The actor and comedian was on Real Time With Bill Maher when he put his Don C Nike Air Jordan Legacy 312-clad feet up on the desk, describing the kicks as “freedom-friendly Nikes.” Carrey specifically shouted out Nike and Kaepernick, commending them for their “fantastic choice.” Check out the footage above around the 35-second mark.
Nike’s “Just do it” campaign has made clear the company’s decision to stand behind Kaepernick and his “take a knee” protests. Although that choice has drawn criticism from conservatives, including including President Donald Trump, a great many people — Carrey included — came out in support of the Swoosh and the former NFL player.
Carrey is no stranger to taking a political stance in public. Back in April, the actor shared his anti-Trump paintings on Twitter, which you can check out here.
