Nike is under fire for terminating its sales with retailers in Israel, the Jerusalem Post reports.

Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee were among many slamming Nike for the move that will reportedly go into effect on May 31, 2022.

“Nike has no problem making & selling stuff in Communist China where SLAVE LABOR makes their crap, but won’t sell in @Israel a free democracy?” Huckabee tweeted. “Anti-Semitic bigotry!”

In a letter to store owners, Nike said: “Following a comprehensive review performed by the company and considering the changing marketplace, it has been decided that the continuation of the business relationship between you and the company does no longer match the company’s policy and goals.”

In response, Blackburn tweeted: “Does that mean they will end their use of slave labor? Or do Nike’s policies and goals support that?”

The JPost reports that the decision is in line with Nike’s global plans to limit the number of stores to exclusively Nike stores and their website, but shoe store owners in Israel say it would harm their ability to stay profitable.
