Louisiana Town Bans All Purchases Of Nike Gear After Colin Kaepernick Endorsement

Wait, are you serious?

Nike has seen sales skyrocket since the announcement of an ad campaign surrounding former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick last week, but you won’t be seeing any sales coming from a city in Louisiana.

Kenner, Lousiana mayor Ben Zahn has reportedly banned any city money from being spent on Nike products as of September 5th, according to a private memo that was sent out:

The memo comes days after the announcement from Nike, but the memo doesn’t mention Colin Kaeperick.

September 5th was also the same day Nike released it’s first commercial of the campaign that featured Kaepernick narrating.

Kaepernick has been under fire since 2016 when he first took a knee to protest racial injustice during the pre-game playing of the national anthem. He has not been signed since opting out of his contract with the 49ers in 2017, to which he has since taken the league to court to prove owners are colluding to keep him out of the league because of his stance.
