Nike Commits PR Suicide
On Monday, Nike announced that Colin Kaepernick would be the new face of their “Just Do It” campaign. The now infamous Nike Meme states,
Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything.
Ugh. Ok, I can’t even with that statement.
This obviously set the internet on fire and reignited the controversy of pro/anti kneeling.
We’ve covered this topic before, so we’re not going to go into all that again. I think everyone knows how we feel about Colin HACKernick and his horrible football “career”.
Nope. Instead, we are going to bring you the amazing product of this whole mess. The internet did not disappoint once again with this meme battle. Here are the best ones so far. You’re welcome.
Nike Meme Compilation
Now here we have an actual hero and this was the first Nike meme to come out after the announcement. Obviously, Nike missed the concept of “sacrifice everything”. That’s ok. We’re here to remind you Nike.
Another favorite. This man is sacrificing his billionaire posh lifestyle to work for free and get attacked all day every day. But I digress. Moving on.
The “Ouch Ones”
This is Kaepernick’s hero after all, right?
Seems only fitting that we add him in here.
And Nike did lose $4 BILLION in ONE day after their announcement.
No wonder Colin hates capitalism so much! People can’t be forced into buying his nonsense like the dictator he strives to be.
Some of these just sting with truth!!
The “Funny Ones”
Which is your favorite Nike meme? Have one we missed? Send it on over! I have a feeling this list will keep growing.
