Nike's sales surge after controversial Colin Kaepernick 'Just Do It' campaign

Donald Trump Jr is trolling Nike over its latest ad campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick. President Donald Trump’s eldest son posted

Kaepernick's deal with Nike for the 30th anniversary of the "Just Do It" campaign was the most polarizing issue in sports this week, prompting heated debate on several topics including athletes protesting social injustice and Nike wading into political waters.

"In their new ad campaign, we believe Nike executives are promoting an attitude of division and disrespect toward America", college President Jerry C. Davis said in a statement.

According to Business Insider, Robinhood's app data scientist Sahill Podar said, "Investors on Robinhood are buying Nike stock 300 percent more than they're selling, compared to 12 percent last week".

A private Christian college in Point Lookout, Mo., vowed to remove all uniforms featuring the Nike logo after the brand's ad with Colin Kaepernick was unveiled this week. Despite the backlash, Nike reported a 31-percent increase in online sales over Labor Day weekend compared to the same period previous year.

Due to his involvement in the widespread movement - which gained even more traction after Donald Trump called players who "disrespect" the United States flag "sons of bitches" and asked for them to be sacked - Kaepernick has remained a free agent since opting out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in 2017. "Investors in OR, where Nike is headquartered, are buying the stock 850 percent more than they are selling". It is scheduled to air during the NFL's season opener between the Philadelphia Eagles and Atlanta Falcons, and celebrates Kaepernick and other athletes.
