First the @NFL forces me to choose between my favorite sport and my country. I chose country. Then @Nike forces me to choose between my favorite shoes and my country.

If you plan on boycotting Nike I will dispose of all of your clothing items for FREE, just hit my DM’s. I have a school full of children that could use it here in Jamaica.— Don DeAngelo (@thedonholly) September 3, 2018
The same people saying liberals get offended too easily are literally destroying their wardrobes and cutting the clothes off of their body because a black athlete appeared in one advertisement. pic.twitter.com/ljQWhHmRn1— Justin Horwitz (@Progressive_Pol) September 4, 2018
