Josh Hawley

Missouri Senator Josh Hawley is expressing his displeasure with Nike after the company reportedly pulled an American flag style shoe from the market.

According to the Wall-Street Journal Nike pulled a shoe with a colonial-era U.S. flag after former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who has an endorsement deal from the company, and others found the flag symbol offensive because of its connection to the slavery era.

Hawley tweeted out yesterday (Tuesday) that Nike is anti-American for the move.

He says Nike should apologize to Missourians and restart production of the shoe.
