Yes, people were literally burning their Nike shoes and saying they'd never buy a Nike product ever again.. Not because Nike did or said something racist or insulting or sexist, but because they dared feature Colin Kapernick's face, a peaceful protester, in an ad campaign.This, THIS, confirms you're trolling. Here is the conservative Fuhrer on social media:
December 2012: Trump calls for the firing of Vanity Fair magazine Editor Graydon Carter, with whom he had feuded for years, over what he declares the magazine's "worst ever issue."
December 2012: Trump says "Scots should boycott Glenfiddich garbage" because the whisky brand selected Michael Forbes, a farmer who refused to sell his land to make way for a Trump golf course, as "Top Scot" of the year.
March 2013: Trump says, "Everyone should cancel HBO until they fire low life dummy Bill Maher! Get going now and feel good about yourself!"
July 2013: Trump asks people to "boycott & cancel subscriptions" to Rolling Stone magazine because of a cover featuring Boston Marathon terrorist Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
October 2013: Trump urges "everybody possible" to "cancel their subscription" to New York Magazine over an insulting tweet about Trump's marriage from Dan Amira, who was online editor at the time.
March 2014: After Trump is left off a CNBC list of the most influential business leaders, he says, "Stupid poll should be canceled—no credibility."
May 2014: Trump calls for the firing of, or at least an apology from, the person at The Oklahoman newspaper who wrote a headline calling then-Oklahoma City Thunder NBA star Kevin Durant "Mr. Unreliable." (The newspaper had already apologized.)
Before you go "Lolololol CNN, LIBERAL!" they link to Agolf Twitlers tweets DIRECTLY. They are HIS WORDS. The brilliant thing is that this is only a small portion of that article. Also, remember the mass campaign on Twitter to cancel Nike? Jesus fucking Christ you're a lost cause.
The inflammatory words that had people boycotting Nike and burning shoes?
"Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything".
I mean, come on. The hypocrisy is beyond stunning. And they wonder why people are protesting now.
