Nike’s 30th anniversary ‘Just Do It’ campaign has undoubtedly garnered the sports brand a great deal of attention.
The brand’s decision to feature former quarterback Colin Kaepernick has garnered not only disapproval from many internet users, but also a response from US President Donald Trump and the creation of brutal memes.
There are others, however, who support Nike’s decision on featuring Kaepernick, including tennis star Serena Williams and rapper 50 Cent, who took to Instagram to voice out his thoughts on the campaign.
He posted an image of Nike’s ad featuring Kaepernick to Instagram with the caption, “Good morning this is the BEST NIKE Campaign ever, What a statement, I can dig it man I like this.”
Right after displaying his love for Nike and Kaepernick, 50 Cent proceeded to poke fun at Kanye West by replacing Kaepernick’s face with that of the rapper in a spoof ad.
The meme comes with the slogan “slavery was a choice” and the adidas logo beneath. 50 Cent accompanied the parody with the disclaimer, “Nah Yeezy be saying some bullshit but he still ours meaning Hip Hop. I like this too not what he says but what he is.”
Back in May, West received backlash for saying that 400 years of slavery was actually a choice during a TMZ video interview, included below. Among those who criticized West’s remarks was Snoop Dogg who responded by whitening the rapper’s face. West subsequently clarified that he had meant to say African-Americans were “mentally imprisoned” to have had remained in this position for such a long time.Highsnobiety, opening image via 50 Cent] http://www.designtaxi.com/news/401379/50-Cent-Throws-Shade-At-Kanye-West-In-Parody-Of-Nike-s-Colin-Kaepernick-Ad/
