Conservative pundit Tomi Lahren is upset over Nike’s Betsy Ross shoe disaster … but only because Nike kowtowed to Colin Kaepernick, who she believes is a “disgrace to this country.”
Fresh off her recent engagement, Lahren was out in NYC promoting her new book, “Never Play Dead: How the Truth Makes You Unstoppable.” The Fox News host called Kaepernick a “spokes cry-baby” and is shocked that he’s “offended and oppressed” by a shoe.
On Monday, it was reported that Kaepernick privately forced Nike to nix their shoes because of the flag on the back.
The special edition Air Max 1 Quick Strike Fourth of July trainer features the The Betsy Ross flag, and the circle of 13 stars has been connected to groups with racist ideologies, as well as a connection to slavery.
After scrapping the kicks, Nike said released a statement saying, “based on concerns that it could unintentionally offend and detract from the nation’s patriotic holiday.”
