Nike, the famous shoe brand has been taken down badly for their unpatriotic decision by the son of current president of the US, Donald trump recently.
The shoe company made a decision to get the Betsy Ross Flag removed after receiving comments about the flag being offensive by the far-left activist Colin Kaepernick.
This decision from Nike has attracted a lot of comments including that of Jr. Donald Trump himself.
This was one of the flags that had gained a lot of attention during the American Revolution as it was flown during this time as per the reports from CNBC. The shoes with this flag were supposed to be getting released on the July 4th.
Nike has been slammed badly for the hasty decision taken and has been penalized badly by asking them to use a communist logo. There are suggestions to mesh the hammer-and-sickle from the Union Soviet along with the Nike’s Swoosh logo.
There are several tweets apart from Trump Jr about Nike’s decision on removing the flag from the shoes and looks like Nike is going through a rough phase at this juncture.
There have been announcements about the withdrawal of incentives that were offered to Nike by the Arizona government. Doug Ducey has announced this against Nike leading to turmoil in the company’s growth.
Also, the Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz tweeted penalizing how Nike is indulging in unpatriotic things. He has voiced out using harsh words about Nike’s intention of selling sneakers to those who do not love the American flag and this seems to be quite alarming for Nike as a brand.
There are a lot of other statements that are leading towards the destruction of the brand reputation of Nike. Ducey also says how disappointed he has been with the decision of Nike in removing the Betsy Ross Flag from one of their shoes.
No one would have probably expected such a radical decision from a reputed brand like Nike says Ducey.
He also said that, instead of celebrating the Independence Day Nike has actually brought the values of the Betsy Ross with their decision of removing the flag from the shoes. He also speaks about the company forgetting about the revolution and the history of America.
With their decision, looks like Nike is going to face a real tough crisis because Ducey has made a decision to withdraw all the financial incentives that was granted for the company to set their foot in Arizona.
He also says that he isn’t interested in a company that would put patriotism at stake. He also says he does not want to associate with a company like Nike and proudly announces that Arizona has been doing great in terms of their economy and they do not need an association with Nike.
He concluded that the story of Betsy Ross shall be taught in all the American Schools without fail and also he suggested that it’s worth knowing the founding mother through Google.
