The Colin Kaepernick ad campaign with Nike has caused some people to burn their own property. It’s also caused sales to jump. The latest news involving the Kaepernick ad campaign is that a city in Louisiana banned any city money from being spent on Nike merchandise.
Kenner, Lousiana mayor Ben Zahn sent out a private memo on September 5th that announced the ban.
Just confirmed this is real.
The City of Kenner, Louisiana just banned all purchases of Nike in their parks and recreation department.
