Eva Marie Weighs In on Colin Kaepernick/Nike Advertisement Debate (VIDEO)

Former WWE star Eva Marie dropped a thirty-minute video this weekend in which she talks about being unhappy with the verbiage in Nike‘s recent Colin Kaepernick advertisement.

Eva posted a video on YouTube titled “CONTROVERSY Colin Kaepernick, Nike & President Donald Trump On Salty Saturday’s” where she and her husband discuss understanding where Kaepernick was coming from — and how he had the right to silently protest during the national anthem — but they don’t think he went out about things the right way. 

The couple does, however, believe Colin Kaepernick had nothing but good intentions and will be remembered on the right side of history in the future. 

As for the advertisement, Eva and Jonathan Coyle say Nike had the right to make whatever they want … but they feel like using an athlete with the slogan “Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything” slights the sacrifices being made by law enforcement/armed forces.

“My dad went to Vietnam when he was 19-years-old with 7 guys … he was lucky and came back with 6,” Marie explained. “So, they lost a guy out there. That is the ultimate sacrifice.”

Adding, “My dad to this day he doesn’t really talk about the Vietnam War because that is something that these guys and women go to that us out here that are living an amazing life will never understand. Because we were never there. And they are giving the ultimate sacrifice because they are leaving their husbands, theirs wives, their kids to go serve our country and give us the freedom to go play ball.”

    I read Nike already lost millions since they ran the ad. Risky.

    • Lou DiFigliano #Deleted

      I like the risk they took.

    • Jared Lee

      The stock has already rebounded and they were just upgraded by market analysts yesterday. So, no.

      • Louis

        Fuck you.

        • Jared Lee

          Lol. I’m sorry reality doesn’t align with your expectations. Maybe fact check next time.

          • Louis

            Nothing to fact check you dumbass. I was simply giving a comment based on a story I read about Nike losing millions.

            I don’t care at all on the Kaepernick situation. I actually liked the guy when he was with the Niners.

            So stick your condescending SJW bullshit up your ass you chinaman with a small dick, loser bitch.

          • Jared Lee

            And I was simply giving a comment about how the article you may have read a few days ago no longer reflects what’s going on. Funny how stock prices work that.

            Everything must seem condescending to you….there’s a reason for that.

          • Louis

            Shut the fuck up and stick a dildo up your ass.

          • Jared Lee

            Ooh, such biting commentary.

            Better luck next time.

          • Louis

            Bite DEEZE BALLS.

          • Jared Lee

            How is it that I’m the gay one, but you ‘re the one who can’t shut up about dicks, asses, and balls?

            Repressed much?

          • Louis

            Repress deez nutz in yo’ mouf bitch.

          • Jared Lee

            You’re bad at internet trolling, dude.

          • Louis

            Keep sucking my dick, dude.

          • Jared Lee

            You already used that line.

            Besides, if I were doing it, we’d be done by now.

          • Louis

            Suck my dick.

          • Jared Lee

            Oh? Well congrats on coming out.

            But, no. I wouldn’t give you the time of day.

            And Bone Thugs? They were barely relevant when they were almost popular 20 years ago.

            Save yourself the next “suck my dick,” dude.

          • Louis

            Suck my dick.

          • Louis

            Eat my balls, loser.

  • Jared Lee

    Interpreting the kneeling/Anthem protest as “against the troops” at this point is being wilfully ignorant. Not only are you actively ignoring what Kaepernick and others have said about why they are protesting (racial injustice and police brutality), but also the fact that it was a U.S. army Veteran (Green Beret no less) Nate Boyer who suggested that Kaepernick kneel in the first place. Go ahead, look that one up on Snopes.

  • Louis

    Ran this loser Jared Lee out of here. Punk bitch.
