Georgia’s tiny Truett McConnell University drops Nike over ad

2018-09-14 01:35
Truett McConnell University in Georgia announced it has dropped its Nike merchandise. The school previously sold $10,000 to $20,000 per year in Nike apparel. Nike put Colin Kaepernick in ads celebrating the 30th anniversary of its “Just Do It” slogan. The university president feels Kaepernick has no respect for the American flag or the military. Others have spoken out against Nike’s hiring of Kaepernick and have started boycotting the brand. President Trump responded on Twitter. “Nike is getting absolutely killed with anger and boycotts.” “What was Nike thinking?” He also said in an interview that Nike is a tenant of his at one of his New York City properties. Experts are waiting to see the longer term financial effects of the ad campaign.
