More than 500 people have signed a petition chastising an Orange County, California principal who called former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick a thug in a Facebook post Tuesday.

Roni Burns-Ellis, principal of McGaugh Elementary in Seal Beach, took to Facebook in response to apparel giant Nike’s decision to make the former 49ers quarterback and lightning rod civil rights activist the face of its latest “Just Do It” advertising campaign, according to the petition.

“My newest rag! When Nike signs an anti-American thug to represent their brand, I will not support, wear, purchase, or endorse their product. Bye-bye Nike,” Burns-Ellis allegedly wrote in a now-deleted post.
