Donald Trump Jr. 'fixes' Kaepernick Nike ad with his dad's face

Colin Kaepernick

Despite the backlash in the wake of Nike's endorsement deal with Colin Kaepernick, the sportswear company has reported a 31% increase in sales.

A MI teen was a part of Nike's latest commercial featuring Colin Kaepernick.

"Nike's online sales actually grew 31% from the Sunday of Labor Day weekend through Tuesday, as compared with a 17% gain recorded for the same period of 2017", Marketwatch adds.

Colin Kaepernick's polarizing Nike ad has gotten plenty of mixed opinions, once again re-igniting the flames of the discussion around NFL players' rights to kneel during the national anthem.

The news generated plenty of online buzz, with social engagement around Nike and Kaepernick rising sharply this week, according to 4C Insights, a marketing technology company.

Nike's stock initially dropped after the ad but has since steadied, according to MarketWatch.

The 2018 National Football League season got started Thursday night with a low-scoring battle between last year's Super Bowl winners the Philadelphia Eagles and the visiting Atlanta Falcons.

Bob Woodward Stands By Reporting In Trump Book, Saying 'These Things Happened'
Woodward has been a reporter at the The Washington Post since 1971 and remains an associate editor there. But after hanging up the phone, he told his senior aide: 'We're not going to do any of that.

Nike's Kaepernick ad debuted Monday afternoon, a United States holiday, drawing immediate praise and ire from celebrities and customers alike.

Kaepernick and other prominent athletes who kneel during the anthem have repeatedly said that they do not mean any disrespect to members of the US military.

Kaepernick became more than just an American footballer when in August 2016, he began taking a knee during the playing of the national anthem, in protest of police brutality and racial injustice in the US.

"They did not tell me it was coming", Woods said.

Jelena Damjanovic asked Simon Darnell, assistant professor at the University of Toronto's Faculty of Kinesiology and Physical Education, for his take on what it all means for Kaepernick - and Nike.

"I think every athlete, every human, and definitely every African-American should be completely grateful and honored (for Kaepernick)", Williams said.
