Now on the other hand we have Kanye West at Adidas, who just tweeted this out, comparing himself to Colin Kaepernick.
I stand for giving everyone a voice. Adidas giving me a voice and Nike giving Colin voice on a big business level makes the world a more advanced place.

Kanye must not be enjoying all the attention Colin Kaepernick and Nike are receiving for their movement. For him to even compare the impact of their ambassadorships is just laughable at this point.
The attention whores Adidas and Kanye. Can’t let Nike have a great campaign. pic.twitter.com/FMCtv2o3nr

Kanye being Kanye.
Man you ain't taking a knee, let Colin have his moment, we know Adidas gives you a voice, go use it to speak to your buddy Trump about police brutality, leave Colin and his cause out of your positive energy palava
