“DUMP NIKE” is #1 Most Shared Post On Facebook Leading Kaepernick Ad Backlash
(CLIFTON, VA, Sept. 6, 2018) – ForAmerica – the largest conservative organization on social media – is keeping the heat on NIKE, with thousands of supporters declaring their boycott of the sports brand.
ForAmerica’s social media post comparing NIKE’s “sacrificing everything” ad with the sacrifice of the men and women buried at Arlington National Cemetary, has over 278K shares and has reached over 13 million users across Facebook. Today, the Facebook analyzing service BuzzSumo shows it is the #1 most shared content on Facebook related to NIKE’s ad featuring Colin Kaepernick.
David Bozell, ForAmerica President, commented:
“Brands like NIKE that reward this no-talent backup risk losing billions of dollars and are tone deaf to those families whose loved ones have truly sacrificed for us.”
The New York Times called ForAmerica “One of the great unexpected influences of the [2016 Presidential] election.”
