Colin Kaepernick succeeds in getting Nike to pull a sneaker featuring an early American flag

Hey, we’re just days away from celebrating Independence Day, so how about a post on Nike deciding to yank a sneaker with an American flag on it so as not to offend Colin Kaepernick and crew?


According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, Nike is dropping the shoe, which features the “Betsy Ross flag”:

Nike Inc. is yanking a U.S.A.-themed sneaker featuring an early American flag after former NFL star-turned-activist Colin Kaepernick told the company it shouldn’t sell a shoe with a symbol that he and others consider offensive, according to people familiar with the matter.

The sneaker giant created the Air Max 1 USA in celebration of the July Fourth holiday, and it was slated to go on sale this week.

We’re not sure what sort of deal Kaepernick has with Nike, but they did run that ad with his last fall about “sacrificing everything.”

When we think of a football player sacrificing everything, we tend to picture Pat Tillman, but that’s probably just because we’re racist. Now Nike gets to sacrifice a whole lot of shoes that were supposed to go on sale so they can stay woke.




Whoa, this just sailed through our Twitter feed and we certainly hope Kaepernick doesn’t see it.
