Nike Equality Ad is Hypocritical

Nike released a new commercial on Sunday night called 'Equality'. The ad features LeBron James and Serena Williams, among others, and according to a company spokesman "encourages people to take the fairness and respect they see in sport and translate them off the field".  

Only one problem: Nike itself is not treating everyone equal everywhere as it asks us to do in its ad.

According to multiple reports, the shoe and apparel company only pays their overseas factory workers an average of $3 per day to make the same LeBron James shoes they sell in America for $175. By comparison, the average Indonesian Nike factory worker makes 1/76th of what an American factory work would make doing the same job. 

If Nike is going to go with "If we can be equals in sport, we can be equals everywhere" as the company's new tag line, isn't it a bit hypocritical to treat the people who make their products unequally?

Clay Travis appears to be in the only man in sports media who is willing to shine on a light on Nike's hypocrisy. Take a listen below.
