Missouri college plans to strip athletes of Nike branding over Kaepernick controversy

Narrated by Colin Kaepernick, "Dream Crazy" provides encouragement to everyone who has insane dreams and goals that may seem unsurmountable.

DONALD TRUMP has slammed Nike for featuring Colin Kaepernick in its Just Do It 30th anniversary campaign. But with Twitter getting literally lit up with video of people burning their Nike gear, "Just Do It"-mocking memes trending online, and Trump having a blast watching it all from afar, you start to wonder if this is what Nike had in mind".

Trump has criticized Kaepernick since the campaign trail, and continues to rail against NFL players who protest during the national anthem.

In the ad, Kaepernick provides narration as various professional and amateur athletes train.

Trump, who has frequently criticized the protests by NFL players and the league's handling of them, said Tuesday that Nike's use of Kaepernick sends "a awful message".

Kaepernick is now in litigation against the NFL, claiming that team owners colluded to keep him out of the league.

Kaepernick and other prominent athletes who kneel during the anthem have repeatedly said that they do not mean any disrespect to members of the US military.

"In their new ad campaign, we believe Nike executives are promoting an attitude of division and disrespect toward America", college President Jerry C. Davis said in a statement.

Nike's ad, which was tweeted by Kaepernick on Wednesday, features the likes of LeBron James and Serena Williams as Kaepernick narrates.

"I don't like what Nike did".

It's the ad seen around the world. Personally, I do not endorse Kaepernick's method of protest but I absolutely support his right to do so.

"As far as the National Football League is concerned, I just find it hard to watch, and always will, until they stand for the FLAG!" he said.

The league and players union still haven't resolved whether players will be punished this season if they choose to kneel or demonstrate during the anthem. I don't think it's appropriate what they did.
