Alabama pastor cuts up Nike gear during sermon, as congregation cheers, laughs

Real talk Michael was in the NFL for 15 years- playing the entire duration of his career with the New York Giants

Truett McConnell University in Cleveland, Georgia, released a statement Friday announcing the end of its partnership with Nike and detailing plans for the rest of its Nike merchandise.

An Alabama pastor on Sunday used a pair of scissors during a sermon to destroy Nike items after learning the apparel company endorsed Colin Kaepernick.

But early figures from research companyEdison Trends suggests Nike's bold ad campaign could prove a financial success (and not just because those people had already paid for their scorched trainers).

The 30-year-old Amnesty International award recipient was featured in an ad for Nike that said, "Believe in something even if it means sacrificing everything".

These findings suggest Americans are becoming more tolerant of the movement ex-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick began during the 2016 preseason, when he refused to stand during the national anthem to protest social inequality and police brutality in America. But President Trump, who has been condemning National Football League player protests for the past year, has deemed the protests to be a challenge to the military and the American flag.

Google is giving Inbox app the axe next year
In it, Google walks customers through using some of their favorite features from Inbox in Gmail as well as discover new ones. The app presented features not found in the Gmail experience and earned itself some faithful users as a result.

The College of the Ozarks, a small Christian school in Missouri, has cut its contract with Nike over the partnership and Liberty University president Jerry Falwell, Jr., is considering pulling out as well.

"If Nike chooses to apologize to our troops and to our law enforcement officers, then - and only then - will TMU reconsider their brand", Caner said.

In the wake of Nike's new ad, calls for a boycott of the company have swelled, and fake posts claiming colleges and towns are cutting ties with Nike have sprung up.

Caner said any profits from the remaining Nike gear on campus will be sent to Wounded Warriors and the Fraternal Order of Police.

Experts say that by continuing to insert himself into the ongoing debate regarding NFL players kneeling during the national anthem, Trump may have inadvertently helped out Nike by criticizing the brand on Twitter. "They are the true heroes". "The athletes- we support Kaepernick", he said.
