Edmonton's Alphonso Davies featured in Colin Kaepernick Nike ad

Nike Le Bron 16 HFR

Some responded by burning Nike gear, while others purchased more, backing the company.

Kaepernick became the face of Nike's "Just Do It" campaign after he knelt while the national anthem was played, in protest against racism. The actions had a polarising response from those who respect what Kaepernick is doing to those who claim he is disrespecting the military, including President Trump.

It's clear where Serena Williams stands in terms of Colin Kaepernick's Nike deal.

Meanwhile, Kennedy spoke with TMZ, where he revealed that he's also boycotting Nike and his friends in the Special Forces agree.

Nike has referred to Kaepernick as "one of the most inspirational athletes of this generation" and seem to be standing by their decision to feature him in the ad.

Two-time Academy Award nominee James Woods publicly dropped stock in the company and encouraged other people to do the same.

The ad campaign is largely a 30th anniversary celebration of the sports firm's famous "Just Do It" slogan, and features Kaepernick with the caption: "Believe in something".

"I grew up in OR and was around @Nike my whole life".

Another said: "I wonder what Colen Kaepernick has sacrificed for his country and people?"

Many people questioned that - since Kaepernick, after all, has lost very little since leaving the National Football League a year ago, especially when he's compared to people like the late Pat Tillman.

Carlson then asked Portnoy how Nike is helping the cause of civil rights if it's trying to sell expensive shoes to people who can't afford them.

Williams declined to answer whether she would take part in similar protests in tennis given the chance, saying: "I think everyone has a choice to do what they choose to do".

Representatives for Nike could not be immediately reached for comment on Trump's tweet.
