  • Posted 16 months Ago

The biggest names in the fashion industry have remained largely quiet regarding Donald Trump's highly controversial Muslim immigration ban, but now Nike's CEO Mark Parker has slammed the move in a statement issued to employees.

"Nike stands together against bigotry and any form of discrimination. Now more than ever, let’s stand up for our values and remain open and inclusive as a brand and as a company," he wrote.

"Mo [Farah] has dedicated his life to competing for his adopted country. And yet, Mo fears that he may not be allowed to return from his training camp in Ethiopia to see his wife and children in Portland," he continued. "What Mo will always have — what the entire Nike family can always count on — is the support of this company. We will do everything in our power to ensure the safety of every member of our family: our colleagues, our athletes and their loved ones."
