Donald Trump Jr. said Wednesday he "fixed" the new Colin Kaepernick Nike ad.

The president's son posted his own version of the ad on Instagram Wednesday with the comment, "There, fixed it for you".

On Monday, Nike released a promotional image for their new Kaepernick-inspired campaign which featured a black and white portrait of the player superimposed with the slogan "Believe in something".

ESPN reported that the new ad, meant to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the brand's iconic "Just Do It" motto, features the message: "Believe in something".

Colin Kaepernick has another message for fans just days after his Nike campaign sparked controversy.

Kaepernick, who led the 49ers to the brink of a Super Bowl victory in 2013, has been unable to find employment with an National Football League team since being released by San Francisco in 2017. Now they've given him an excuse to send out a new smoke screen to help us forget about Russian Federation, rampant corruption and abducted children. But she did, he said. If they laugh at what they think you can do - good.

"I feel like I've lived through this before, just being close to my older brother and seeing him go through it when he was with the 49ers", Justin Reid said.

Kaepernick, a former quarterback with the San Francisco 49ers, rose to prominence after electing to kneel during the United States national anthem to protest racial injustice.

Nike is the official uniform maker for the NFL.

The management of a Colorado Springs sporting goods store has chose to stop selling Nike merchandise after the company featured Colin Kaepernick in a new marketing campaign, KRDO reports.

"Nike has always had athletes that were on the cutting edge", said Dick Dillard with Fast Break Athletics.

But to one fellow member of the pro-quarterback fraternity, an athlete's sacrifice - even one that could mean no longer being a professional athlete - doesn't compare to some more real-world examples.

However, Williams added that athletes needed to be careful of how they participate in any sort of social injustice. "I stand for anybody that believes in a positive attitude", LeBron James said in support.

But Nike's ad "wades into different water", Grier said.

"Nike is free to campaign as it sees fit, as the college is free, and honor-bound by its mission and goals, to ensure that it respects our country and those who truly served and sacrificed", said Marci Linson, the school's director of admissions and vice president of patriotic activities.

Nike also will create an apparel line for Kaepernick, including a signature shoe, and contribute to his Know Your Rights charity, the person said.
