The largest sports brand in the world, Nike, announced that former 49’s quarterback Colin Kaepernick is the new face of their 30th Anniversary of the “Just Do It” campaign.

The announcement came during the Labor Day holiday with the Swoosh company and the football activist, dropping a black and white photo with the slogan “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.” While many celebrated the collab for both Nike and the former quarterback, the right-wingers went H.A.M. and started the #NikeBoycott hashtag on Twitter.

While Kaepernick has made it known that his protest against the National Anthem is in response to police brutality, those who don’t support the baller took their MAGA remarks to Twitter and it even resulted in the Nike brand dropping 3 percent in stock.

According to social media, many are burning and cutting up their old Nike gear in protest as well.
