The ad was unleashed for the 30th anniversary of Nike's first Just Do It campaign and Nike also released ads featuring Serena Williams, NFL receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. The sportswear giant today released a two-minute-long video "Dream Crazy" narrated by Kaepernick as part of its controversial effort.

Despite his objections to Nike hiring Kaepernick and the message he believes it sends, the president did admit the company does have a right to conduct its business how it wants. "Picture OBJ wearing yours".

"Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything #JustDoIt".

He said: "When I walked into the team room this morning, there were some people who were fuming".

The full video version that was released on Wednesday presents "a girl from Compton" while showing a young Serena Williams, with the controversial former National Football League star heard saying, "don't just become a tennis player, become the greatest athlete - ever".

Wineland gained popularity for her videos, where she candidly discussed the hardest parts of CF, often with humor and a smile. While the illness differs greatly from person to person, the predicted median survival age is close to 40.

The College of the Ozarks is dropping its affiliation with Nike in response to the company's new ad campaign with Colin Kaepernick, according to KY3.

"If you're born a refugee, don't let it stop you from playing soccer for the national team - at age 16", Kaepernick says.

"I don't think athletes have a role to play", she said.

"Colin is the embodiment of the movement and the change that we're trying to have people realize", Reid said. The former Manchester United captain has never shied away from getting involved in social causes, and his latest post shows his full support for Kaepernick on his quest for social justice. "As for me, I support Colin, I support my brother, I support the stance that he's taking". But the company has seen social media backlash since the Kaepernick announcement, with the hashtags #BoycottNike and #JustBurnIt trending on Twitter, Bloomberg reports.

"When I sat down with him, I felt this genuineness with him ... we had this mutual respect for one another", he said.
