ARE YOU IN TO BUILDING BRIDGES RATHER THAN WALLS?

27 February 2017 Comments 4

Recently the CEO of Under Armour, Kevin Plank, came under fire because of his lavish praise of US President, Donald Trump.

Some of his sponsored athletes and other ambassadors, such as ballet dancer Misty Copeland and actor Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, were not impressed. Just as Plank spoke out, so did they – making their views known privately to him and via social media.

As regular readers of Watercooler will know, at SKINS we think you’ve not only got to have brand values, but you’ve got to live up to them. That’s what we work hard to do.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion and their values. But we do say this.

If you don’t share our values, don’t buy our products.

If you do think the way we do, then please rise-up with us.

Let’s make the whole world great again by building bridges, not walls.

    Couldn’t agree more. More companies should be on the front lines and rise up to tackle hate

    Dear Jaimie,

    After tonights speech from Trump you should open your heart and work with the man. Have not been a Trump fan at all. But, he said very communal things for every soul. Compassion is a virtue and it takes a lot to give it when you are so convinced that someone doesn’t deserve it, but that is when you have character and true compassion.

    Jaimie, it appears from your comments that your building walls with your very political comments. Please stick to selling and promoting your products, not your disagreement with half of the US populations view of “walls and bridges”. CNN and MSNBC are always look for fresh talent.
