Donald Trump Jr. “Fixes” Kaepernick Nike Ad by Replacing Athlete With His Dad
On Monday, Nike announced its campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick with an image of the football player’s face overlaid with the text “Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything.”

Yesterday, Donald Trump Jr., President’s Trump son, posted a doctored version of the ad on Instagram, with Kaepernick replaced by the President. “There, fixed it for you,” the caption said, followed by “#maga.”
Whether Trump Jr. was aware of not, his re-edit of the Nike image isn’t the only one. The ad has quickly become a meme, with everyone from The Office‘s Michael Scott to Marvel’s Thanos getting their own version. Rapper 50 Cent even got in on the joke by reposting a parody with Kanye West that read, “Slavery was a choice.”
