    In case you missed it, Colin Kaepernick was revealed to be the face of Nike's 30th anniversary "Just Do It" campaign.

    Kaepernick, a former NFL quarterback, is well-known for his silent protesting of racial inequality and police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem.

    Since the announcement of Nike's partnership with Kaepernick, some people have decided to boycott Nike. The boycotters have even gone so far as to destroy their Nike products on social media.
