Disregard Dior and Chanel ... "Black- ish" star Jenifer Lewis was about NIKE at the Emmys - shaking a Swoosh sweatshirt to help Colin Kaepernick. "I am wearing Nike to hail them for supporting Colin Kaepernick and his challenge against racial unfairness and police ruthlessness," the on-screen character told Variety.
Lewis says she was swimming a day or two ago when she began conceptualizing design thoughts that would be "significant" on celebrity lane ... what's more, that is when Nike rung a bell. "I'll wear Nike to state 'thank you' ... much thanks to you for driving the obstruction. We require a greater amount of corporate America to stand up too."
She included, "Thank you, Colin. Much thanks to you for everything that you do. Much thanks to you for being fearless. Much obliged to you for taking a knee. Much thanks to you." Nike marked Colin to another arrangement as of late - and will drop everything from another custom shoe to a Kaepernick-themed clothing line.
