush Securities Inc., said Nike shares were trading at roughly 30 times next year's forecast earnings, compared with 24 percent for rival Adidas.

Companies are often pushed to respond to negative publicity or public pressure. Martin told the news station that he called Nike "the mother of all harlots" for the campaign and criticized their use of the term "sacrificed everything".
