I went to the mall earlier today for something to do and to get out of the house for a while for myself. I was browsing through different clothing stores and shoes stores at the mall and what do I see? Most clothing stores and shoes stores are stocked up with Nike all over the fucking place! Pretty much ALL Nike items were on sale at pretty good prices too.
I never bought anything off of Nike today, but I was shocked and amazed that pretty much all Nike items were on sale. All of it: shoes, t-shirts, socks, sweatshirts, etc. Then I get to thinking to myself…. “Hmmmmm, yep. They are definitely scared of the boycotts”.
Admittedly, I wear Nike sneakers for the gym and I wear them for running and jogging. I was thinking about getting a pair of new gym sneakers anyways but the next pair won’t be Nike. I’m planning on getting rid of these Nike sneakers that I wear at the gym but I won’t burn them or throw them out. Maybe I’ll just give them to somebody or donate them somewhere.
Can you see why everybody’s boycotting Nike? People just don’t want to support a company that supports someone who hates America… yes that’s Colin Kaepernick. Nobody wants to spend money toward someone who kneels to the flag at football games. That just sends a negative message to America. People don’t want to support it. Of course, liberals are starting to defend Nike and show their support for the company but that’s not gonna stop people from boycotting.
I try not to boycott things a lot but I only did with people like Bruce Springsteen when he went off about the bathroom gender crap, Stephen King for attacking Trump on twitter constantly, Netflix for collaborating on projects with the Obamas and making Susan Rice board of directors and now you can add Nike to the boycott list.
It was interesting what I saw at the mall today. Stores that stocks Nike items that are on sale everywhere. They’re desperate to attract more buyers is why. Scared of the boycotts. Even though you’ll see Nike everywhere at the malls, they won’t be flying off the shelves. The stores will notice low sales at all of them. Just watch for it.
It’s sad. When will these major companies ever learn that going political isn’t such a good idea? That isn’t gonna attract customers at all.
