Earlier today, the sneaker company Nike made headlines when they announced their promotion of disgraced quarterback Colin Kaepernick to the face of the company.
Kaepernick, who last played in the NFL in 2016, is famous for instigating the national anthem protest, where players take a knee during the song. The protests caused a lot of controversy and NFL owners have created rules this season to tackle the issue.
After Nike’s announcement, many took to Twitter and other social media outlets to voice their displeasure. Watch this video that went viral, which shows a Jewish boy throwing his Nike sneakers into a burning fire to protest the new campaign.
