Country star from Big & Rich blasts Nike for their deal with Colin Kaepernick.

It looks like not everyone is happy to see Nike’s new partnership with Colin Kaerpernick. Hours after the news broke that Colin was apart of Nike’s "Just Do It" 30th anniversary campaign, a deal that includes a custom shoe, custom apparel and other merch, Big & Rich country singer, John Rich, decided to blast Nike for the deal. If you’re unfamiliar with Big & Rich, they created the song “Save A Horse (Ride A Cowboy),” which I'm sure you’ve heard at one time or another.

The Big & Rich country star believes the deal is an insult to law enforcement and points to the incident where Kaepernick wore a pair of socks featuring a pig dressed up in a police uniform. "Hey @Nike, if you're gonna make the shoes, make the PIG SOCKS to match. Right? Cmon, people will LOVE that," Rich tweeted. He also wrote, the deal "makes me sick.”

For what its worth, Colin wore those socks during training camp in 2016 when he was the 49ers QB. He later cleared the air, saying "I wore these socks, in the past, because the rogue cops that are allowed to hold positions in police departments, not only put the community in danger, but also put the cops that have the right intentions in danger by creating an environment of tension and mistrust.”

John Rich later added…. “our soundman just cut the Nike swoosh off his socks. Former marine. Get ready @Nike multiply that by the millions,” he tweeted out.
