Louisiana Mayor Bans Nike Apparel from City Facilities




 

Last week Nike caused an uproar with their advertisement that featured Colin Kaepernick for its new campaign. Well this week has still felt the ripple effects of the controversy from the advertisement. The mayor of a small Louisiana town has responded to the aftermath with a choice that some may not agree with. The mayor decided to ban Nike products from all city recreation facilities.  

On Wednesday, Kenner Mayor E. Ben Zahn III’s ordered that purchases be made by sports booster clubs for “apparel, shoes, athletic equipment and/or any athletic product” for use at city recreation facilities be approved by the city of Kenner in Louisiana. 

Louisiana’s mayor issued the memo to the city in the wake of Nike’s announcement that Colin Kaepernick would be the face of its 30th anniversary “Just do it” advertising campaign. Kaepernick caused controversy back in 2016 in the NFL by protesting police brutality and racial inequality when he began kneeling during the national anthems before each game.  

The mayor wrote the following in a statement; “Under no circumstances will any Nike product or any product with the Nike logo be purchased for use or delivery at any City of Kenner Recreation facility.” 

Nike’s backlash has been one of the hottest topics in the country since fans of the popular swoosh company began boycotting the brand and burning their Nike items due to the advertisement. Although since the outrage Nike’s online sales jumped double digits since the campaign was announced, the topic is still relevant with each fan seeming to take a side. 

The rest of the memo made to the city of Kenner, Louisiana is stated below and hit the web immediately in a viral post on Twitter. Residents in the state of Louisiana are also outraged by the decision that the mayor has made about the Nike clothing and shoe brand. The full memo can be read below:
