The comedian reacted to Nike's decision to make Colin Kaepernick the face of its new "Just Do It" advertising campaign by publishing a portrait of the athlete kneeling during the national anthem and celebrating Nike for its controversial decision.

The former NFL quarterback became a polarizing figure in 2016 after he began kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality. I'm not gonna speak for them, but there was no one happy about it. The decision won the support of National Basketball Association star LeBron James - also a Nike athlete - who ended a speech Tuesday night by saying, "I stand with Nike, all day, every day", Bleacher Report writes.

On Monday, Nike released an ad featuring Kaepernick that reads, "Believe in something".

"Everything that Nike's doing with Kaepernick is incredible", he said. "I stand with anyone who believes in change".

The Game was recently stopped by TMZ who asked the rapper about Nike's new ad campaign with Colin Kaepernick. So, right now I'm boycotting Nike.

Since the Nike ad came out, people have taken to social media, burning shoes and cutting the logo out of their clothes.

Kaepernick says at the end: "Don't ask if your dreams are insane. I feel like they obviously have great respect from a lot of their peers, especially other athletes, people that really are looking for social change".

In the two-minute advert Kaepernick narrates before appearing halfway through as a reflection of a United States flag is visible on the facade of a building behind him.

"Don't ask if your dreams are insane, ask if they're insane enough", Kaepernick asks at the end of the spot.

Kaepernick is suing the NFL, saying its owners conspired to keep him out of the league because of his protests that spread to teams nationwide.

He has been out of a job for more than a year, but this latest ad marks a new multi-year deal with the sports apparel giant.
