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

A pullover, some leggings, some sneakers, you name it!

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.

Where Did Christine Blasey Ford Go to High School?
The White House seemed to endorse the decision, with spokesman Raj Shah releasing a complementary statement Monday evening. Ms Feinstein on Sunday called on the FBI to investigate Ms Ford's story "before the Senate moves forward on this nominee".

Days after the ad campaign's initial release, Nike's stock initially dropped 3%, but shares have now recovered and surpassed prior records - including online sales, which jumped almost 31% in a single weekend. What can I do that's meaningful?

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

"Thank you for leading the Resistance", Lewis said in a message to Nike and Kaepernick.

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".

Black-ish is known for tackling timely and sensitive topics; however, an episode centered around football players kneeling during the national anthem was scrapped previous year due to "creative differences". Thank you for being courageous. Thank you for all that you do. Thank you for all that you do. "Thank you." No, thank you, Jenifer.
