Melz On TMZ Live: Colin Kaepernick Wins Emmy For Nike Ad
I was working hard as always in the studio on Monday when I got a call from someone I hadn't heard from in about 6 months... the folks at TMZ Live!
Over the weekend one of the big headlines in entertainment according to TMZ involved former NFL quarterback and activist Colin Kaepernick winning an Emmy for “outstanding commercial” at the 2019 Creative Arts Emmy Awards for his controversial "Dream Crazy" ad.
My opinion about this ad has not changed. No matter WHAT SIDE you're on, whether you agree with Kap or not, the message Kap and Nike sends in this ad is universal and should be agreed upon by all, pursue your crazy dreams with unbridled passion and belief and never let anyone tell you that you can't do something.
But of course, instead of listening to THE MESSAGE, a small minority of idiots tried to use it as a tactic to divide people and some called for a boycott of Nike and even a few morons began burning Nike gear (they already paid for) to show their "disagreement" with the company for backing Kaepernick. But many more people brought into the message and Nike's sales and profits soared.
So I was invited onto TMZ Live to share my thoughts on Kap's Emmy win.
Congratulations to Colin, Nike and everyone involved in this ad. The award is well deserved and remember kids, continue to #DreamCrazy.
