And so, the sportswear brand's decision to include him in their campaign, alongside tennis player Serena Williams, was meant to inspire people.

But they ended up pissing off some people.

Are they dumb?

One of the most prominent among them is the country singer John Rich – an alumni and 2011 winner of Donald Trump's Celebrity Apprentice reality show.

He shared a picture of the ruined Nike socks, and explained that his soundman, a former U.S. marine, was potesting by cutting the brand's logo out. He threatened that many more people would boycott the brand.

While many others have followed their example by ruining their Nike products, they are being ridiculed for destroying property they've already paid for with their own money. What do you think?
