Nike has kept Colin’s sponsorship despite the fact that he has not played a game in the NFL since 2016.
The campaign picture features a pic of Colin with the statement, “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.”
Colin recently had a big win after a judge said that his case against the NFL colluding to keep him out because of his anthem stance could move forward.
Of course there were plenty of public back lash towards NIKE.
First the @NFL forces me to choose between my favorite sport and my country. I chose country. Then @Nike forces me to choose between my favorite shoes and my country. Since when did the American Flag and the National Anthem become offensive? pic.twitter.com/4CVQdTHUH4
