The Internet Is Going HAM With These Colin Kaepernick Nike Memes
Since releasing an ad featuring Colin Kaepernick, Nike has gotten a lot of heat and the internet is memeing about it
Last week, Nike began rolling out ads featuring athletes who have overcome obstacles to get to where they are today. Some athletes featured in the campaign include LeBron James, Serena Williams, Odell Beckham Jr., Lacey Baker, and former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. A lot of people have become upset that Nike featured Kaepernick, so they took to the burning Nike products around the world in protest of the athletic apparel brand. While the full video ad was released later that week (see below) the internet started generating hilarious memes in response to the original print ad that made people wage war against Nike.
These memes included everyone from The Dude from The Big Lebowski, to Thanos from Avengers: Infinity War, President Donald Trump, and even a few memes featuring our favorite stars from The Office.
