Kaepernick Stabs Nike in the Back Days After They Award Him With Major Deal

Failed NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is already stiffing Nike, just days after inking a major deal that will net him millions of dollars.

Nike sparked controversy after the company selected Kaepernick to be the face of its new “Just Do It” campaign. As part of the lucrative deal, Nike reportedly committed to creating Kaepernick’s own clothing line.

“The source says Nike will feature Kaepernick on several platforms, including billboards, television commercials and online ads. Nike also will create an apparel line for Kaepernick and contribute to his Know Your Rights charity,” CBS San Francisco reported.

So Nike might be frustrated to know Kaepernick is selling his own jerseys — and they aren’t Nike brand.

“Colin Kaepernick selling jerseys on his website for $175, 20% of proceeds going to @yourrightscamp. Not made by Nike,” ESPN’s Darren Rovell tweeted.

After the controversy came to light, Kaepernick promised that 100 percent of the profits would go to his charity.

“Thank you 2 each & every 1 of you that supported this journey,” he tweeted. “The Official Limited Edition #IMWITHKAP jersey released today instantly sold out! ALL PROFITS will go 2 support @yourrightscamp! Sign up 4 our newsletter at http://Kaepernick7.com  & be the first 2 know what’s next!”

Regardless, none of the profits will be shared with his new business partner, Nike.

Even though Kaepernick once said he refused to respect or stand for this country, he certainly appears to be enjoying the benefits of capitalism.

    Kaperdick hates America and all it stands for. He’s a radical Muslim basshole. No more NFL for me again this year. I’m to the point now where it doesn’t even exist in my thinking on Sundays.

      So happy NIKE stocks have SPIKED! WHOOP! lol Oh yeah. Keep up the good work COLIN! And for all you haters, you were Wrong about Barry Bonds and YOU are Wrong about Colin Kaepernick. These men are TRUE HERO’s AND we’re talking about THEM, they don’t even know who we are and when it comes to going down in history, they will be remembered for doing THE right thing. SUING THE MAN and WINNING for trying to take a man down for being different than a WASP!
      Black Lives DO Matter even if a right winger doesn’t believe it.
      ALL HATE IS SELF HATE. Remember what you sow you reap.

        Sure black lives matter, but more to we WHITE people than to black people.
        Black people want to murder their babies and each other . And black people keep voting for candidates, such as Hilary and DemonRATs that openly HATE black people. Remember what President Lyndon Johnson said about n—–?
        Hilary idolized Margaret Sanger who started Planned Parenthood who openly stated it was to eliminate the black race, and Hilary’s mentors were Senators Willian Fulbright and KKK leader Robert Byrd who were extreme racists.

          we would be here 2 centuries counting up GOP leaning racist so we don’t have to do the comparisons the common denominator is that they are all white, so what’s your point? If black lives don’t matter to us as you say then I guess blacks have assimilated their white oppressor well, we had 400 years to learn nothing but hate, and cruelty, and killing , terrorizing, brutality, rape of women and children, thievery of people who are black , imagine what that does to the psyche to be taught your color is worthy of nothing but cruelty and death , take your white hands and pat yourselves on the back tour great great grand pappies taught you well how to keep up the family business !

            Take your black azz back to Africa where your kin have been murdering and enslaving each other for millenniums. You can take the Afrikkan out of the jungle, but you can’t take the jungle out of the Afrikkan as witnessed in all metropolises in the US. 13% of the population committing over 50% of the violent crime in America. Your violence is rooted in your ancestral ways.

    What a bunch of crap!! Must be some ‘rich’ people out there buying his crap — let’s see an audit on that charity stuff — he started at 20% and now is at 100? Hmmm Well, I wouldn’t buy that garbage under any circumstances!!

    • diane

      September 13, 2018 at 11:28 pm

      No, he said 100% of “profits” will go to his charity. If that means only 20% of the $175 price tag goes to the charity, he’s claiming it costs $140 to make and sell each jersey. I call BS on that. He’s pocketing a bunch.

    That guy is crazy. His mouth has gotten him to trouble again. Nike has a legal contract with this a hole. They need to sue this person. He doesn’t respect nike, good,but the law is the law. They can issue a cease and dissis order about his jersies. Thats what nike gets for dealing with this asshole.

    Well Nike got what they deserved!!!! Backed an American hater! I guess now they will realize who WERE THE NIKE SUPPORTERS, and it wasn’t Kapernik! They turned their backs on a huge lover of Nike products, the American people. Sorry Nike, you goofed, BIG time. Won’t be another pair on my feet! Americans love our country, our anthem, our flag, and more our military. We stand out of respect for the ones who no longer stand or the ones who died for our opportunity to stand and for the ones serving to keep that right! Mike and Kap are the losers!! It would be great if that guy never set foot on our soul again.

    This man is disrespectful both to our country and to his business partner. Nike, you chose this disrespectful punk to be a spokesman for your brand and now it’s obvious that he is, indeed, a punk. I will never buy another Nike product (and I have 6 grandsons). I remember something my father used to say that I think applies to this situation…….”Birds of a feather flock together.”

    Kap continues to donate HUGE money to charity. All Nike has to do is supply his shirts and this is no big deal. Its not like he is profiting off the transactions. You have to assume that production of these jerseys was started way before the Nike deal. After all, its only been 10 days since they signed. Seems a lot longer doesn’t it? Production would have taken at least that long. A very successful protest to have the Right Wind Folks still squealing since August of 2017 when his protest started. Keep on complaining. It just means that you are paying attention and that his protest is working. I still can’t quite figure out how you think that “please stop killing unarmed black people” equates to hating America, hating the flag and being unpatriotic???

      His protest started in the start of the 2016 season when Obama was POTUS. And, it started immediately AFTER he was benched in favor of a very mediocre quarterback.

    • Flrn

      September 14, 2018 at 12:07 am

      Because that was his initial reason for not standing. He said, “I am not going to stand up and show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.” He did not say “Please stop killing black people.” The word “please” is not part of his dialogue.” He wore socks with pigs on them wearing police hats. Is that not hatred, especially given that most crime is black on black? This young man was raised by affluent white parents, which is fine, but he needed to do his research before he got this amazing country in an uproar. Sadly, he got exactly what he wanted, by hook or by crook. He donates to cop-killer families. What kind of a role model is he? Plain and simple. He is not. Philip, I understand what you are saying, but you might feel differently if you had a loved one who is an LEO. I do, and I know he would fight to his dying breath to protect Colin Kaepernick if need be.

        September 14, 2018 at 3:14 am

        Well said Flrn, however, Idk what you mean by LEO.. the horoscope Leo?? You lost me there. Anyway, I don’t believe the people of this entire Country oppresses all black people and people of color as he claims it does… Mr. Kap, the ’50s are calling you! Maybe some do this in Chicago or the old South, but for the most part, I think people look for something to fall back on when things don’t go their way or when they want attention. I’m sure we all can find something to complain about, why not use race and bigotry for starters… it always gets lots of attention. These people need to stop using this excuse and come up with something else, the rest of us are sick and tired of this. The people who can fix racial disputes in these cities starts with the people who live there. They need to stop killing each other and our men and women of the police force. Mr. Kapernick,there are too many other problems as it is, be a part of the solution, not a part of the problem. And begin by showing RESPECT for our Country, our President, our Military, and our Flag… or simply leave this Country, we don’t need you.

      I agree with you. You were the only intelligent poster on this right wing site. The only reason I am on this site is to keep abreast of what both sides of politics believe. But the ignorance, and blasphemy and just old fashioned bullying prevails with these ignorant fools.

      People say education doesn’t change anything, but it truly does. And I think having parents who are loving and not prejudiced also helps to raise loving, empathetic, caring, kind adults. Hate is learned behavior. And most of the people who trash those different from them, are too blind to see that what they are attacking, are the things that they say they stand for in America.
      I Am a PROUD AMERICAN Woman and I believe in the American Constitution as well as each and every article and amendment. Therefore, All Americans have the right to express themselves and the right of free speech and religion and RED NECKS and RIGHT WING DEGENERATES who scream they are the ONLY ones waving the FLAG who love America are dumb. JUST plain stupid. Look up the definition. Having the facts and still NOT KNOWING ANY BETTER!!

And you have the right to express yourself on your OWN time, but NOT ON YOUR EMPLOYER’S TIME. You should stick to Occupy Dimmycrats where there are plenty of LobotomizedMorons just like yourself.
