Over the weekend, Nike announced former NFL player Colin Kaepernick as the face of the company’s 30th Anniversary of the “Just Do It” campaign. In the ad, Colin is looking at the camera, and printed over the image is: “Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything #JustDoIt.” 

After the announcement, social media quickly responded. Some extremely happy and in favor of the company’s bold move, while others decided to burn, cut, and destroy anything they owned with Nike on it.

The campaign will also feature athletes such as Serena Williams, NFL wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., and Shaquille Griffin, a rookie linebacker for the Seattle Seahawks whose left hand was amputated when he was a child.
