Nike’s Market Value Skyrockets By $6 Billion In Response To Colin Kaepernick Partnership -blogged by @theRealAlexisDanielle
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Despite claims from Donald Trump that Nike would get “killed” following its partnership with Colin Kaepernick, the brand is actually doing very well. Like, billions of dollars well. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
According to CBS News, Nike’s market value has surged by $6 billion since the company revealed the NFL star-turned-Civil Rights Activist as the face of their latest campaign.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The campaign in reference, which premiered during the NFL’s season opener, has caused an uproar of complaints. Some patrons even decided to cover and remove the “checks” from their Nike apparel as a sign of protest, despite having already purchased the products. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Many people, including Trump, expressed their disdain with Nike for supporting a person who would send a “terrible message” by kneeling during the playing of the National Anthem in support of basic human rights. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fortunately for Nike, their current sales do not reflect the beliefs of those people. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Per Reuters, the sportswear giant has also sold out 61 percent more of its products since the release of their ad featuring Kaepernick. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“[Nike’s] new ‘Just Do It’ ad campaign with Colin Kaepernick was a stroke of genius,” said Camilo Lyon, an analyst with financial services company Canaccord Genuity, according to Reuters. “This premeditated move was another subtle but significant sign of Nike’s strength and confidence in its position in the marketplace.”

Kenan Thompson Lands His Own Show On NBC After 15 Years On SNL - Blogged By: @carmen.roxanna
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
While many of us know #KenanThompson from Nickelodeon’s “All That” and “Kenan & Kel” most only know of him as one of greatest (and longest running) comedians on the #SaturdayNightLive series. Now, after 15 years on #SNL, Mr. Thompson will receive his own show from SNL creator and executive producer Lorne Michaels.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Just weeks after receiving his first Emmy award, Kenan has landed the opportunity that could possibly mean the end of his SNL tenure. According to Deadline, Thompson will star in an #NBC single-camera, comedy series titled “Saving Larry”, which is about a widowed father of two children. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The commitment to the show would mean sacrifices have to be made, and Kenan told The Hollywood Reporter that SNL may have to be that sacrifice. As Thompson approaches his 16th season on SNL, he says, “I think about leaving and I fear it. This is such a special place, you want to do your part here, but you also want to make room for people that are coming behind you. This was the first year I really started feeling like, 'OK, I could push out of it now.' I’m not overly excited about going back to auditioning."
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
He also told Deadline that he wants to expand his reach and get into dramatic movie roles too in the future. "I would love to take the #TomHanks approach. Do a bunch of comedy and then turn into the biggest movie star ever. That would be so awesome."
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Kenan can do it! Congratulations!
