Katherine Rodriguez reports at Breitbart:
A Gold Star mother is the latest to speak out against Nike’s latest "Just Do It" ad campaign featuring former NFL player Colin Kaepernick for making light of the word "sacrifice."
Trina Hart, who lost her 21-year-old Marine son Ty Hart when his helicopter went down off the coast of the Hawaiian island of Oahu during a mission in 2016, is blasting Nike for using Kaepernick as its spokesperson for an ad about "sacrifice," KOIN reported.
The Nike ad, which Kaepernick narrates, features stories from athletes who overcame illness or disabilities . . . .
"Hart said the ad belittles those like her son, who made the ultimate sacrifice in fighting for the U.S.," Rodriguez writes.
"Everything is your life," Hart is quoted as saying. "My son sacrificed his life."
"Those other 11 men the night my son died sacrificed their lives. I'm sorry, I don't find any 'sacrificing everything' in what Colin Kaepernick did."
Nike owes "America an apology. They owe Gold Star families an apology," Hart said, according to Breitbart.
