CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Donald Trump Jr. shared a doctored version of Nike's ad campaign that replaces former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick with his father.
The text on the photo remains the same, reading, "Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything."
He captioned his social media post by saying:
There, fixed it for you. #maga
Nike's original ad debuted earlier this week, sparking backlash from those who have criticized Kaepernick and other NFL players who took a knee during the national anthem to protest police brutality and social inequality.
President Trump has repeatedly blasted the NFL for initially allowing the protests. He is now taking aim at Nike.
Just like the NFL, whose ratings have gone WAY DOWN, Nike is getting absolutely killed with anger and boycotts. I wonder if they had any idea that it would be this way? As far as the NFL is concerned, I just find it hard to watch, and always will, until they stand for the FLAG!
