NIKE’S FAVORABILITY TANKS FOLLOWING COLIN KAEPERNICK CAMPAIGN. THE NUMBERS ARE ATROCIOUS

Nike’s favorability took a massive hit after it made Colin Kaepernickthe face of its new “Just Do It” campaign.

According to a study conducted by the Morning Consult and interviews with thousands of people, the popular apparel brand had a net favorability rating of +69 prior to the Kaepernick ad.

Knock the stock prices down to nothing. Of course, you have to use an insider to create a disastrous ad campaign, but when the stock are low enough, buy and bankrupt the company. With the manufacturing already overseas, the market still around for business, and past debts at pennies on the dollar, a "new" brand can be created. The profits will be huge.
