WBFF FOX45: Veteran-owned company calls for Nike ban, issues T-shirt with Betsy Ross flag

A veteran-owned apparel company is jumping into the debate over Nike’s reported decision to pull shoes with an early American flag from shelves by offering some harsh criticism and their own shirts with the ‘Betsy Ross flag.’

Nine Line Apparel is a Savannah, Georgia-based company founded by a military veteran Tyler Meritt and his wife in 2012. In response to Nike’s decision and the debate surrounding it, Merritt says his company Nine Line Apparel has released a t-shirt featuring the flag created during the Second Continental Congress to show unity among the original 13 colonies.
