Nike continues to anger fans as it's now doubled down on its Kaepernick partnership and released a new ad narrated by the former San Francisco 49ers player - who is also responsible for starting the controversial national anthem kneeling protests in the NFL. "I stand with anyone who believes in change".
The TV campaign, called "Dream Crazy", shows Nike is ready to go even bigger with Kaepernick.
"And if you're a girl from Compton don't just become a tennis player, become the greatest athlete ever", Kaepernick says as footage runs of Williams serving over a tennis net.
In a 2016 interview with NFL.com, Kaepernick explained why he made a decision to take a knee during the anthem. Younger Americans are said to strongly support Kaepernick's protest, and they are the biggest consumers of Nike products.
Police are asking for anyone who is considering burning their Nike shoes in protest over an endorsement deal with Colin Kaepernick to instead contact them so they can give them to someone in need.
Kaepernick says: "Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything".

Kaepernick, 30, has not played since the 2016 season and filed a grievance last October against NFL owners for collusion, claiming they schemed to keep him off the football field because of his protests, not his football playing ability.
"Investors in OR, where Nike is headquartered, are buying the stock 850% more than they are selling".
"Investors on Robinhood are buying Nike stock 300% more than they are selling, compared to 12% last week", Sahill Poddar, the app's data scientist, told Business Insider on Tuesday.
Nike's stock price fell by almost 4% when Kaepernick first revealed he was fronting the campaign on social media.
But its social-media buzz is booming, with social mentions jumping 1,400% to 2.7 million in the day after Kaepernick posted the ad image of himself on Twitter, simply hashtagged #JustDoIt, according to Mobile Marketer.
"I'm really encouraged by it", Stills said Thursday.
