Fox News superstar Laura Ingraham just confirmed the rumors. She made the announcement before millions of fans — this means goodbye forever.
Responding to the Nike controversy, Ingraham tweeted, “No more @nike sneakers for our family.” She also shared a Wall Street Journal article entitled, “Nike Nixes ‘Betsy Ross Flag’ Sneaker After Colin Kaepernick Intervenes”.
Ingraham has nearly three million followers on Twitter, and it’s possible many of her fans will boycott Nike as well for their capitulation to NFL has-been Colin Kaepernick. His anti-Americanism cannot be tolerated.
The new line of Nike sneakers with the famous ‘Betsy Ross’ flag were ready to launch while Americans prepared to celebrate Independence Day, However, Kaepernick decided to play the “slavery” card to bully Nike.
