John Rich wants to clarify his stance on not purchasing products from Nike after the brand hired controversial football player Colin Kaepernick as a spokesman.
In a statement issued through his publicist, he writes, "I support every American's right to protest whatever they want. However, if you endorse someone who wears #PIGSOCKS that's where you lose me. If @nike wants their "swoosh" to be associated with calling our police "Pigs" then so be it. I have a right to not purchase.
"Our police saved lives at the Las Vegas shooting where we played, and the heroism they displayed is second to none. We appreciate the job they are willing to do all day, every day to protect all of us. They are the farthest thing from pigs."
Here is the original post.
Here is his tweet explaining why he's not supporting the Nike product anymore.
