Conservatives Boycotting Nike

Prominent conservatives announced a boycott on Nike.

The boycott comes after the company pulled a sneaker featuring an early version of the US flag.

According to Business Insider, Nike's Air Max 1 USA featured a depiction of the "Betsy Ross" flag.

The shoe was pulled after former NFL player Colin Kaepernick said that he and others found the American flag-themed shoe offensive.

They said the 13-starred flag has unwelcome associations with slavery and white supremacy.
