It appeared that “Mustard” had fused himself to the very company he was trying so desperately to separate himself from when some of the pieces from the sneakers became grafted to his feet as a result of the flames.

“Docter says I may lose them anyway so I may just have them amputated,” he wrote in a follow-up tweet.

It appears that Trump still has a lot of supporters among non-college educated white males.

As much as people had a field day commenting over the idiotic stunt, Internet sleuths revealed the whole thing was a hoax.

“Mustard”‘s real name is Phil Braun. He is a writer and an online comedian who supports Nike’s decision to team up with Kaepernick.

The picture of the burnt feet are not his.

According to Snopes, the burned victim’s feet belong to an unidentified patient at the Alfred Hospital in Melbourne, Australia.

The photograph was made available as early as March 2017 on the Victorian State Trauma System website.

I didn't hear about any of them falling for this.

Once again, Nike proves itself smarter than Donald Trump or those people who set their shoes on fire either with or without their feet in them. Nike sales grew 31% over the Labor Day holiday weekend in comparison with last year.

Looking at a one time SJW spike. Over time, which is what really matters, you and they will see a decline.

No, because political boycotts tend to be short-lived on both sides of the political spectrum. Remember all those anti-Disney boycotts because of the company's stance on gay rights. It hasn't seemed to hurt their bottom line very much over the years.

I see we made a bit of a logical leap here based on nothing.

I will put electricians, plumbers, bricklayers etc etc well ahead of Womyn's Studies majors in the common sense department.

My statement was based on statistics. What you can't hepp is making unfunny jokes when you have no response based on the facts.
