Last week, Kaepernick scored a legal victory in his grievance against the NFL and its 32 teams when an arbitrator denied the league's request to throw out the quarterback's claims that owners conspired to keep him out of the league because of his protests of social injustice.
However, the National Football League is now in an arbitration fight with Kaepernick, who alleges that he's been unable to get back on the field since he entered free agency in March 2017 because of possible collusion between owners not to hire him.
"Hey Nike I guess you made Kaepernick your new "face" of the brand because you love the way his socks look with your shoes?"
"Especially proud to be a part of the Nike family today #justdoit", Serena Williams, 36, tweeted on September 3, the same day that Nike unveiled its new campaign celebrating the 30th anniversary of its "Just Do It" slogan.
Country musician John Rich also tweeted that his sound technician, who he says is a former marine, cut off Nike's signature swoosh from his socks in protest. "They pay a lot of rent".

LeBron James, Chris Paul, and Kevin Durant were among the athletes that posted the ad on their Instagram accounts, which is a black and white image of Kaepernick along with the text "Believe in something".
"I think it's incredible", Bradley said Tuesday when asked about the Kaepernick campaign. A free agent, he has not been signed since the conclusion of the 2016 season.

NFL owners in May approved a new policy which made it mandatory for all players on the field to stand during the pre-match ritual of the U.S. national anthem.
The NFL responded to the ad in a statement on Twitter, saying, "the social justice issues that Colin and other professional athletes have raised deserve our attention and action".
