One day after making Colin Kaepernick one of the faces of their 30th anniversary "Just Do It" campaign, Nike has released a short film that honestly might give you the chills.
Speaking from the BMW Championship, Woods says Nike is "trying to get out ahead" and "do something special".
"It's a attractive spot", he said after the second round of the BMW Championship on Friday, via ESPN. Before the announcement, 49 percent of Americans said they were absolutely certain or very likely to buy Nike products. "It's a attractive spot and pretty powerful people (are) in the spot".
Nike has unveiled its first "Just Do It" ad narrated by Colin Kaepernick, a spot scheduled to air during the National Football League season opener on Thursday night as well as during the U.S. Open tennis tournament and other major sporting events.
And while the #boycottnike hashtag has received about 204,000 Twitter engagements since Monday, the #justdoit hashtag has more than five times the engagements during the same time frame - indicating that while the ad has drawn Nike more scorn, it's also galvanized its supporters.
Rapper Post Malone’s Rolls Royce crashes in West Hollywood
Post Malone had been in the NY area on Monday for the MTV Video Music Awards, where he won the song of the year prize. The FAA later told Fox News the plane has been diverted to Stewart Airport, located north of New York City.
Kaepernick, a former quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, has been a polarizing figure since becoming the first NFL player to stage protests of racial injustice during pregame renditions of the national anthem.
Kaepernick says: "Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything". "If Nike is ashamed of America, we are ashamed of them".
They have been among the most vocal protesters since Kaepernick began similar demonstrations in 2016 by kneeling during the anthem.
Companies "have made millions off of following trends from the black community, and so they have to be cognizant of the feelings of that community", said Antonio S. Williams, who teaches sports marketing at Indiana University.
Nike also will create an apparel line for Kaepernick, including a signature shoe, and contribute to his Know Your Rights charity, the person said.

"What was Nike thinking?"

"If I was in the NFL I would be kneeling still", said another resident Peyton Warren. The NFL should have taken a bold stand on this, but they fumbled it badly and now Nike is piling on.
