A Louisiana mayor banned city booster clubs from buying Nike products


September 10, 2018

Nike’s sales are up 31 percent after the brand revealed a new “Just Do It” campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers player who created the “take a knee” movement to protest police brutality. Despite the increase in sales, though, not everyone is happy about the new ads. Some people have burned and cut up their Nike products to show their dissatisfaction with the Kaepernick campaign. And now, an entire city has apparently decided not to support the athletic company.

The Times-Picayune reported Sunday that Ben Zahn, the Republican mayor of Kenner, La., instructed the city’s recreation department to not buy anything that showed the Nike logo. Zahn didn’t immediately respond to Yahoo’s request for comment.
