Although controversial, Nike felt as though his message was an important one to support.

I grew up in OR and was around @Nike my whole life.

The president told The Daily Caller on Tuesday that Nike should not have chosento feature the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback.

Nike, which is the NFL's official apparel partner, has had Kaepernick on its endorsement roster since 2011 - years before Kaepernick became the face of the kneeling protest movement.

By Tuesday, we finally got a quote from Donald Trump on the matter. "As far as the National Football League is concerned, I just find it hard to watch, and always will, until they stand for the FLAG!" he tweeted. Some in Turlock say they will continue to support the athlete, his massager of racial injustice and the new Nike ad.

Nike unveiled an advert on Monday with Kaepernick, who first kneeled during the U.S. national anthem in 2016 in protest at social and racial injustice and has not played since January 2017.

Colin Kaepernick is the face of Nike's latest ad campaign, and it has some people riled up. She said it was a valuable lesson for her students at the College of Southern Maryland, where she teaches.

While the move by Nike may have come as a surprise to some, Yahoo Sports reported that Adidas and Puma were among multiple brands that had conversations about potentially building around Kaepernick if Nike failed to renew his deal.

"It's a big standard to believe in something and be able to go through with that belief whether its whatever he believes in or whatever I believe and I stand for what I believe and yes I believe you should sacrifice everything for something you do believe in", said Valentin Horta.

She added of his activism in general: "I think everyone has a choice to do what they choose to do".

He noted how his mother had raised him alone and had given him "a sense of pride, a sense of strength, a sense of no worry". "Can you let me know?"'.

The NBA star, who was wearing one of his favored shrunken-fit shorts suits by designer Thom Browne, called his daughter "my rock".

With that, Bryant acknowledged he too would've received and accepted the criticism that's been heaped on other athletes who have aligned themselves with Kaepernick's message. "Not only did she change me, she's made me a better person".

Also honored at the ceremony were Harlem streetwear designer Dapper Dan and stylist Jason Rembert.
