UFC Fighter Colby Covington Rips New NIKE Ad Featuring ‘Spineless Sack Of Shit’ Colin Kaepernick
UFC Welterweight contender Colby Covington slams new Nike ad featuring former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
A couple of days ago, Nike unveiled an add to celebrates its 30th anniversary of their “Just Do It” campaign that features a controversial former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who remains a free agent after spending six years in the sports. He gained worldwide attention after Kaepernick kneeled during the anthem in the 2016 preseason in protest of social inequality.
Kaepernick is involved in a lawsuit against the NFL and is accusing the league of colluding to keep him from playing.
Nike’s add clearly shows close up of Kaepernick’s face, and the message somehow supports the cause. Covington took note of this news, took to social media to rips Nike and a “spineless sack of sh-t” Kaepernick for the campaign, as well called for a boycott for athletic apparel.
I grew up in Oregon and was around @Nike my whole life. It’s funny watching a company that uses child slave labor overseas to make their products all of a sudden become humanitarians. #PatTillman is an NFL/American Hero. @Kaepernick7 is just a spineless sack of shit. #NikeBoycott
