I think some of these boycotts are just wacky.
NIKE has had several controversies over the years, from sweatshop labour, allegations of child labour, underpaying people in China, the Paradise Papers alleging tax evasion. All things that have serious consequences for real people and affect real lives…and he chooses to boycott over a football player whose only controversy is the timing of when he chooses to exercise his freedom of speech.
Children robbed of their childhoods, horrible working conditions, money possibly stolen from the American taxpayer for roads, schools and hospitals…and he’s offended over an ad that featured a person making a gesture in a disputably inappropriate time?
Welcome to America. Hurting pride is a bigger offence than theft.
