Louisiana Mayor Issues Nike Product Ban From City's Recreational Facilities

By Vanessa Nix Anthony

The mayor of Kenner, Louisiana, issued a memo banning Nike products from the city's recreation facilities last week—another retaliatory reaction to Nike's latest ad campaign which features former NFL quarterback, Colin Kaepernick.

The ban from conservative Mayor E. Ben Zahn III also states that any and all apparel and equipment purchased by sports booster clubs for use in the city's recreational facilities must be approved by the city, according to HuffPost.

The memo says:

Under no circumstances will any Nike product or any product with the Nike logo be purchased for use or delivery at any City of Kenner Recreation facility.
