Conservative hilariously mocked after he ruins his own Nike socks to protest Kaepernick

On Monday, country musician John Rich tweeted a picture that showed the cut up Nike socks of his sound guy.


"Our Soundman just cut the Nike swoosh off his socks. Former marine. Get ready @Nike multiply that by the millions," Rich tweeted.

The social media post was seen as a rebuke to the activism of sports athletes like Colin Kaepernick, who've used their platforms to speak out against police brutality and other issues that disproportionality impact people of color.

The footwear protest appears to be in response to Nike choosing Kaepernick to take part in a campaign commemorating their “Just Do It” slogan.

The Internet promptly responded with glee at the prospect of shredding your own socks to protest someone else's public protest.

Here's a round-up of the best takes.
