'Black-ish' Star Jenifer Lewis Rocks Nike to Emmys, 'I'm With Kaepernick'

Actress Tatiana Maslany, from the TV show Orphan Black, wore a Planned Parenthood pin on her Emmys outfit in support of the abortion organization.

Kaepernick's campaign, which features the tagline "Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything", has sparked both outrage from Donald Trump and other conservatives as well as approval from fellow celebrities and customers.

Despite some calling for a Nike boycott after the divisive campaign was revealed, the company's stock price closed at an all-time high last week.

Lewis said she wore Nike "in support of Colin Kaepernick's protest against police brutality and racial injustice", referring to the quarterback's controversy after first taking a knee.

Lewis added that while prepping her look for the Emmys, she was thinking, "What can I do?"

Jenifer Lewis says she wanted to support Colin Kaepernick's "protest against police brutality and racial injustice". "We need more of corporate America to stand up also".
