The College of the Ozarks, based in Point Lookout, chose to cut ties with Nike just days after the Oregon-based company unveiled the new campaign featuring the controversial football player, according to The Associated Press. "It's a lovely spot", Woods said. The NFL star sparked controversy when he started kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality and racial inequality.

Davis said he believes Americans are growing exhausted of divisiveness and that Nike is "stirring controversy". "Some pretty powerful people in the spot".

Many people have been taking to social media to rip apart Carrey's celebratory artwork, as well as Nike's deal with Kaepernick.

"But if it's really how the leadership of the company feels and they're attacking law enforcement and military folks on goal and then why deal with them when there's plenty of others out there".

On Thursday during the National Football League opener, Nike unveiled its first "Just Do It" ad narrated by Kaepernick. But some have begun to boycott Nike in opposition to his inclusion. On Friday morning Trump tweeted: "What was Nike thinking?".
