National Police Organization Calls For Nike Boycott Over Their Support Of Colin Kaepernick

Ever since Nike announced their new ad featuring Colin Kaepernick, many protesters have began burning their Nike merchandise and selling their shares, demanding others take part in a boycott.

The NFL quarterback who sparked a national controversy by kneeling during the national anthem has not only upset people, but also a National Police organization.

Via TMZ Sports:

“One of the largest police organizations in the nation is blasting Nike for the new Colin Kaepernick ad campaign … saying Swoosh’s definition of sacrifice is a slap in the face to those who risk their lives to protect the country.

TMZ Sports has obtained a statement from the National Association of Police Organizations — an interest group that represents more than 241,000 officers — about the new campaign… and they’re PISSED.

“Oh, Nike! You are soooo brave!!” the statement says. “Holding up Colin Kaepernick as an example of someone who has ‘sacrificed everything’. Right!”

“Come on over to Arlington National Cemetery, or to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C. or to the trauma unit of a military hospital if you want to learn the meaning of ‘sacrifice’ and why our flag means something to so many.”

After a few hours, the organization took it a step furthur by calling for a complete boycott of Nike and all their products:

“The National Association of Police Organizations has fired off a letter to Nike chairman and CEO Mark Parker, saying the org. is now calling for a boycott of all Nike products.

“In featuring Mr. Kaepernick in the ‘Just Do It’ campaign, Nike grossly insults the men and women who really do make sacrifices for the sake of our nation,” the letter obtained by TMZ Sports reads.

“We are calling on all our member officers, their families and friends to join in boycotting all Nike products.”
